41st Annual Carousel Charity Horse Show

SCOTTSDALE – The American Saddlebred Association of Arizona invites you to join us for the 41st Annual Carousel Charity Horse Show. The Southwest’s Premier Multi-Breed Show is March 15 – 18th at West World in Scottsdale.

Come enjoy the beautiful Saddlebreds, Morgans, Andalusians, Arabians and Tennessee Walkers. See the most magnificent of show horses and the tiniest of tots just starting their show careers. Enjoy a relaxed environment, good food, many vendors, the silent auction and raffle. On Saturday meet Indy race car driver Robby Unser and the kids can pet the ponies.

This year Carousel Celebrates the American Spirit. One of our charities, The Horse Rhythm Foundation uses horses to rehabilitate veterans and first responders who have suffered physical or psychological trauma in the line of duty. Our other charity is Arizona Helping Hands. This charity provides goods and services to those most in need in our community.
Performances are Thursday – Saturday at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Sunday at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Be sure to follow the Carousel Horse Show signs and park on the west side of the horse complex.

The events and parking are free, but we encourage you to support our charities with a cash donation or by bringing a new book for Arizona Helping Hands. The American Saddlebred Association of Arizona is a 501(c)3 organization. Visit See you there!
