The Arizona Quarter Horse Association (AzQHA) welcomes competitors and spectators from around the nation to enjoy horses and the cowboy lifestyle.

CAVE CREEK, AZ, USA, February 28, 2023 / — The Arizona Sun Circuit celebrates its 50th anniversary March 4-12 at Westworld of Scottsdale. Sun Circuit is AQHA’s largest circuit show in the west and provides a can’t-miss atmosphere of fun and excitement for competitors. Adding to the inherent draw of the show itself, Arizona’s sunny disposition beckons people from around the nation with a promise of a winter reprieve.

The AzQHA invites everyone to come out and see what the horse lifestyle has to offer. Families and horse-interested visitors of all ages will discover the welcoming atmosphere, enjoy shopping, and get the chance to learn through the free educational clinics offered at the show.

“Sun Circuit paves the way, having more than doubled in size since changing dates from January to March,” says Brian Dygert, past GM of Westworld of Scottsdale and founder of Cowboy Office.

The continued popularity of Sun Circuit is attributed to the focus of being an event where people have fun and see a vast array of classes running simultaneously. As CEO Doug Huls says, “We’re blessed with Westworld, because there’s so many arenas and so many things that can happen there at the same time. We may be the only horse show left in the country where we have the ropers and the cow horses, and the reiners, and the pleasure horses and trail horses, and western riding… and I’m adamant that it stays that way.”

They also have plenty to offer spectators and local residents who want to get a taste of the western lifestyle.
