KEEPING YOU INFORMED
The inaugural APHA Western National Championship Show is scheduled for October 16–19 at the South Point Arena & Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The show will be managed by Southwest Show Management / Carolyn Dobbins. Carolyn Dobbins and her team manage the Goldmine Circuit, an all-breed show that couples with APHA-approved classes to help bridge the gap between open and breed association events. Carolyn’s team is also currently working with the Arizona Paint Horse Club. Carolyn was named 2016 APHA Professional Horsewoman of the Year.
In addition to the Western National Championship excitement, the Silver State Paint Horse Club has partnered with APHA to host a two-judge Youth/Amateur show on October 16, just prior to the start of the Western National Championship Show.
