The Arabian Working Western Alliance
Ranch Horse Challenge
The purpose of the Arabian Working Western Alliance (AWWA) Ranch Horse Challenge is to create a sense
of community and comradery in the Arabian Horse industry by providing opportunities & incentives for the
breeding, showing, and owning of traditional Western performance Arabian-bred horses.
The AWWA Ranch Horse Challenge is held each October at the AHA Arabian & HA/AA U.S. National Championship Show. There are two divisions: one for purebred Arabians and the other for Half-Arabian/Anglo-Arabians. These horses are of any age or bloodline. The AWWA Incentive Fund 4-year-olds compete concurrently in the Ranch Horse Challenge for awards and prize money set aside specifically for them. In 2024, there will be a jackpot for highest scoring amateurs.
