In the World of Quarter Horses- Oklahoma City is the Ultimate Destination Each November

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 16:35:46 CST

In the World of Quarter Horses-  Oklahoma City is the Ultimate Destination Each November Each November, it has become a tradition for competitive equine enthusiasts across the globe to make Oklahoma City an annual destination, to take part in the Lucas Oil American Quarter Horse World Championship. Contestants and spectators alike have the opportunity between now and November 18th, to enjoy some of the best that the horse world has to offer. Event organizer, Sarah Davisson, of the American Quarter Horse Association, joined Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays in studio this week to discuss the show, that attracted over 4,800 entries this year. You can listen to their complete conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.

“These exhibitors qualify and compete all year long just to compete at State Fair Park,” Davisson said, adding that there is something for everybody at the show. “You can see a little bit of everything. The American Quarter Horse is the world’s most versatile horse and you get to see that versatility here in Oklahoma City.”

Those that wish to spend some time visiting State Fair Park to watch and take part in the event, are encouraged to visit AQHA.com for a tentative schedule of events. While the show has everything from barrel racing to jumping and halter to Western pleasure - Davisson says one the most popular divisions is Ranch Riding classes - ranch sorting and team penning for instance which topped this year’s list with the most entries.

Exhibitors compete all year long at AQHA sanctioned shows to acquire enough points to qualify to compete in this show. During this event, 99 world champions will be crowned, including the most prestigious - Lucas Oil Super Horse Award. Just to compete for this coveted award, a horse must qualify in three different events in three different categories. This year, there are 27 contenders. The winner will walk away with the title, bragging rights and a $25,000 cash prize.

For only ten dollars, spectators can take part in all these events. At no cost, though, attendees can also get a head start on their Christmas shopping at the show’s trade show with over 100 western and ranch business vendors.

Davisson will join Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays for his weekly In the Field segment on KWTV News9 in the Oklahoma City area on Saturday morning at 6:40 a.m.
