PHBA extends World Show entry deadlines. 1st entry deadline extended to August 10; 2nd entry deadline extended to August 24.

Additionally, the following policy will be in place for COVID-19: A credit will be given for the 2021 World Show for entry fees and stall fees paid, if your state prohibits travel to World Show or if you or someone in your household tests positive for Covid-19 on or after September 1st, 2020. Requests for credits MUST be accompanied by written proof: copy of Government order or letter from doctor with date of Covid-19 positive test.

The PHBA leadership is moving forward with the 2020 PHBA World Championship Show as planned in September. Should the show be canceled, dates change or a change in venue, due to COVID-19, refunds will be issued.
