The 67th Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show trots back to Scottsdale

Posted

The Arabian Horse Association of Arizona has announced the return of the 67th annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show.

The annual event will run from Thursday, Feb. 17 to Sunday, Feb. 27, 2022, at WestWorld, 16601 N. Pima Road in Scottsdale. Noted as the world’s largest horse show, the event features the best Arabians, competitions, a shopping expo and more, according to a press release.

The 2022 show will feature more than 2,000 horses competing for more than $3 million in prize money.  A new class showcasing two-year-old horses competing for a $10,000 prize has been added.

Event-goers can also look forward to ranch horse classes testing the Arabians’ ability to perform ranch tasks, proving the uniqueness of this horse as good for pleasure riding, working and agility

“We are thrilled to announce that the Scottsdale show will return offering guests and spectators the full experience next year,” said Taryl O’Shea, executive director of the AHAA in the release. “Due to the pandemic, things looked different at the last show, but this year’s will be bigger and better welcoming the horse community back to Scottsdale.”

A new immersive experience will also debut this year. The HoofbeatZ USA program will give attendees a hands-on experience to learn, touch and ride while visiting WestWorld during the Show. The goal of HoofbeatZ USA is to introduce newcomers to the world of horses and all the benefits they offer. This interactive experience will be included in the event ticket.

The AHAA will also be celebrating the declaration of the first National Arabian Horse Day on Feb. 19, with numerous special events and activities at the show, according to the release.

Along with the engaging performances, event attendees will have the opportunity to see exhibits featuring fine art, crafts, clothing and jewelry in the Shopping Expo adjacent to the main arena. More than 300 artisans and entrepreneurs are expected to sell unique goods and offer a wide variety of products and services.

Starting at 8 a.m. each day, general admission tickets cost $15, tickets for seniors are $10, while children aged 12 and under are free.

Specials include:

  • Military Appreciation Day when military personnel and their families can attend for free is Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022.
  • Family night will be held on Friday, Feb. 25, giving families free admission beginning at 6:30 p.m.
  • A special general admission ticket good for all 11 days can be purchased for $75.

The show will benefit several charities including Arabian Horsemen’s Distress Fund, Friends of Vail Foundation, Healing Hearts Animal Rescue and Refuge, Horses Help TRC, Scottsdale Community College, March of Dimes, and Youth For Troops, the release added.
