Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) Partnership with AQHA

Has AQHA ever considered partnering with the Thoroughbred Incentive Program (TIP) for their hunter classes and such? With as many TB mares that go on to produce quality Appendix foals out there, it would seem to me that AQHA would want to get on board with making the TB a featured breed right alongside the QH. It would help to offer more recognition of the TB mares that went on to do well in the TIP Program and then for ...more »

Change qualifying for Select World to a format like Level 1.

I would like to see a change in qualifying for select world which would allow more Select Amateur riders to consider the trip to Select World. Many riders qualify under the current system in only 1 class - it is just too far and expensive to travel to a show for just one class. I like the Level 1 system - if you qualify in one class, you have the option to enter any classes you want when you go to the show. I believe ...more »

Prohibit Cross Entering Between Select Amateur and Amateur

This is likely a Rule Proposal that needs written up but i'll post it here for feedback. It is noted that you are not able to show at the Select World Show and the Amateur/Open World Show. You have to choose one or the other if you qualify for both. Also, you are unable to show the Level 1 Select Amateur and the Level 1 Amateur Class at the Level 1 Championships With that being said I think it reasonable that there ...more »

Mandatory Class Leveling

It would be nice to have a format in which exhibitors were not dependent on show committees to offer specific levels in classes. It is unfair for those showing in lower or entry levels to be lumped into a category they would not compete in simply because most shows choose not to offer leveling in a particular class versus another - or at all. When a show you are competing at does not offer leveling you are automatically ...more »

Please add more ranch classes to AQHA shows

Please consider adding Ranch Rail Pleasure and Ranch Halter classes to AQHA shows. I've really enjoyed these classes an non-AQHA shows, and I think they would make a valuable addition to the AQHA show sheet. They would also make it possible to have a Ranch Division Champion/High Point. I understand that it would really be adding 8 classes, not just 2 (Open, Amateur, Novice Amateur, Youth), but I think it would really ...more »

United States Eventing Association as an AQHA Alliance Partner

The AQHA has recognized the United States Dressage Federation for dressage several years ago. The AQHA should do the same with the United States Eventing Association for three day eventing. This would enable the USEA to provide AQHA with points and/or money earnings on American Quarter Horses competing in eventing.

schedule shows with exhibitor in mind

We would like to show both at the silver dollar and the Arizona sun circuit but they obviously do not keep the exhibitors in mind when scheduling. My daughter is a youth how will she show both shows? We are from Oregon so were they thinking exhibitors would go home in between?? She shows in Vegas feb 24-27 , and then March 8 -12 in arizona. Do they not think of the exhibitors? You would think if they would like larger ...more »

For the good of the horse

Wouldn't it be great if AQHA subsidized classes that are aimed at teaching people how to provide additional care in the way of massage therapy, first aid, improved mental well being, etc. to their equine athlete? I think all of our horses would thank us for having this additional knowledge and would help keep our quarter horses happy and sound. Currently, a massage therapy course is around $700.00. This service could ...more »

5 Panel Results available in Records Search

I think it would be great if while we were looking up records we have access to see if a horse has been 5 panel tested.

World show

Reduce the judges to 4 and drop the low score. It will save time, money and we can keep our high scores! The winner will be the highest score instead of an average.
