Winter Slide Set in Ardmore

The 2023 Winter Slide runs January 26-29 at the Hardy Murphy Coliseum in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

“We’re excited to start 2023 with the Winter Slide,” said Pete Kyle, Winter Slide owner and manager. “There are classes for all levels of riders and we’re pleased that this show is NRHA, SWRHA, OKRHA and AQHA approved, giving exhibitors an opportunity to earn more toward their show goals in the new year.”

Now in its 12th year, the Winter Slide offers a full slate of National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) and American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) approved classes including the Markel Insurance Novice Horse Open Derby and Non Pro Derby for horses earning less than $10,000 as of January 1, 2023, Red River Equine Veterinary Services and Repo Center Non Pro Challenge for horses aged 8-years-old and older along with the open and non pro derbies. Youth winning high point awards in the NRHA 13-and-under and 14-18 division will receive belt buckles courtesy of Randy Shepherd, a non pro competitor and advocate of the next generation of reiners.
