The 2016 AQHA Region One Scholarship Show kicked off August 18 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington. An all-Rookie/Level 1 show got the event underway with 314 total entries. Thanks to the $75 flat-fee, many riders anteed up to show all day in AQHA's core classes, with even reiners and ranch riders taking a spin in hunter under saddle and hunt seat equitation.

Brandy Glase of Monroe, Washington, celebrates a win in Level 1 amateur walk-trot hunt seat equitation with her mare Mango Margarita. Brandy says their favorite class is ranch riding, but thanks to the show's attractive flat-fee, they tried out a number of classes.

Entries were impressive across with the board, with Level 1 youth and Level 1 amateur showmanship classes clocking in with 26 entries each.

The Region One Scholarship Show – hosted by the Washington State, Oregon, Alaska and British Columbia Quarter Horse associations – continues through Sunday, August 21. In addition to great prizes, Level 1 youth and amateur exhibitors compete Friday through Sunday for a qualification to the 2017 AQHA Level 1 Championships.
