For those of you who compete at APHA shows on a regular basis, I wanted to let you in on a little secret. Cattle extravaganzas! For those of you who don't have halter horses, yet need those halter points; go to the cattle extravaganzas! While the numbers aren't always that large, the halter classes are large enough to get points. An added benefit to the ones here in northeast Texas; if you show in any of the performance classes, the halter classes are free. Got a horse you need to complete an APHA championship with? Attend some cattle extravaganzas. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. It was an overall great experience and I encourage those of you who do show APHA to attend a cattle extravaganza and find out what it's all about!
