In addition, White received a Top Ten Congress jacket and a Top Ten Congress silver belt buckle. Congress showcases some of the best horse and rider combinations in the world. The All American Quarter Horse Congress is the world’s largest single-breed horse show. The show receives more than 17,000 horse show entries during its 3-week schedule.
