You are invited back to PRIME TIME, at 6 p.m. on Friday, November 13th, when some of the most talented 3-year-old American Quarter Horses demonstrate their versatility at the Pleasure Versatility Challenge, brought to you by Terry Bradshaw Quarter Horses, during the 2020 Lucas Oil AQHA World Championship Show at OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. Total purse for the 2019 event was $50,000 and all expectations are to achieve that number again in 2020.
Horses competing during the Pleasure Versatility Challenge are shown sequentially in three classes in the Jim Norick Arena: a pattern class consisting of a blending of simplified Trail and Western Riding maneuvers, which counts 40 percent; a Western Pleasure class, which counts 40 percent; and a conformation class, which counts 20 percent.
Eligibility and all other rules remain the same in 2020 as they were for the previous year’s event. Horses cannot have been shown astride in any Western Riding, Trail or in any similar Pleasure Versatility Challenge event prior to the Lucas Oil World official entry deadline of September 15th.
Beginning on the official Lucas Oil World entry deadline, and thereafter, horses can be shown without restriction at any competition, including the All American Quarter Horse Congress, without forfeiting PVC eligibility. There are no eligibility restrictions for the Western Pleasure or conformation classes. Money earned at the PVC does not accrue against AQHA Leveling eligibilities.
