Cattle Event Hosted For the First Time At Northern Michigan Ranch
The Michigan Reined Cow Horse Association brought fun and a little bit of history to Northern Michigan today. A first time cattle event began this morning at the JDJ Ranch in Evart and runs through tomorrow. Beginners and professionals both saddled up today as they showed off their skills on horseback to a crowd of onlookers and judges. The event had previously been shown downstate, but the association's founder got an idea last September to host it right here in Northern Michigan. The event also offers classes for newcomers, who are showing a lot of interest in the sport. Last weekend had about one hundred and fourteen entries, and today alone has already seen more than that.
