How do you become the No. 1 event on the American Quarter Horse Association national circuit? It’s all in the numbers. Last year, the Redbud Spectacular counted more than 15,000 entrants to the many competitions congregated under the auspices of the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association showcase. From heeling, jumping and working to the challenge of various riding styles to showing mares, geldings and stallions, the Redbud Spectacular is, indeed, a marvel of quarter horse excellence with a multitude of competitions open to many age groups. The 2012 circuit takes place around Oklahoma State Fair Park’s grounds May 31-June 10. Perhaps Redbud’s success doesn’t rely on numbers so much as its opportunity to steep your self in everything celebratory of the horse and rider connection.
