The 2012 Farnam Superhorse contenders and their connections paraded before an avid audience November 11 at the AQHA World Championship Show.
One by one, the horses strode down a jogging trail lined with greenery in Barn 3. Each horse had its picture made, and the owners and trainers received a bag of goodies from The American Quarter Horse Journal and AQHA Corporate Partner Tractor Supply Co.
They were also photographed for posterity.
As soon as the horses left the “red dirt” carpet, it was time for the Paul Bogart Band to swing into action, starting with a hot rendition of “Ring of Fire.”
But before any festivities began, military veterans were honored for their service, and donations were made to the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program.
Photographers from The American Quarter Horse Journal roamed the crowd, catching candid photos and passing out Journal koozies.
