The Arabian Horse Association (AHA) recently announced that the 2015 to 2016 contract for their Arabian & Half-Arabian Canadian National Horse Show has been extended through 2017 at the Keystone Centre in Brandon, MB. This extension will allow the show to hold its 60th Anniversary at the facility.
2016 will be the sixth year the Keystone Centre has hosted Canadian Nationals, currently the largest show held at the facility. “The Canadian National Show Commission is pleased to have the current contract in Brandon extended to 2017,” says AHA’s Canadian National Show Commission Chair Gerald McDonald. “We will continue to work with the Keystone facility to secure funding for a new Field House building that has been planned for the past several years. This building will greatly improve the availability for more indoor stalls and an additional indoor work ring.”
The City of Brandon welcomes the horse show each year with open arms. Visitors come from as far as Winnipeg to meet the Arabian horses, participate in tours, and watch the show.
Be sure to join AHA for the 59th Annual Arabian & Half-Arabian Canadian National Horse Show at the Keystone Centre, August 14-20, 2016. Remember to wear red on Friday, August 19 for Armed Forces Day at Canadian Nationals, in honour of the service of Canadian and US troops.
