The AQHA World Championship Show is the premier event in the equine industry. Competitors must reach a predetermined number of points to secure a spot in each of the classes. Competitors and their American Quarter Horses compete all year long to qualify for the honor of qualifying for this annual event and represent the disciplines of English, western and halter. The show brings together exhibitors, owners, breeders and fans of the American Quarter Horse from around the world for two weeks of exciting competition, educational opportunities and a bountiful trade show.
AQHA wants to make sure you have the information you need to keep your audience informed about the AQHA World Show happenings.
