TULSA, OK -- Horses of all sizes and colors are in Tulsa for the Pinto World Championship Horse Show.

More than 2,000 exhibitors from all 50 states and Canada are in town for the 12-day competition out at Expo Square.

It's free to watch horses and their riders strut their stuff. Organizers tell us there's always something new to see.

"Sometimes they'll be leading the horses, sometimes they'll be riding an English, sometimes they'll be driving behind a cart, or leading them over obstacles, jumping," said Meriruth Cohenour, Pinto Horse Association.

There's also barrel racing, roping, and cutting.

The Pinto Horse Association will sign a new contract Wednesday that will keep the competition here for another five years.  It's been coming to Tulsa for the past 21 years.
