TULSA, Oklahoma -

Horses and their riders competed this weekend at the Oklahoma Reining Horse Association's Ride and Slide.

Competitors follow patterns to showcase their ability to control their horse, and the horse's ability to follow orders.

This weekend was an international affair, with riders coming from as far away as Brazil and Germany. Organizers say Tulsa's Expo Square draws a lot of competitors.

"This facility is exceptional for what we do. And so the trainers and competitors like to come here," said Heidi Arvidson, Oklahoma Reining Horse Association.

Even if it wasn't the biggest event - riders still gave it their all - as the results from this weekend go towards qualifying them for the national championships - held in Oklahoma City in November.
