With preparations underway for the Dixie National Quarter Horse Show, the Mississippi Quarter Horse Association is pleased to announce the addition of FARNAM as a Corporate Sponsor of the 2018 event. The event is scheduled for February 13-18, 2018, at the State Fairgrounds in Jackson, Mississippi, and FARNAM has come on board as sponsor of the Free Style Reining event, which will take place Friday night, February 16, 2018.
The Free Style Reining has become the highlight of the Dixie National Quarter Horse Show, and truly demonstrates the great physical ability of the American Quarter Horse. In this class, horse and rider perform reining maneuvers to music and the combination of the two makes for a spectacular show. Approximately 6,000 spectators will journey to Jackson, MS to witness this communication of horse and rider, making the Free Style Reining a crowd favorite.
