60th National Appaloosa Show Brings a Splash of Color to Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City, Okla.—More than 1,100 Appaloosas traveled to Oklahoma City to compete for prestigious titles in the 60th National Appaloosa Show and the World Championship Youth Show that began June 25 at the State Fair Park.

Despite highly unusual daily downpours, hundreds of exhibitors competed throughout the 13-day event in 209 classes; all of which allowed the participants and their horses to demonstrate the excellent disposition and versatility of the Appaloosa breed.

Exhibitors had the opportunity to compete in three different divisions—Youth, Non-Pro and Open—and earn points for themselves or their Appaloosas. Depending upon the class, exhibitors and their horses were judged on specific criteria including color, agility, conformation and ability.

Overall, the 60th National Appaloosa Show and the World Championship Youth Show had a combined number of 4,344 entries, a slight increase over last year’s total entries. Entries in overall Youth classes increased by 2.6 percent, while Open and Non-Pro entries were down 19 and 15 total entries, respectively.

Though the 60th National Appaloosa Show and the World Championship Youth Show just concluded July 7, exhibitors and their Appaloosas are already preparing for the esteemed World Championship Appaloosa Show that will take place Oct. 26-Nov. 3 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938, with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline, including racing, endurance riding or serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho; the heart of the Palouse region, the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
