SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The largest event of its kind in the world, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is held at WestWorld and attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators.

In addition to exciting competitions, gala parties, educational seminars and an international cuisine court, the event features more than 300 vendor booths, offering everything from lavish jewelry, clothing and works of art.

3TV's April Warnecke gave us a preview.

It has grown from 50 horses to nearly 2400 horses bringing top owners, trainers and breeders from around the world competing for a chance at winning. A win at Scottsdale can mean big money in the breeding barns.

The 2014 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is proud to benefit Cox Charities and March of Dimes.

The 59th Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show started Thursday and runs through Feb. 10 at WestWorld of Scottsdale.
