Go-To Place for 2020 AQHYA World Championship Show
The Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show is the world’s largest, single-breed world championship horse show open exclusively to youth exhibitors 18 years and younger. The Ford Youth World is hosted this year at the Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, July 29 through August 8th.
This is the pinnacle event for youth competitors around the world who must qualify for the event by earning a predetermined number of points to secure a spot in each of the classes, representing English, western and halter disciplines. The other road to qualifying is for competitors to participate and compete through their state or provincial affiliate.
