2019-21 Adequan® Select World Shows Move to Fort Worth 

The American Quarter Horse Association, April 10, 2018 - The American Quarter Horse Association has named Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas, as the new location for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Adequan® Select World Championship Show. 

The tentative dates for the 2019 Adequan® Select World are August 21-31. The show's qualifying period is June 1, 2018, to May 31, 2019.

“AQHA is very grateful to the Tri-State Fairgrounds in Amarillo, and the hospitality that has been shown to AQHA and AQHA members since the inception of the Adequan® Select World in 2003,” said Pete Kyle, AQHA chief show officer.

 

“We are looking forward to building a relationship with the Will Rogers Memorial Center to provide a more centrally located facility and potentially expand the size of this event,” said Kyle.

AQHA and the Will Rogers Memorial Center have agreed to a three-year contract covering the 2019-21 Adequan® Select Worlds.

Established in Fort Worth in 1936, the Will Rogers Memorial Center attracts in excess of 2 million visitors each year to the cultural district. The 120-acre facility plays host to an extensive variety of cultural, corporate, educational and sporting events including many international-level equestrian and livestock shows.

The American Quarter Horse Association is concerned about the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, which went into effect on December 18, 2017. At that time, livestock haulers were granted a 90-day waiver to comply with the mandate, and that waiver will expire March 18, 2018. The rule limits the amount of time a commercial truck driver can drive and mandates a specific amount of off-duty/non-driving time, and requires the use of electronic logging devices to track the driving and non-driving times.  

AQHA is involved with requests to delay the impending Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) electronic logging device (ELD) mandate for one year.
