Host to six equestrian events, the American Royal brings many of the best horses and exhibitors to Kansas City and provides youth and adults the opportunity for scholarships, educational experiences, and competition.
The American Royal Association remains optimistic that, with the current measures that have been put in place, we will be able to host the 2020 American Royal season as planned. Unfortunately, the current climate has forced us to make a tough decision, and that is canceling our 2020 Quarter Horse Show. It was determined, with the AQHA Select World Championship Show lifting the need to qualify and allowing anyone to participate that weekend, our show would not have the participation numbers needed to be financially responsible. We wish all of the riders and trainers luck if they choose to travel to this show and understand, for some, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity. In the true spirit of agriculture, our resilient nature is looking forward to bringing the Quarter Horse Show back to the American Royal in 2021 and ask you to mark your calendars for September 2-5, 2021. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the American Royal Quarter Horse Show!
