The Black Hills Stock Show kicks off with the Zoetis Animal Health Winter Classic AQHA Horse Show. Competitors from across the United States will gather in Rapid City to compete. The show will feature 54 different classes from Reining, Working Cow Horse, Halter, Cutting and Roping classes. The Winter Classic has gained popularity within the ranks of the horse world due to the triple judged aspect of the show. Participants can gain 3 times the AQHA points at one show.
