The Arabian Horse Association of Arizona is announcing the return of the 69th annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
The world’s largest Arabian horse show will run from Thursday, Feb. 15, through Sunday, Feb. 25, 2024, featuring the world’s best Arabians, exciting competitions, and a shopping expo.
“We’re thrilled to invite unique, beautiful horses from all over the world to join us in Scottsdale for the 69th year,” said Melissa Schalles, executive director of the AHAA. “If you’re curious about Arabians or know nothing about them, this is the perfect show for you – there’s something for everyone here.”
The 2024 show will feature over 2,100 horses who will compete for more than $3 million in prize money. Event goers can look forward to a huge variety of classes where Arabians will show their versatility, beauty, and grace.
The immersive experience will return this year, giving attendees a hands-on experience to learn, touch and ride, hosted by HoofbeatZ USA, a Phoenix-based organization. The interactive experience, included in the event ticket, introduces newcomers to the world of horses and all the benefits they offer.
Along with the engaging performances, event attendees will have the opportunity to see exhibits featuring fine art, crafts, clothing, and jewelry in the Shopping Expo adjacent to the main arena. More than 300 artisans and entrepreneurs are expected to sell unique goods and offer a wide variety of products and services.
The AHAA will also be celebrating the third annual National Arabian Horse Day on Feb. 19 with special events and activities at the show.
The 11-day show will start at 8 a.m. each day at WestWorld of Scottsdale, 16601 N. Pima Road.
