Each year, APHA lists the Top 20 APHA shows based on the number of
entries per judge. However, there are many more great APHA shows to explore
nearby. This year begins the qualifying periods for exhibitors planning to
compete at the APHA World Championship Shows in 2012, making 2011 the perfect
year to attend shows near you. Horses must qualify for the World Shows by
participating in four different APHA shows in front of at least eight judges
during the qualifying period. To aid you in your search for local shows, check
out the following list of APHA member-recommended shows across the country.
