2023 Sun Circuit Smashed Records….Again

The 50th Anniversary Sun Circuit sure didn’t disappoint! It was our largest show ever with AQHA entries up nearly 20% over last year and saw NSBA entries grow by 42%. The NRCHA portion of the show was like its own world with record obliterating numbers of runs.

Long a favorite of veteran exhibitors and a Bucket List show for hundreds more, Sun Circuit blew away expectations. Class sizes were large, awards were prolific, payouts were lucrative, events were memorable and the fun was infectious.

The show went all in on awards. There were 36 saddles, Rod Patrick boots, saddle pads, trophies and gift certificates from Woods, CR Ranch Wear and Cinch waiting for exhibitors in the Awards booth. But the true highlight was  twelve 50th Anniversary EZ Go golf carts parked in front of the Show Office that were awaiting to be awarded as high point  prizes on the last days.

Exhibitors also won thousands of dollars from the ARHFA Futurity, NSBA Futurities, $10,000 Snippity Snap 4 & 5 YO Trail, $7500 Added Nothin But Nett 5 and under Maiden Stakes Western Riding, $5,000 Farnam L1 Open Ranch Horse Stakes, Cow Horse spectaculars, Golden Cowboy competition and 2D jackpots.
