A number of generous patrons answered the recent call for sponsorships, so the IALHA 2020 National Championship Show is a go! * ***However due to Covid-19 the 2020 IALHA National Championships will not be held *** We thank our amazing members and sponsors that stepped up to the plate in 2020 and hope to see you all in 2021!
We look forward to again welcoming the nation’s most beautiful Andalusian and Lusitano horses to the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth Texas in November.
Whether it’s the allure of friendly competition, prize money, USEF/USDF points, the promise of seeing old friends, or the opportunity to make new ones, members will come together to take part in show-ring opportunities in every discipline.
The IALHA is also proud to announce the addition of several new classes to the staple Championship divisions for the 2020 National Championship Show making the it even more appealing to exhibitors.
This year, Open, Amateur and Youth classes in Reining, Working Cowhorse, Western Trail, Ranch Pleasure, and Performance Halter will be offered. In addition, a Supreme All Around Western Horse Award will be given to the high point horse in this new division.

Trophy buckles and headstalls will be awarded to first and second place in the Open classes, and the All Around Western Horse will earn a trophy saddle! Watch for information about all the details – rules, patterns, and payouts – coming soon.
