Pleasure Versatility Challenge Entries Chasing $50,000 Purse

The Pleasure Versatility Challenge brought to you by Terry Bradshaw Quarter Horses is slated for approximately 6 p.m. on Friday, November 13, in conjunction with the 2020 Farnam AQHA and Adequan Select World Championship Shows at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. Sixteen athletic 3-year-old American Quarter Horses will be tested as they go head-to-head in a versatility competition. The total purse for the event is approaching $50,000, with first-place likely paying a cool $10,000 and 10th place paying double the entry fee at $2,000.

Horses will be shown sequentially in three classes: versatility pattern class, which counts 40 percent; western pleasure class, which counts 40 percent; and a conformation class which counts 20 percent.

In addition to the cash awards, the winner of the pattern and western pleasure classes will receive show headstalls, and the winner of the conformation class will receive a show halter all provided by the official tack sponsor of the Pleasure Versatility Challenge, Blue Ribbon Custom Tack.

In addition to these class awards, the reserve winner in the western pleasure class will receive a Chuck Letchworth Bits & Spurs show bit. The overall champion will receive a custom-made champion buckle provided by Holly Spagnola Design.

AQHA Professional Horsemen Gene Spagnola and Whitney Lagace will provide play-by-play commentary for the live webcast. Tune into the free AQHA World Show live webcast, presented by Farnam, at
