Horse Show Capital

Oklahoma City is unique for many different reasons. You can whitewater raft in downtown, our city was founded in a day and the parking meter was invented here, just to name a few.

On that note, you may be surprised to learn that we are considered the “Horse Show Capital of the World,” hosting more national and international equine championships than any place on the globe. Horse shows are a great way to see lots of action at an affordable price (many don’t charge admission).

In a single year, OKC hosts more than a dozen horse shows with an economic impact of $126.5 million. For horse riders and admirers alike, there’s no better place for the equestrian aficionado than OKC.

Free in OKC

45th Infantry Division Museum

Here at Better Life HQ, we love to brag about Oklahoma City’s low cost of living. When your dollar stretches just a little bit further it is much easier to stop to smell the roses (or buy Thunder tickets). However, that doesn’t mean we are opposed to saving a few bucks when we can. The good news is that in OKC there is plenty to do for the low, low price of free. Below are some of our favorite things to do for free in OKC:

  • Horse Shows at State Fair Park Arena
    Oklahoma City is home to more national and international equine championship events than any other city in the world and most don’t charge admission. You have the chance to experience two very different shows in October, with the Grand National Morgan Horse Show and the US Team Roping Championships.
  • The 45th Infantry Division Museum
    Dedicated to the military history of Oklahoma and the 45th Infantry Division, this museum is a must for any history buff. It includes the country’s third-largest collection of historic U.S. military firearms and the world’s largest collection of items once owned by Adolf Hitler. Donations are accepted and appreciated.
  • Oklahoma City Outdoor Symbolic Memorial
    The memorial honors the victims, survivors, rescuers and all who were changed forever by the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

December in OKC


It is a new month, and that means another great video from our friends at the Convention and Visitors Bureau highlighting all there is to do in the 4-0-5 this month. Check out the link for information on the Nutcracker, NRHA Futurity Show, Red Earth Tree Festival and more. These videos are great to share with out of town family and friends to let them know all the fun they are missing in OKC.
