The 62nd Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is an Arizona staple. Scottsdale local, Anne McCormick, devoted 150 acres of the northern part of her ranch as an equestrian center devoted to Arabian horses, and called it Paradise Park. The Arabian Horse Association of Arizona held their annual show at Paradise Park from 1956 (its second year) through 1968, when it was moved to WestWorld. The Arizona Arabian Horse Show was the first of its kind dedicated to Arabian horses.
The event has grown from 50 horses in 1955, to now nearly 2,400 horses compete for a winning title. The event has evolved to include several family friendly events, including behind the scenes barn tours, pony rides, and a petting zoo.
