$100,000 in Youth scholarships & 23 all-around awards at the 2024 APHA World Show

With $100,000 in Youth scholarships and 23 all-around awards offered at the 2024 APHA World Championship Show, exhibitors get the best of both worlds. Cash for college and amazing all-around prize recognition—part of the $1.5 million being awarded at the World Show this year—means there’s no need to choose college savings over horse shows … exhibitors can have their cake and eat it too with APHA!

The World Show takes place June 21-July 7, 2024, at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Pre-entries are due May 15 for the best rates. Online entries will open in April.

No qualifying required!
