Equestrian events are continuing to hit their stride and generate significant economic impact for Hillsborough County!  

More than 2,000 fans and competitors came out to experience the 39th Annual Arabian Horse Association of Florida’s Thanksgiving Arabian Show/Regional Championship Horse Show.  The event produced nearly 1,900 hotel room nights creating $1.1 Million in Estimated Delegate Spending.  The history of the Arabian Horse Association of Florida dates back to the early 1950's when a group in south Florida who loved the Arabian horse banded together to plan the future of the Arab in the state.  

The primary purposes of the Florida Association are to promote Arabian horses in the state, maintain the annual high point awards and futurity programs, and to encourage shows throughout the state.
