Over $169,000 Offered In UPHA Classic Grand Championships at the UPHA American Royal National Championship Horse Show

The UPHA Classics originated in 1974 to stimulate interest in young horses, and to provide owners and trainers an opportunity to receive substantial prize money. In 1977 the first UPHA Saddlebred Classic Grand Championships were held at the American Royal Horse Show in Kansas City, MO.

The UPHA Classics are designed to be prestigious classes to contribute to the growth and prosperity of the show horse industry. The intent is to promote a high-caliber event and generate a greater prize money return for the young show horse. Young performance entries have greater earning power and therefore can demand higher sales prices. Breeders, owners, and trainers all benefit from the UPHA Classics.

In 2021, the UPHA is proud to announce over $169,000 in prize money was offered to Classics horses!
Congratulations to the 2021 UPHA Classics Grand Champions!
