Lindsey wins AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse Amateur World Championship
The director of the Texas Tech's Equestrian Center reined in a top national honor this month in the horse world. Kim Lindsey and her talented buckskin gelding Judys Ten won the American Quarter Horse Association's Versatility Ranch Horse Amateur World Championship today (Mar. 21) in Houston.
The AQHA Zoetis Versatility Ranch Horse Show is held in conjunction with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Program officials note that the ranch horse competition promotes the athletic ability and versatility of the horse and is demonstrated in five categories: ranch riding, ranch trail, ranch cutting, working ranch horse and ranch conformation. There are divisions for open, amateur, novice amateur and youth.
Lindsey, who joined Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences in 2012, is the Executive Director of the Stock Horse of Texas Association. She is instrumental in managing the student, teaching and research programs housed at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center, a 40-acre facility located roughly 10 miles from the university's main campus.
Tech's equestrian center has a collection of facilities including two indoor arenas, six outdoor arenas and a 180-stall barn. A number of equine-related programs are based in the Department of Animal and Food Sciences. The Equestrian Team, Ranch Horse Team, Rodeo Team, Horse Judging Team and the Therapeutic Riding Program all use the center.
