The plan was to conduct this competition at our August 2020 show, however both the aaugust and September shows were canceled. So this competition will be done via each competitor submitting a video of their reining pattern.
Don King Memorial Ranch Reining Virtual WIFQHA Event!
Here’s your chance to ride for an awesome buckle in honor of a great man and strong supporter of WIFQHA! Just record you running the pattern (pattern in comments) in whatever arena you have access to, and upload your video to youtube. FQHR, AQHA, and APHA world champion Judge Liz Truax will judge your run! Liz specializes in versatile ranch horses. The high score will be given the buckle by Dons family on October 11th at 2 pm at Al Young Park in Black River Falls.
A bit more about The Reverend Donald Bruce King
Don’s faith permeated every aspect of his life. This faith also fed his love of people and horses. It might be said that Don was as at home in the saddle or the seat of a tractor as he was in the pulpit. His love of horses and farming began as a boy on his Grandpa Wallenmaier’s farm and came to fruition as a founding member of the Wisconsin Foundation Quarter Horse Association. He influenced and encouraged many of our members over the years.
“Make a story; Show how love and joy, beauty and goodness shine…” Keep this quote and the man in mind while you show your Ranch Reining skills in honor of Don.
All entries are due by Sept 27th. Results will be officially announced at the meeting and event on October 11th at 2:00pm.
Entry fee of $12.00
All exhibitors must be WIFQHA members for the 2020 year.

The board has made the tough decision to cancel the June show. We made the decision by taking into account the shelter in place rules in WI and MN. We need to consider the amount of notice we need to give members, judges, and other show help. Also, it was doubtful that the fair grounds would have been able to host us given that rules will likely be relaxed but most likely not to the point of allowing a gathering of that size. We're going to continue planning our July show. We will be evaluating the possibility of an October show when we are able to have a member meeting. We hope you and your horses are healthy and happy!
Please make sure that you bring your current coggins papers, FQHR papers for your horse and your current FQHR membership card/number to the first show.
We highly encourage registering your horse online to help minimize the wait time in the show office. The link for online entries is located below approximately 3 weeks prior to each show. Each show will need to be registered separately. If you sign up online a week or more prior to the show, you will receive $10 off your show bill.
If the horse/rider has not been to our shows previously, the online registration will not preload the information. It is best for new riders and new horses to email Cindy Koperski at email@example.com with their entry forms in order to put the horse and rider into the system. Once entered into the system, you will then be able to use the online registration link for future shows.
We currently only accept cash or check for payment at the shows.
NSF fees will apply for any returned checks.

Hello new and current WIFQHA members and friends!
The WIFQHA Board would like to clarify how the Jackpot classes will work this year.
We have 6 Jackpot classes available this year: Pole Bending, Barrels, Handy Ranch Horse, Ranch Riding, Herd Work, and Limited Working Cow Horse.
FQHR and All Breed horses are eligible to enter a Jackpot that will run concurrent with the regular classes. You must enter a regular class in order to enter the jackpot. You do not get an extra run for your jackpot entry. Rather, your score or time from the class you competed in will be used for scoring the jackpot class. At time of entry, you must declare which class you would like to designate as your jackpot score or time to come from. Once classes have started you may NOT change your Jackpot class choice or drop your Jackpot class.
The Jackpot class groupings are below all divisions are competing against each other in the same jackpot:
If I sign up for class 1, 4, & 5, I am interested in signing up for the Pole Bending Jackpot and I designate class #1 to be my Pole Bending Jackpot class. I will get a placing and points in class 1 and 5 and the time from my run in class 1 will be used to get a placing for all horses that entered in class 4 (jackpot) from all divisions this is a money only class no points will be awarded.
Let’s have some FUN!
