Since 1955 the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has set the pace in the Arabian horse world. The first show was held at the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show was a first class show from the very first day.
After the show’s beginnings at the Arizona Biltmore, Ann McCormick bought 150 acres in Scottsdale and made it into the horse facility known as Paradise Park which served the needs of the show for many years.
Since that time, the show has been held at Westworld in Scottsdale. It has grown from 50 horses to nearly 2400 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world competing for a chance at winning. A win at Scottsdale can mean big money in the breeding barns.
The 2019 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is proud to benefit the following charities: Arabian Hosemans Distress Fund, ASU Western Equestrian Team, SCC Equine Sciences Scholarships and March of Dimes.
Each year the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show attracts thousands of visitors who will watch over 2,000 Arabian and Half-Arabian horses vie for prize money in various classes of competition. If you are an Arabian horse owner, a horse rider, or just a horse lover, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is a one-of-a-kind event that should not be missed.
When you aren’t watching the horses and riders, you can enjoy the more than 300 vendors and exhibitors on the trade show floor. If it’s a horse item you want, you’re sure to find it here!
