OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (11/14/12) - Felisha Ware of Providence, KY captured the first-place Intermediate title in amateur aged geldings at the 2012 Bank of America Amateur American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Championship Show on Wednesday, November 7 in Oklahoma City.
Ware showed her American Quarter Horse A Kid By Design, a 2005 sorrel gelding. A Kid By Design, sired by Image Of Kid and out of Design N Lace, was bred by Kent Miller of Jonesboro, GA.
The Intermediate awards program is designed to recognize exhibitors who have never placed in the top 10 at an AQHA world show in the particular class in which they are competing. Intermediate exhibitor status is based only on an exhibitor’s lifetime combined world show record, not on the number of points he/she has accumulated. Intermediate accomplishments will appear on the official records of the horse and exhibitor. Intermediate first place winners in each class receive an 8-inch clear globe in addition to a specially-designed patch that can be placed on a qualifiers jacket.
The AQHA World Show is the pinnacle event for American Quarter Horse owners and exhibitors around the world, who must qualify for the event by earning a predetermined number of points to compete in each of the classes representing Halter, English and Western disciplines. More than 3,590 entries from the United States, Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Mexico, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands are competing for 97 world championships at this year’s event, November 2-17 at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.
