For a fifth consecutive year, you are invited for PRIME TIME, slated for 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 12, when some of the most talented 3-year-old American Quarter Horses demonstrate their versatility in the Pleasure Versatility Challenge, presented by Super Sires. The event will be held during the 2022 Farnam AQHA World Championship Show and AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. Total purse is again projected to be $50,000 in cash, along with prizes!

Horses competing in the Pleasure Versatility Challenge are shown sequentially in three classes in the Jim Norick Arena: a pattern class, sponsored by Cimarron Trailers, consisting of a blending of simplified trail and western riding maneuvers, which counts 40 percent; a western pleasure class, sponsored by The Equine Chronicle, which counts 40 percent; and a conformation class, sponsored by the World Conformation Horse Association, which counts 20 percent. Blue Ribbon Custom Tack is providing silver show equipment for the winners and, as a special incentive, will be giving away a custom work saddle to the contestant that finishes in 11th place overall.

Horses cannot have been shown ASTRIDE in any western riding, trail or in any similar Pleasure Versatility Challenge event prior to the Farnam AQHA and Adequan® Select World official entry deadline of 5 p.m. Central on September 20. There are no eligibility restrictions for the western pleasure or conformation classes. As of the official entry deadline of September 20, and thereafter, horses may be shown without restriction at any competition without forfeiting Pleasure Versatility Challenge eligibility.
