Good news to those of us sitting at home wishing we could be at the AQHA World Show to see the action as world champions are crowned. The AQHYA, Adequan Select and AQHA world championship shows will be available free to watch online this year. The free webcast will include video feeds from all show arenas.
And exhibitors will be provided a viewing area in the warm-up arenas to watch their run immediately after exiting the show arena.
The dates for these events are:
- July 31 – August 8 – Ford Youth World in Oklahoma City
- August 28 – September 5 – Adequan Select World in Amarillo
- November 6-21 – AQHA World Show in Oklahoma City
A tentative schedule for the AQHA World Show can be found here so you can plan when you need to turn your attention to the broadcast to catch your favorite classes.
AQHA has partnered with Equine Promotion of Whitesboro, Texas, as the videographer and webcaste. Equine Promotion also films the National Reining Horse and National Reined Cow Horse association events, including the NRHA Derby and Futurity and NRCHA Derby and Snaffle Bit Futurity.
“During this year’s AQHA convention, the show committee made the recommendation that there be no charge for the webcast, and the Executive Committee supported it,” said Pete Kyle, AQHA chief show officer.
No word on whether there will be a web feed of the AQHA Novice Championship this fall at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, Va.
