Which Horses Have the Most AQHYA World Championships?

AQHA has always tracked the number of world championships by horse for the AQHA World Championship Show Program, but now that we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the AQHYA World Championship Show, it’s time to look at the horses who’ve won the most youth world titles. These statistics are for Level 3 world championships earned throughout the 50 years of the Youth World. Many of these horses also had successful open and amateur careers before, during or after their youth careers.

Take three-time AQHA  Superhorse Acadamosby Award (pictured right), for example, who amassed 21 AQHA open, amateur and youth world championships. “Oscar” has gold globes in hunter under saddle, hunter hack, pleasure driving, working hunter and equitation over fences during his show career from 1993-2004. He earned 714.5 youth points, 801.5 open points and 284.5 amateur points. Of the total 1,800.5 points he earned, 1,791 of those were in performance classes. He won the coveted Superhorse title in 1998, 2000 and 2001. By Mosby and out of Madcap Maggie, Oscar at 32 is living his best life at Highpoint Performance Horses in Pilot Point, Texas.

“I can’t even put into words how special he is to us,” says AQHA Professional Horseman Charlie Cole who co-owns Highpoint with AQHA Professional Horseman Jason Martin. “He retired sound and healthy at 14. He has a big treat bucket in front of his stall, and everyone loves on him.” Oscar was bred by Jamee L. Golan Bornstein of East Troy, Wisconsin, and is owned by Chelsea Knox of San Clemente, California.
