Let's go someplace warm! A horse show in Arizona!
Excitement is already building for the 63rd Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, held at WestWorld in sunny (hopefully) Scottsdale, AZ.
One of the crown jewels of the Arabian show-horse industry, Scottsdale has grown from its start with only 50 horses back in 1955, to over 2400 horses today. Horses, trainers, breeders, and owners travel from all across the globe to compete in this prestigious, world-renown event.
Not only are there many beautiful horses to see, The WestWorld showground also hosts a veritable mall of shopping opportunities for horse-related items, fashion, jewelry, boots, leather goods, health and skin care products, and so much more.
Families can enjoy many activities that are FREE with paid adult admission (Kids 12 & get in free), including:
On Tuesday, February 20th, military families will get free admission all day.

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.
