The Farnam AQHA World Championship Show and AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), return to the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City October 28 - November 20. Owners, exhibitors and trainers can view the 2021 tentative schedule, which is now available at www.aqha.com/worldshow. Online entry information will be available soon at www.aqha.com/worldshow. Estimated times on the schedule may vary based on the number of entries received.

This year’s Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World will also host the Adequan® Level 2 and Nutrena Level 1 championships.

The AQHA Executive Committee previously made the decision to waive qualifying for all classes, with the exception of an alternative qualifying requirement for open-division roping classes, due to the impact of the pandemic on qualifying events; traditional qualifying will resume for the 2022 AQHA championship shows.

“The Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World is the most prestigious event in the equine industry, where we see exhibitors and horses vie for world championship honors and the coveted golden globe across a multitude of disciplines,” said Justin Billings, AQHA chief show officer. “We are proud to offer this show as a celebration of the American Quarter Horse and those who love it. The AQHA Show Council, Cattle Advisory Committee and AQHA Executive Committee have worked diligently to help us create a schedule that meets a variety of needs for a multitude of classes. This year’s event adds four days of competition to better accommodate a large number of entries. Entry information will be available soon, and exhibitors will have the convenience of entering online once again this year.”

Returning to the Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World is the 42nd Annual Triangle Fall Horse Sale. Specializing in western performance American Quarter Horses, the Triangle Horse Sale has a reputation as one of the most versatile consignment horse sales in the country. The sale is anticipated to attract high-quality horses and create an amazing marketplace during the first Friday and Saturday of the show.

The Adequan® Select World is the world’s largest, single-breed world championship horse show open exclusively to amateur exhibitors age 50 and over. This is the pinnacle event for Select amateur competitors around the world and will take place in conjunction with the Farnam AQHA World Show.
