To all exhibitors, advertisers, and vendors who participated in the 2021 Border Bonanza Horse Show in Sedalia . . . .
for bringing some great horses and competitive exhibitors to this year's show. Despite the chilly weather (of course it was perfect weather the last day of the show), it was nice to see everyone sitting outside and visiting with each other. After having to cancel the 2020 show, we were happy to be back in action this year.
CONGRATULATIONS to all winners, and we hope to see you back in Sedalia next year!

The Greater Kansas City Arabian Horse Association was chartered in 1964 as the original Arabian Horse Association (AHA) affiliate for the Kansas City area. Each year the Club co-sponsors the Mo-Kan Border Bonanza, a major Region 8 & 11 dual-qualifying Class A Arabian horse show. GKCAHA also sponsors a successful one-day All-Breed show on the Pony Express circuit, and participates in the American Royal horse show, a Kansas City tradition steeped in history. Among the social events the Club hosts, our Midwinter Celebration is an annual tradition for all members, honoring the High Point winners of the show season at a dinner and presentation of awards.
The Greater Kansas City Arabian Horse Association (GKCAHA) has an active membership of Arabian Horse enthusiasts from Kansas, Missouri, and surrounding states. Many of our members serve on Regional and National AHA Committees, and are active as workers and exhibitors at the various National Championships. The GKCAHA Youth Group has nurtured many current adult members of the organization and has activities planned throughout the year. GKCAHA offers several types of memberships to allow participation from every type of Arabian enthusiast.
