Western pleasure exhibitor standouts in both open Level 3 and Adequan® Level 2, riding multiple horses, with their overall placing points added together, will be titled champions. In short, that describes the Western Pleasure Challenge, which is returning to the 2021 Farnam AQHA World Championship Show and AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), slated for October 28 - November 20 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.

The titles of Level 3 and Level 2 Western Pleasure Challenge champions will be presented to the exhibitor who earns the most points, showing up to three horses. The catch is a 3-year-old western pleasure opportunity, the $5,000-added 3-year-old western pleasure stakes class, sponsored by Rusty and Katie Green of Ocala, Florida, is a mandatory class. Exhibitors then choose up to two additional horses from their 2-year-old western pleasure, junior western pleasure or senior western pleasure entries, to be matched with their 3-year-old stakes horse entry.

Only have a horse for the 3-year-old western pleasure stakes class? No problem, enter and show in the stakes only. Only have one other horse to match with your stakes horse? Enter and compete with only the two entries – and, if you place high enough, take home the cash. Best of all, so long as you enter the 3-year-old western pleasure stakes class, it is free to compete in the Western Pleasure Challenge.  

Entry information will be available soon at www.aqha.com/worldshow.

About the Western Pleasure Challenge
Exhibitors will declare their Level 3 or Adequan® Level 2 eligibility and compete as such. Western Pleasure Challenge added money will be split equally between Level 3 and Adequan® Level 2 exhibitors. Entry fees paid will accrue directly to the purses of the Level 3 or Adequan® Level 2 exhibitors. The same exhibitor must show each horse in their respective class. Each horse’s placing in their respective western pleasure classes goes toward the composite score that determines the overall challenge winner.
