“These shows are the best way for exhibitors to get their feet wet in AQHA championship events,” said Charlie Hemphill, AQHA director of shows and new events. “Thanks to the help of our partners, competitors will be vying for some great prizes at each of the regional championship shows.”

Exhibitors from every region are invited to attend a Regional Championships, but an exhibitor can only compete at one Regional Championships per year.
