AQHA Debuts New Look to Open World Schedule
The Lucas Oil AQHA World Championship Show returns to Oklahoma State Fair Park November 2-18 in Oklahoma City. Owners, exhibitors, and fans will notice a very different look when they view the 2017 tentative schedule, which is now available online at www.aqha.com/worldshow.
Member feedback aided the AQHA Show Department in crafting the 2017 Lucas Oil World tentative schedule. Based on responses to a survey that was emailed in January to 2016 Lucas Oil World horse owners and exhibitors, the AQHA Show Department staff made adjustments to how they created the show’s 2017 schedule. One consistent suggestion in the survey results was to group similar events together.
“What keeps us in awe of the American Quarter Horse is the versatility of the breed. That’s what makes the Lucas Oil World so special – we see thousands of horses and exhibitors come together to vie for 99 world championships in a multitude of events,” said AQHA Chief Show Officer Pete Kyle. “Because this show is so diverse, there are certainly challenges that arise when developing the schedule. We’re very appreciative of the owners and exhibitors who aided us in updating the schedule for this year.”
The Lucas Oil World also plays host to the AQHA Level 2 Championships, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan). Qualifying for these two events ends July 31, 2017.
