The nine day international competition will showcase some of the industry’s most talented, athletic, and versatile equines and their exhibitors that the ApHC has to offer. Exhibitors will be competing in a wide array of classes including jumping, cattle, halter, western pleasure, and unique-to-the-breed horse against horse speed events. The World Championship Appaloosa Show offers an exciting experience showcasing multiple disciplines.

In conjunction with the rewarding competition, the sense of camaraderie will be boosted by several special events that allow for the giving spirit to excel. On Sunday, Oct. 27, the ApHC and World Show attendees will participate in the "Think Pink" Performance. The American Cancer Society Benefit Calcutta will run concurrently with Camas Prairie Stump Race and all proceeds will be donated back to the American Cancer Society.

Friday, Nov. 1, "Toys for Tots" Performance night kicks off with classes including, Most Colorful at Halter, Rope Race, the always popular Freestyle Reining, and the night concludes with the Open Two-Year-Old Snaffle Bit Western Pleasure Futurity, a glimpse at the future of the Appaloosa show arena. Don’t forget to bring an unwrapped child’s toy for donation, as that will serve as an admission ticket and raffle ticket for the night’s performance. Throughout the evening ApHC will be raffling off numerous items donated by various sponsors, vendors, and supporters of the World Championship Show.

The annual World Appaloosa Sale will spotlight impressive yearlings, preferred show horses and breeders’ sale horses.
