Perfecting your moves for the APHA World Show’s pattern classes just got a whole lot easier—the 2016 APHA Open/Amateur World Championship Show patterns are now available!
This year’s patterns are presented by HorseShowPatterns.com, and are accessible via the World Show website; membership to HorseShowPatterns.com is not required to access the patterns. Printed pattern books will also be available in the APHA Horse Show Office at the Will Rogers Memorial Center during the show.
APHA World Show action takes place in Fort Worth, Texas, November 2–13. Get a leg up on the competition by attending the Ride the Pattern seminar Tuesday, November 1 from 2-5 p.m. in the John Justin Arena. A World Show judge will walk through the horsemanship, equitation and showmanship patterns with volunteer demo riders, offering opinions and recommendations for pattern perfection as well as answer exhibitors’ questions.
