There’s some good news for Tulsa's economy. The Arabian Horse Association announced Friday it's renewing its contract for another five years with the Tulsa Expo Square.

The AHA comes to Tulsa every year for the Arabian and Half Arabian U.S. National Championship.

Tulsa makes about $30 million off the event each year.

“I'm just tickled to death that we got them for another five years,” Tulsa County Commissioner Karen Keith said. “This business is really a lot of relationships. I'm just so grateful. These are people, when I know they are coming, I just can't wait to have dinner and check up on them.”

The contract extension runs through 2022.
