October 2017

Colorful tassels swing, shining manes and tails toss, and polished hooves flash as some of the most beautiful horses in the world enter Tulsa Expo Square for the 2017 U.S. National Arabian & Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show. These horses, their trainers and riders are competing as some of the best trained, most athletic, or most perfect examples of a breed already renowned for its beauty, strength, and endurance. The show lasts nine days (Oct. 20-28) and competitions include riding, rodeo-style events, halter, and even costume and sidesaddle events.
