To honor the contributions that ranch horses have made to the heritage of the American Quarter Horse, the American Quarter Horse Association and AQHA Corporate Partner Zoetis present an annual award to honor a ranch for raising outstanding ranch horses.

Applications for the 2014 Zoetis-AQHA Best Remuda Award are due January 15. Applications can be requested at or at 806-378-4711.
