The 49th annual event brings members of state horse associations from every region of the Natural State to town.
They will compete at Barton Coliseum/State Fairgrounds for the chance to be one of the top 10 in events that include: Walk Trot, Non Pro Western Pleasure, Buckaroo Barrels, and Barrel Pickup. Click here for more information.
The show begins this morning at 11:30 and runs through Monday.
Daily tickets are $8 for adults and children. Two-day tickets for Friday & Saturday only are $10. (Access to vendor booths is also included in ticket price).
A combination of horse maintenance costs, capital investment, and support costs makes this a $3.5 billion industry in Arkansas.
More than 1,800 horses and over 1,300 riders will compete.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Arkansas Children's Hospital.
