The American Quarter Horse Association hosted the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Wrangler Champions Challenge contestants September 18 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum in Amarillo, Texas. The cowboys and cowgirls participated in a special luncheon and draw at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum before competing that evening at the Tri-State Fair in Amarillo. 

Amarillo is the second of four stops of the Wrangler Champions Challenge. The Champions Challenge rodeos air on Great American Country in a made-for-TV series, featuring the top-10 competitors in each event. The format is a 10-person, single-round rodeo, with the wins going to the fastest times and highest scores. Autograph sessions are held after each event with the top-four contestants from that evening’s performance. 

AQHA has been a long-time sponsor of the PRCA, including the presentation of the AQHA-PRCA Horse of the Year awards and support of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. AQHA is also supporting PRCA’s expanded television programming on GAC-TV, with brief features in several shows called AQHA’s Horse Power. The Hall of Fame will be featured in coverage of the Wrangler Champions Challenge from Amarillo at 4 p.m. CDT on September 29, with a repeat at 8 a.m. CDT on October 5.

The Hall of Fame also includes eight large banners, detailing the winners of all of the AQHA-PRCA Horse of the Year awards since 1989, as well as an exhibit dedicated to professional cowboy Trevor Brazile who holds the most records in PRCA.
