Palomino Horse Breeders of America Announces
PHBA WORLD SHOW FINDS A NEW HOME
Tulsa, Oklahoma - May 24, 2012 - After nearly three decades in Tulsa, Oklahoma the 2013 PHBA World Show is moving to the Tunica Arena and Expo Center in Tunica, Mississippi.
PHBA has always been able to count on the same show dates for the world show until the last two years. With the contract expiring in 2012, show dates for 2013 moved into the second week of August.
The Executive Board felt with schools starting August 1 across the country, this date change would be extremely detrimental for the show. The continued change of dates is not good for the success of the world show.
The dates for the next three Palomino World Championship Horse Show
2013 July 10-21
2014 July 9-20
2015 July 8-19
These dates also will have a two day move in for the convenience of the exhibitor's.
