Aljassimya Farm  invites up to 30 participants at AAC shows to the Arabian World Championships in Paris at the end of each show season. Each participant winner is accompanied by the guest of their choice.  The invited guests will be decided according to the the points they have won at any show throughout Europe that is participating in the Aljassimya Amateur Challenge.  Points may be won with multiple horses at one show.  Points won at Halter will only count towards the whichever Halter section they were won in (Novice, Amateur and Amateur Experienced) and will not count towards totals in Trail or Ridden classes, and vice versa.  Total points return to zero at the beginning of each year.
