The family that shows together, grows together.
The Utah Junior Livestock Association is dedicated to helping youth in Utah 4-H and FFA programs promote and gain mastery in animal project areas. With several state association shows, youth can go beyond their county borders and build life long friendships, develop valuable life skills, and immerse themselves in animal agriculture.

Exhibitors are encouraged to participate in the complete educational opportunity that junior livestock shows provide, such as the rate of gain, carcass, fitting and showing, record book, and livestock judging contests along with the judging of market and breeding animals. It is the purpose of these projects to develop life skills and animal husbandry and marketing skills among the participants.

Ranch Pleasure - One of the fastest-growing classes in the show arena is ranch pleasure. This event is designed to show off the movement, versatility, and attitude of the working ranch-style horse presented in a natural, forward-moving style that looks as if he has somewhere to go.

Just about any horse and rider can compete in ranch pleasure as long as they have these basics already in place: ability to move off the rider's leg and rein, and ability to lope off in the correct lead.

Ranch Trail - Obstacles found in a ranch trail pattern are approximate to those found during the course of everyday work. Judges are looking for a well-trained, responsive and well-mannered horse that can correctly navigate and negotiate the course, and to do so in a correct and efficient manner.

Ranch Riding - In the ranch riding class, judges are looking for relaxed, responsive horses with soft and cadenced gaits. The horse should make timely transitions in a smooth and correct manner, plus the horse should be soft in the bridle and yield to contact.

Ranch Reining - Ranch reining measures the ability of the stock horse to perform basic handling maneuvers. To rein a horse is not only to guide the horse but also to control the horse's every movement. The best reined horse should be willingly guided or controlled with little or no apparent resistance and dictated to completely.
