It is here that years of dedication, motivation and commitment come down to a remarkable 14 days. The AQHA World Championship Show is the industry’s premier event – with good reason. It is the world’s largest and richest championship horse show with more than $1.6 million dollars in prize money and awards. It features World championships in 86 demanding classes. Not just any horse can enter–he must have earned the right.

A horse is only eligible to compete in a class in which he has earned the minimum number of points assigned to that class at AQHA-approved shows. Invitations are sent only to those whose horses have qualified. The AQHA World Championship Show is more than just intense competition aboard the world’s most popular and versatile horse. It also involves people whose lifestyles exemplify dedication to the American Quarter Horse and the individual events which have enriched their lives.

The AQHYA World Championship Show

For seven days each summer, youth from virtually every corner of the globe vie to be named the world’s best among 2,000 participants in 30 classes. The AQHYA World Championship Show is the payoff for months of preparation, hard work, and the “falling-off-and-getting-right-back-on-again” kind of determination it takes to earn the right to participate. Participants must have qualified through the state in which they reside or nationally with a specified number of points. It’s seven days of intense competition to be certain. But the AQHYA World Championship Show is much more than that.

In addition to show competition, there are other events and activities for members including judging contests and public speaking contests. All of this is designed so that each participant will bring home a lifetime of values and increased appreciation for the American Quarter Horse that will last a lifetime. After all, the youth are what future is about.
