The 60th Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and Shopping Expo takes place at Westworld February 12 through 22.

Since 1955 the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has set the bar in the Arabian horse world. The show has had a few stately venues including the historic Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. After the show's beginnings at the Arizona Biltmore, it moved to a facility known as Paradise Park which served the needs of the show for many years.

Since that time the show has been held at Westworld in Scottsdale. It has grown from 50 horses to nearly 2,400 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world competing for a chance at winning. A win at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show can mean big money in the breeding barns and fans will marvel at the beauty and spectacle of these magnificent horses.
