TWHBEA World Versatility Show

TWHBEA World Versatility Show

The TWHBEA World Versatility Show debuted in 1998 as the TWHBEA Versatility Show. The event was developed to offer participants in the TWHBEA Versatility Program the opportunity to compete against peers from all over the country in a championship setting. For many competitors, the World Show is the event at which they reap the benefits of a year’s hard work. The show offers triple versatility points as well as an ample prize list. Generous prizes are also awarded to the adult, youth 11 & under, youth 12-17, first year exhibitor,novice highpoint and reserve highpoint winners.

The TWHBEA World Versatility Show (the only triple point show) features a complete schedule of point earning versatility classes. The schedule includes Showmanship, Model, Equitation, Stock Seat Equitation, Dressage, Western Dressage, Hunter Hack, Trail Obstacle, TWH Over Fences, Obstacle Driving, Pleasure Driving, Western Riding, Basic Reining, Water Glass, Barrels, and Poles. Points earned in these classes count towards end of the year highpoint honors and Superior or Supreme Versatility Championships.

Since its inception, the TWHBEA World Versatility Show has experienced steady growth with entries increasing by approximately 50 each year. In 2004, due to the high level of entries, the show had to be expanded to a two-day event. In 2007, the show was expanded to a 3 day event to include rail classes as well.

TWHBEA also sponsors a number of regional versatility shows throughout the country. These shows offer the same classes as the World Versatility Show and operate under the TWHBEA Versatility Rulebook. Exhibitors at these shows earn points towards end of the year high point honors and Supreme or Superior Versatility Championships. The shows are coordinated through the TWHBEA Pleasure Horse program. They offer an excellent opportunity for Versatility Program participants to earn points in their own backyard.
