The 2022 show saw the debut of the NSBA Heroes on Horses program at the show. Exhibitors attended boot camp with top trainers, a special dinner on Tuesday night, a special luncheon hosted by Chris Lagerblade on show day as well as the honored Parade of Heroes and finally the Western Pleasure.
The Prize Patrol was back with tens of thousands of dollars worth of electronics, products, and gift certificates from vendor sponsors. one of my most popular parts of the show is the chance to win for just playing in these fun games. Everything from trivia to dance competitions to races and Reining slide-offs, these fun events are part of what make up the magic of Sun Circuit.
Complete awards, payouts and scoresheets from the show can be found at SunCircuit.com, and all results are available on Horse Show Tracker.
Next year, Sun Circuit will be back in Scottsdale, AZ. March 4-12, 2023 for its 50th Year Celebration which is bound to be even more incredible.
