Qualifying period for the 2023 NSBA World Championship Show is May 1, 2022 through April 30, 2023.

Qualifying is done through participation in each class at Dual Approved events or Special Events. In the Open classes, the horse, and in the Amateur and Youth classes, the horse and rider, will be required to participate in the corresponding Dual Approved class a minimum of 5 times within the qualifying period of May 1, 2022 through April 30, 2023 for the 2023 NSBA World Championship Show & Breeders Championship Futurity. Those who are not qualified may enter with an additional $150 qualification fee per class.

Please note that horses and riders who qualify, and are registered with one of NSBA's recognized Color Breed Associations, may show in both the Color and the All Breed classes, for which they are qualified. For instance, a registered APHA horse and rider who qualify in Amateur Western Pleasure can show in Color Amateur Western Pleasure or Amateur Western Pleasure.  In addition, amateurs who are select riders, qualify in the Amateur division, and may show in either the Amateur or the Select class, but not both. Exhibitors who become amateurs in 2023 must qualify by competing in amateur classes; youth classes from the prior year do not count towards the amateur qualification. Limited rider classes in Trail and Western Riding require qualification. Participation on horses that age from the Junior to Senior divisions in 2023 will count towards the Senior division qualification.
