The Pinto Horse Association is planning the largest gathering of Pintos for the 52nd annual Pinto World Championship show June 12-24, at the Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The 13-day show hosts equines and exhibitors from around the globe. Exhibitors will compete for world titles, rosette ribbons, belt buckles and many more awards. The PWC hosts an array of equines from: stock type horses to miniatures; there is a class for just about any equine.

“The Pinto World Championships is a great horse show filled with exciting events and talented equines,” said Darrell Bilke, PtHA Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “I look forward to see great competition and everyone have fun at our special events.”

The PWC is a great event to bring family members and friends. The show is free to attend and will be filled with special events to keep spectators and exhibitors entertained.

Those who love to shop will have an opportunity to check out merchandise from more than 40 vendors at the PWC Market Place. Vendors from all across the country will be selling merchandise such as clothing, home décor and equine products.

In addition to the competition and shopping, several special events will occur at the show. The Costume Class, Dog Show, Challenged Rider’s Leadline and Versatility Showcases are always fun to attend. Also be sure to attend the PWC Welcome Party and Ice Cream Social with family and friends.
