The leading breeder of horses competing at the 2022 APHA World Championship Show and the 2022 APHA/WCHA Halter Million will receive special recognition, thanks to a new award.
The Leading Breeder Award will be presented to the breeder whose horses earn the most points based on Top 10 placings in all world championship classes at the 2022 APHA World Championship (June 24-July 10) and the APHA/WCHA Halter Million (September 24-October 2); both events take place at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas. Awards will be compiled separately at each event.
- All Youth, Amateur and Open world championship classes count toward the tally.
- Challenge, Sweepstake, Futurity, Stakes, and other non-world championship classes do not count toward the tally.
- The breeder is based on the member number listed as such on the horse’s APHA registration.
- At least 3 horses by that breeder must be exhibited at the show.
Full details are posted in the APHA World Championship Show and APHA/WCHA Halter Million premium books.
The APHA World Show features more than $1.35 million in cash and prizes, and the APHA/WCHA Halter Million offers more than $1 million in cash to exhibitors.
