Think horses are cool? Like things that are free? Then you should check out the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association RedBud Spectacular Horse show this Thursday, May 29 through June 8 at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City. Click here for a full schedule of events.

Riders will compete in Western riding, speed events, roping, reining, barrel racing and more. Don't know what any of that means? No problem. We promise you don't have to know a canter from a gallop to have a good time. Plus, admission is free. For those of you looking for affordable, family-friendly entertainment, it doesn't get any more affordable than free.

As an American Quarter Horse Association sanctioned event, riders that win their category at the Redbud Spectacular get the chance to move on to the AQHA World Championship Show, which will be in Oklahoma City August 2-9.
