The 2018 AQHA West Level 1 Championships kicked off today in Las Vegas. Exhibitors at the AQHA West Level 1 Championships prepared for the first day of competition at the South Point Equestrian & Events Center with classes beginning at 10 a.m. 

The AQHA West Level 1 Championships, which run April 18-22, offers a variety of events and activities for competitors, friends, family and spectators to take part in throughout the show, including free Ride the Pattern clinics taught by AQHA Professional Horsemen and the new AQHA Level 1 Championships Educational Series.

This year’s show will feature Level 1 classes and Rookie classes, sponsored by B&W Trailer Hitches. AQHA walk-trot classes are also debuting at the 2018 Level 1 Championships. Walk-trot classes are the perfect way for eligible exhibitors to get in the arena and gain experience, which goes hand-in-hand with the purpose of the Level 1 Championships. 

These levels of AQHA competition are designed for everyone from the minimally accomplished to beginner AQHA competitors, respectively.
