Great Rides: An AQHA World Show to Remember

At the 1983 AQHA World Championship Show, Paris Hughes became a legend aboard her trusty gelding, Mr Two Eyed Twist, when the pair won not one, not two but three world championship trophies in one day, barely coming in second for the All Around Amateur title at the show. And that was all while working without a trainer and attending college full time.

It was fun trotting down memory lane with Paris, who now competes in American Paint Horse Association shows lightly, as she’s been recovering from a back injury due to a horse riding accident. This article for the American Quarter Horse Journal was fun to do as Paris shared her memories of the early days of one of the largest horse shows in the country.
