Campaign: AQHA Membership

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?

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 »

Support and promote state and regional associations

It would be great if AQHA could add a web page with all of the state and regional quarter horse associations information including the various association websites. This would really help the volunteer run associations their information out. Also, what about once a year having a page or two of photos from state/regional association award banquets showing off what kinds of prizes are given out. This would also encourage ...more »

AQHA journal -- provide lifetime award definitions/details

Suggestion -- It would be nice if The Journal provided the details on what it takes to earn the various lifetime awards, such as performance champion versus AQHA champion, etc. (example AQHA Open Champion - min of 15 halter points, # number of performance points in 2 categories or whatever it is, as I can't ever remember). I love seeing what different horses and riders have earned each month, but find that I have to ...more »

Recognizing the Quarter Horse in Endurance

While AQHA has a riding program recognizing hourly accomplishments, there is no program for horses in distance competitions. Many Quarter Horses are successfully competing in Competitive Trail, Limited Distance, and Endurance races. These horses are excellent representatives of what other talents the Quarter Horse possesses. There are a number of other breed organizations that acknowledge mileage achievements and I would ...more »

Level 1 Winners invited to show Level 2 at the World Show

I'd like to see class winners at the Level 1 Championship receive an automatic invite to the Level 2 championships at the World Show. (Rookie being the exception.) No need to qualify. Just an automatic invite if you win your class. I think this would be a nice perk and maybe entice more people to show at the Level 1 Championships.
