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.

In response to Mayor Lucas’ Eleventh Amended Order issued November 16, 2020 it has been decided to suspend the 2020 American Royal Arabian Show scheduled for December 5-6, 2020.  We look forward to bringing the Arabian Horse Show back to the American Royal in 2021.
