” Nearly $80,000 has been added to reining, cutting and working cow horse classes at the 2015 APHA World Championship Show. When added to the existing $50,000 Farnam Pleasure Stakes payouts and more than $500,000 in additional cash and prizes, there are more reasons than ever to saddle up for the world’s premier Paint Horse show.
Taking place November 4–14 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, the APHA World Show features the largest single gathering of Paint Horses competing in more than 275 classes during the 10-day show. The additional $77,000 in added money represents an investment by the association to help magnetize reining, cutting and cow horse exhibitors to the show, segments of the industry that represent areas of potential growth for APHA.
“We want to do for the cattle and reining events what our Farnam stakes program has done for young pleasure horses and our Breeders’ Futurity program has accomplished for the halter industry,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said. “
