Stock Show promises "Something New" for 2008

From increased entertainment and educational activities to a new world-class horse show, the 2008 National Western Stock Show promises to offer more enjoyment than ever before. The theme for this year's show is "Something New."

Perhaps the biggest new event at this, the 102nd anniversary National Western, will see the top ranch horses in the world compete for the title of world champion in the inaugural American Quarter Horse Association Fort Dodge Versatility Ranch Horse World Championship.
