Horse Showing

AQHA Alternative Competition Program

I would love it if we could have an alternative competition program, like APHA's PAC program. This allows horses to earn alternative competition points when they are shown in smaller shows and shows that are not AQHA breed shows. Schooling shows, playdays, state shows, barrel racing and gymkhana shows, parades, 4-H shows, team pennings, ropings, horse trials, and other activities that fall outside the category of AQHA breed shows.


They would be recorded like points, but in a separate section, that way Quarter Horses that are still amazing performers, that perhaps are owned by people who can't afford the big shows, or prefer special competitions with their horses can still record their successes.
