More than $100,000 in scholarships for YOUth at the 2023 APHA World Championship Show

You’ve invested a lot into your horse obsession … let it pay off two-fold at the APHA World Championship Show!

We’re awarding more than $100,000 in scholarships at this year’s show—up to four in EVERY Youth world championship class—in addition to world championship titles and great prizes. The Top Three exhibitors, plus one randomly selected exhibitor, win scholarship prizes … that means EVERY SINGLE EXHIBITOR has a chance to earn cash for college.

It’s more than just a horse show—it’s an investment in your education!

Scholarship funds are held in trust for the winners, and can be redeemed within four years of high-school graduation for use at any accredited high-education institution.

The World Show takes place June 23-July 9 in Fort Worth, Texas, and the show schedule is available online. Online entries are open at apha.com/worldshow. Entries are accepted until 5 p.m. the day before classes take place, but get the best rates by pre-entering by May 15.
