Revise the Ranch Riding schedule at the 2015 Open World Show

AQHA Ranch Horse Pleasure class "as is"

Ranch Horse Pleasure has been a very successful and growing class for AQHA and popular among members and new members wanting to try class. Leave class format the same and let this popular class evolve without structural changes. (i.e. leave as individual pattern class, not adding more obstacles etc).
