Regarding the Region 18 Show

"I would like to thank the working group from the Region 18 show committee and the AHAEC Celebration Show committee for their expertise and dedication to creating a show for all of us. This effort has entailed countless hours of work and every member of these two organizations has gone above and beyond. I applaud them for their vision, their sacrifice and their commitment to the Arabian horse, to our Region and to the AHAEC Club.

I regret to inform you our Region 18 Championship show and the AHAEC Celebration show cannot happen in 2021. The entries received do not allow us to meet our financial obligations. We are grateful for those exhibitors who made the commitment to attend our shows – from as far away as Nova Scotia! If you e-transferred funds for your entries, please cancel your transaction. For those who used other means, your refunds will be processed quickly.

The circumstances with covid 19 have been overwhelming at times and have contributed to uncertainty. We understand that. Over 50% of Equestrian Canada licensed shows have been cancelled for lack of entries this year and as we all know, the CNE and the Royal are also suspended until 2022.

We now turn our focus to the 2022 shows. The construction at the Ancaster Fairgrounds will be complete by November 2021, which gives us an amazing facility for the future.

The show committee is already gearing up to make our return to the Ancaster Fairgrounds a huge success and look forward to your participation"


Come for an exciting week of Arabian horse competition, featuring qualifying classes for the Region 18 Championships and Region 18 Sport Horse, and a weekend of Championship classes for both Region 18 and Sport Horse. This also includes a Celebration Show by AHAEC.
