The Red Hot Ranch Horse Challenge is in the bag! Whew!
Thank-you to our sponsors! Kenny and Nancy King for the saddle, The NM Appaloosa Club, Joy and Scott Roberts, Pharm Aloe Equine, Bain Cochran Construction, Old Mill in Belen, T&T Trailers, Western Mercantile in Tijeras and Las Cruces, Horseman’s Feed, East Mountain Equine, Sandia Trailer, Performance Equine, Patty Wilber and Judith Huchton

Janet also won the saddle donated by Kenny and Nancy King that was raffled off among the top five non-pro riders!
