The Tulsa Reining Classic, scheduled for August 29–September 4 at Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is in its third year of partnership with APHA, and it’s once again a 2017 APHA World Show-qualifying event. The continued partnership between APHA and the Tulsa Reining Classic provides exhibitors with a valuable opportunity to earn qualification credits.

“I hope Paint Horses, owners and exhibitors join us in Fort Worth in November for even more great prizes, cash and recognition at the APHA World Show,” Director of Youth and Amateur Activities and Awards Christine Henry said.
