Arizona National Horse Show To Host Saddlebreds Again


The Arizona National Horse Show has long been part of Arizona National Livestock Show events. Since 1998, when the events were moved to the WestWorld equine complex in Scottsdale, the show has experienced significant growth. This will be the third year that a Saddlebred Horse Show has been included with a full slate of Saddlebred performance, pleasure, and equitation classes. In addition the popular Academy division, designed to encourage horse show participation for new riders, both young and a bit older has been expanded to two days. The Saddlebred Horse Show has also added new junior exhibitor walk and trot classes to encourage young riders, Hackney pony classes, and a selection of “all breed” hunter and saddle seat pleasure classes.

Barbara Hanes of Scottsdale, Ariz., will be judging all classes. The Arizona National offers equine competitions for various interests including an American Quarter Horse Show, American Cutting Horse Association Cutting, a 4-H/FFA Horse Show and of course the Saddlebred show.

The 2006 Horse Show events are scheduled for January 4 - 8, 2006. Entries close Dec. 15, 2005. Please be sure to visit the Arizona National web site at for online entry forms, rules, and all class schedules.
