The annual Arizona Fall Championship took place last week from September 21-24 at the WestWorld of Scottsdale. This is a great AQHA show to attend for great awards, warm weather and opportunities for competitive futurity classes.
The show is known as “The Show For Everyone”. It has been committed to welcoming all levels of exhibitor, and creating an environment that is simultaneously first-class, fun, and exhibitor friendly. No matter your level of expertise, there is a level in which to show, and great rewards for winning. Scottsdale Performance Saddles sponsored by Scottsdale Western were given to the Non Pro High Point champs in Level 1, Level 2 and in Level 3. The coveted Championship bronze horse trophies were awarded once again in all AQHA classes that showed to 6 judges. Logo outerwear was awarded to 2nd through 5th places in each Circuit.

The enthusiasm for Versatility Ranch Horse classes at the Fall Championship has steadily grown, as did the offerings. VRH Trail and VRH Conformation exhibitors showed to six judges as well, with Circuit Champions receiving bronze trophies and 2nd through 5th place circuit awards. The All Around Open Ranch Champion were awarded a Leson Classic Saddle sponsored by Leson Saddles. The Amateur All Around Ranch Champion received a Jeff Smith saddle.

The show’s legendary Give-Aways enhance its reputation for fun. The Prize Patrol was hard at work delivering the treasure trove of goodies to exhibitors. From riding challenges to trivia challenges, from hard luck exhibitor awards to random back number draws, the prizes just kept flowing.
There is so much offered and so much to win at the Arizona Fall Championship; it delivers a very good value for your showing time and dollars. Any way you look at it, this show has you covered and WestWorld is definitely the place to be next fall!
