The 2017 AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), kicked off August 25 at the Tri-State Fairgrounds in Amarillo.
Exhibitors at the 2017 Adequan® Select World Championship Show have shined their boots and dusted off their hats for the first day of competition in Amarillo. Classes began at 9 a.m. at the Tri-State Fairgrounds with preliminaries in cutting.
