New to Arabian?

Known for their stamina, spirit and exotic beauty, the Arabian Horse is truly one of the most exciting and versatile breeds of horse. The American Royal Arabian and Open Breed Horse Show features horses and riders competing in classes designed to showcase the versatility of this proud breed.

Classes offered include: Halter Classes, Youth Showmanship, Western Pleasure and Equitation, English and Country Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Liberty, Open Breed, and Academy Classes. Divisions include classes for youth and amateur riders as well as an open division for trainers to compete in.


At the American Royal, we are committed to providing a high-quality event experience for all of our constituents. At this time, we have decided to postpone the 2022 American Royal Arabian and Open Breed Horse Show and will look forward to welcoming you back to Kansas City in 2023.
