Come watch 1,500 of the country’s best quarter horse compete for $200,000 in prizes at the annual Arizona Sun Circuit Quarter Horse Show. Horses and riders come from around the world to ride and to compete on this eight day, five ring event. There is something to see for everyone and there is no admission to come and watch the show!
While here, shop over 100 vendors featuring southwestern furniture, show and regular clothing, jewelry, and of course, horse items of all kids. If you get hungry while watching the show, we have food vendors that can satisfy any craving. Come and see why the Quarter Horse is called “America’s Horse.”
Last year (March, 2017) One word summarizes the March Arizona Sun Country Circuit: More.
The show had more entries than ever in its 44-year history with nearly 18,500 AQHA class entries and 21,479 over all entries. More classes, more horses, more sunshine, more arenas and more prizes resulted in more points, more smiles, and more happy exhibitors. Once again, Arizona Quarter Horse Association has managed to take a wildly successful show and make it even better. The quality of the competition was outstanding, and the atmosphere exuded fun.
The show enjoyed the kind of March weather the City of Scottsdale brags about in glossy magazine ads with picture-perfect blue skies and technicolor sunsets. The continued expansion of the outstanding West World Equestrian complex offered new venues for exhibitors. Sun Circuit used two brand new, climate controlled arenas in the North Hall of the Equidome. An adjacent warm up pen was very convenient and made the perfect staging area. Exhibitors, judges and staff alike loved the North Hall. AzQHA CEO Doug Huls was very excited about the additional facilities and was already looking toward the future commenting, “between the North Hall and the main Equidome, we will be able to offer most all of our classes indoors at the AZ Fall Championship this September.”
