The 2023 Youth Art Contest has been sent out to our current email list. If you didn’t receive the letter and entry from, please send us an email at to be added to the email distro.

A few changes were made to the 2023 contest:

     ·   The 8.5”x11” mat size was hard to find, so we updated the finished size to be 11”x14” (5”x7” fits an 8”x10” mat, 8.5”x11” fits a 9”x12” or 11”x14” mat), we hope this makes completing the art work easier for everyone.

     ·   All submissions will now get two two-for-one passes for family and friends, along with the two one day passes for parents.

     ·   Ribbons will be paper during the display time at the show, actual ribbons will be given at the presentation on Sunday.

We look forward to all the art submissions this year and can’t wait to welcome all students, families, friends, teachers, etc. at the 2023 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show!!
