Horse Show Locator App

Create an app that allows you to enter a class (like Rookie Trail), a zip code and a date range. Display horse shows offering that class within a 200 mile radius. A bonus would be to show the numbers if the show offered that class last year.

Encourage Breeding for Sustainability

Hi Saw two articles. http://www.equinestudies.org/ranger_2008/ranger_piece_2008_pdf1.pdf http://www.thehorse.com/articles/37011/is-sustainability-a-heritable-trait-in-thoroughbreds When AQHA is looking at a rule, I would like them to include a paragraph about how this rule impacts sustainability. Not sure of the outcome, yet I remember someone mentioning collecting from an active running barrel mare, they could only ...more »

AQHA HBR App

To log the hours of the Horseback riding program is some kind of laborious. If you want to log hours online on the smartphone it's so impractical that I resigned to do it. I do it online on the PC. It's a little bit easier now with the new AQHA page and the login but it would be even more easier with a special app for the smart phone.

Suggestion for new mobile aqha.com

I find the mobile version of AQHA.Com hard to use. I like using the full site, even on my phone, so I have access to areas I need when I am secretary for a show. Also, There is no "showing" page to access.

Please rework the main page to headings same as Web page.

Need to get info on forms and opening a show to verify a horse's name or number or verify owner/ROM.

Thank you. (The sooner the better!)

More Shows

Where I live there aren't hardly any AQHA shows and if there is one they are way to far out of our price range for shows. AQHA should give more smaller show options at a lower cost. With this they would have more people compete especially if they show at the levels i do and that don't have millions to pay for a show.

Others a chance

For things like the Youth World Cup I don't think you should have to have points in order to apply. Because im a AQHYA member but i do not show in any AQHA shows but still would like the chance to apply for the chance to be picked for something like the Youth World Cup but since i do not show in any AQHA shows me and probably many others cannot apply for the chance to be picked.

AQHA World Show Level 1 Western Pleasure Stakes Class

Level 1 Western Pleasure Stakes Class Champioins should also be able to receive Champion Jackets also or a different leather jacket for their accomplishment. Also they should be recognized in the AQHA journal with their picture along with the other winners. I feel if the class is offered at the world show they should be treated equally. When you travel far and and have the opportunity to show at such a world class show ...more »

Wrangler NFR TV Graphics

AQHA should "sponsor" or ask for added value from the PRCA to include AQHA branded television graphics on every horse in the Wrangler NFR to include the horse's registered name, barn name, color, gender, age dam and sire on screen as the horse prepares to perform in the arena. This would increase AQHA TV visibility and importance of the horse in the sport of rodeo.

Horse show scoring forms

Please, please replace the score sheets currently available on the show forms link with the new VERY scribe friendly forms that were used at the world show!!! The new world show sheets provided a box for cumulative totals during the run. The past sheets for ranch riding were virtually unusable although pretty

Rookie Division

I believe AQHA needs to make changes to the Rookie Division in order to make it easier for new exhibitors to qualify, My thought was that the point limit should be raised to 40 points. I do not think that a horse with a Superior should be in this class. Also, any horse with a WC or reserve WC should not be in this class. What do other people think? I also think the division names need to be changed. It gets very ...more »

Find A Trainer Map

You know how you can do a hotel search and select the "map" option, so you can look at the hotels geographically? Could AQHA take the same idea and revamp that "Find A Trainer" link? It would be awesome to pull up a map and see dots where all the trainers are located, hover over the dot and the trainer's contact information pops up. This need became apparent when I moved to another part of the country. I know the surrounding ...more »

Green Hunter Under Saddle at the World

Two year olds should not be allowed to show in the Green Hunter Under saddle at the World. AQHA should have a two year old hunter under saddle class for the 2yr olds just like they do for the western horses. The Green HUS should be for the horses who have shown in that class and qualified with a set number of points.

In Hand Trail for All Ages

In Hand Trail for those who may not want to ride their horse or can't ride but enjoy showing in hand classes ( Halter,Showmanship) will give them another class to compete in. In hand Trail has become one of the Favorite classes at many Open Horse Shows that I have taken my mare to and even got the class started at three Open Show Circuits in NC. The way this class goes is that you go through the trail course walking or ...more »

World Show All Around and Super Horse

Since the rule change regarding 2 versus 3 categories to qualify for the Farnam All Around and Super Horse, this year there are only 12 Amateurs vying for $25K and 24 in the Super horse competition. Last year, there were 60 Amateurs in the all around competition. Does this 80% drop in contenders indicate that the QH has become a more specialized breed or that the World Show represents the best competitors and to be ...more »

AQHA home page: ditch the box!

Please eliminate the annoying redirect on the AQHA home page when a visitor tries to close the log-in box. So many visitors to the website are NOT members, and only become frustrated by the insistence on creating an account. We don't need visitors to jump through hoops! And for members? I don't create an account to view any other association's website--why should I have to for my own? Place the account appeal in a sidebar ...more »

Western Pleasure gait

I support the efforts of Carol Harris and others to restore a natural gait to the Western Pleasure horse. This issue is hurting the entire industry. I propose that judging credentials be lifted if judges fail to follow standards after one warning. Horses that don't offer a natural gait at a lope should be disqualified, and if no horse in a class meets standards, there should be no winner. AQHA simply MUST be more proactive ...more »

Level 1 Championship dates for 2017

Please consider moving the 2017 Level 1 Championship show to a date later in the year. It is very difficult for exhibitors in the northern states to have a horse in show condition in April and early May. Many don't keep a horse at an indoor and are unable to ride or have a horse in condition until warmer weather. The early show also conflicts with finals week at many schools, so many youth exhibitors will find it difficult ...more »
