Equine Industry's Premiere Event - AQHA World Championship Show Kicks Off at State Fairgrounds

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 12:48:09 CST

Equine Industry's Premiere Event - AQHA World Championship Show Kicks Off at State Fairgrounds The premiere event in the equestrian industry is happening now through November 19th, 2016 at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds - it is the 2016 American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show. This year’s show features more than 4,900 entries from across the globe, with 15 countries being represented. AQHA’s Sarah Davisson sat down with Radio Oklahoma Network’s Associate Farm Director Carson Horn this week to talk about the event.

“These competitors have qualified to compete right here in Oklahoma City,” Davisson said. “We are just so thrilled to have them all here.”

This is the event of the year in the industry where more than 99 champions will be crowned.

“At this event you won’t just see the roping classes or the English only, it’s a combination of everything,” Davisson said. “There’s definitely something for everyone at this event.”

Experienced equestrians and average spectators will all find something to their liking at the show, with clinics and demonstrations as well as several opportunities for shopping and socializing.

“Not only do we have world class competitions in the arena, we have some shopping, some clinics and some parties to attend,” Davisson said. “Outside of the arena we also have a trade show for all our shoppers out there, so you can get all of your Christmas shopping done in one stop.”

Admission to the trade show and parking is free to the general public; tickets to the arena are $9.00 and can be purchased either at the door or ahead of time by visiting AQHA.com. Event schedules, full coverage of the arena and more information can all be found at the website as well.
