GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – A group of competitors took their saddles and 4-legged friends to the Mesa County Fairgrounds in a weekend-long horse competition.

The Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association held their fall classic horse show where more than 70 horses participated to promote the American Quarter Horse which is the oldest breed registry in the nation.

Competitors were judged on several factors including discipline and level of difficulty.

The director of the Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association says at one point people did this for profit but now it's for the love of the animal.

"It's about the quality of ride and spending time with that animal and accomplishing something with that individual. That's your teammate, that's your partner, you're playing a sport with a teammate and you two have to be in sync, you two have to get along," said Marvin Kapushion, Director of the Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association.

This is the first Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse show in Mesa County in more than 20 years.

It has been confirmed this show will be held in Mesa County next year as well.
