With more than a 62-year history, the AHA Canadian National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Show is one of the longest standing shows within the Arabian Horse Association, providing classes across many disciplines. It is an important show for the Arabian industry and is one of the legs of the Arabian Triple Crown, and after financial and participation challenges resulting from the pandemic forced the board to postpone it, AHA is thrilled to bring it back. The decision followed a thorough process, including the formation of a dedicated Task Force immediately following the Board of Directors’ late-July decision to cancel the 2022 show.
The AHA’s Canadian National Show Commission has made tremendous efforts to bring the show back to the AHA membership, effectively creating a new and viable plan to promote the show’s longevity. AHA recognizes that the AHA membership has been without an AHA sanctioned Canadian National show previously and has worked diligently to bring back the Canadian National Show in 2023.
