Celebrating Elegance: A Glance at the Rich History of the Arabian Horse Show in Scottsdale
Since 1955, the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has been setting the pace in the Arabian horse world, creating an indelible mark on the equestrian landscape. From its beginnings at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel grounds, this show has evolved into a first-class event that continues to captivate horse enthusiasts globally.
The inaugural show at the Arizona Biltmore was a spectacle of elegance, with the stunning backdrop of the hotel adding a touch of luxury to the event. From that very first day, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show established itself as a premier showcase for the Arabian breed.
Following its early success, Ann McCormick, recognizing the show's potential, acquired 150 acres in Scottsdale and transformed it into the renowned horse facility known as Paradise Park. This facility served as the perfect venue for the show for many years, further solidifying its position as a cornerstone in the Arabian horse world.
As time progressed, the show found its current home at WestWorld in Scottsdale. From its modest start with 50 horses, the event has blossomed into a colossal gathering of nearly 2400 horses. Top owners, trainers, and breeders from around the world converge at WestWorld, each competing for the coveted chance at victory.
A win at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show holds immense prestige, not only for the accolades but also for the potential financial rewards in the breeding barns. The show has become a global stage where the best of the best competes, making it a must-attend event for anyone passionate about the Arabian horse breed.
The Scottsdale Arabian horse show commences on February 15th! 10 magical days, taking over WestWorld and allowing the top breeders, owners, and trainers to show off their hard work. Bring the entire family to take part in this event. Spend the day watching the horse competitions, shopping for western wear, taking a barn tour, pony rides or grab a bit to eat from the international cuisine offerings. It’s not the show to miss.
