AQHA World Show Schedules

Show competitors, it’s time to make your plans, finish qualifying and get ready for the World Show in your division. To help you plan early, AQHA has released schedules for the Built Ford Tough AQHYA, Adequan Select, Bank of America Amateur and FedEx Open World Championship shows.

“Significant improvements have been made to all of the schedules for AQHA’s slate of World Shows,” said Tom Persechino AQHA Executive Director of Competition and Breed Integrity. “We hope these modifications, as well as the early release date of these schedules, will make it easier for exhibitors to plan their summer and fall trips to Oklahoma City or Amarillo.”

Among the changes to the Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show schedule: AQHA will utilize the performance arena, begin with performance halter and move halter classes up earlier in the schedule. The Ford Youth World begins Friday, July 30, and continues through Saturday, August 7. View the 2010 schedule at www.aqha.com/youth/activities/yws/schedule.html.

Competitors coming to Amarillo for the Adequan Select World Championship Show need to plan on arriving a day earlier and will get home a day earlier to enjoy the Labor Day weekend with their loved ones. The show now begins on Sunday, August 29, and wraps up on Saturday, September 4. See the schedule at www.aqha.com/showing/shows/selectshow/schedule.html.

For all schedules, AQHA has slightly spread the time between preliminaries and finals.

“So many exhibitors – from youth to select to professionals – told us they would like more time to celebrate making the finals with their friends and family,” Persechino said. “We had refined the schedule so much that in many cases preliminaries and finals were back-to-back. By adding some time, our members can go enjoy a nice dinner, relax with family or simply relish in the fact they are one of the top 15 in the world. Part of the fun of showing is celebrating every accomplishment and being in the top 15 is a big accomplishment few have the chance to realize.”

To see the schedule for the 2010 Bank of America Amateur and FedEx Open World Championship Show, visit www.aqha.com/showing/shows/worldshow/schedule.html.

Following the AQHA Convention in Kissimmee, Florida, earlier this week, AQHA’s expanded Show Council approved the revised schedules. The council had asked that the schedules be modified and made available earlier to benefit exhibitors.
