American Miniature Horse Association

What makes the AMHA World Show so spectacular?

Is it the over 200 classes that are offered to every age at varying skills?

Is it the 800 stalls filled with smallest and best Miniature equines the world has to offer?

Or is it the over 2000 entries that will witness the crowning of each World Champion? 

Whatever the reason you love Worlds and we are excited to welcome you to Texas and to the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth.

 

We hope you’ll come watch the show, September 24 thru October 1.  The classes run each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with evening performances added on Wednesday and the final Saturday.

 

The barns are open all day, every day so you can see the horses, talk to the exhibitors and visit the vendors who are set up inside and outside the arena. We hope you’ll come and soak up this spectacular Miniature event.  You will see the smallest, most perfect horses in the World…there is nothing else like it! 

 

 And remember, if you can’t come in person watch the action live from http://www.iequine.com/events/2016/09/amha-world-championships where the show will be simulcast daily for your enjoyment!

AMHR Hardship                  14

AMHA is pleased to continue to accept Hardship horses from the AMHR – which means if your “R” horse measures 34 inches or less, he or she is eligible for AMHA registration through an inspection process.  Good news for Amateurs who are looking for show divisions that meet their experience level. AMHA also offers height level split classes for beginner all the way to expert and the new added division for Stock Type minis as well. Now more than ever, AMHA has a class just for you!
