Exhibitors from 42 states, two provinces and four countries marched August 7 during the Parade of Teams at the 2017 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show.
The teams paraded through the Jim Norick Coliseum at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds in front of a crowd full of proud parents.
After the march, youth who were year-end high-point winners for 2016 were recognized, shaking hands with AQHA President Ralph Seekins of Fairbanks, Alaska. Show contest winners were also recognized.
The youth listened to clips from a motivational message before 2017-18 AQHYA officers and directors were recognized and the officers received belt buckles to commemorate their service.
