Show manager training

With people from around the USA attending the AQHA World Show not only to compete but many to watch I would attend the show management training class. Few years ago Sandy recommended that we start holding a small show, I would live to, but with all my horses I don't travel. But many do come to OKC in November.

Allow stallions in Level One competition

I qualify in all events in Level One competition as a rider, but can not complete in that division due to my sole horse is a stallion. I've owned stallions all my life and have stood multiple AQHA and APHA stallions. I could understand the reasoning behind a "beginner" riding a stallion. However being a beginner level at showing does not equate to a beginner rider or horseman. Maybe a way around that to verify the rider ...more »

Amatuer Level 3 at World Shows

Why can't we enter same Level 3 class at World Shows. I was told it's because they don't want someone to win both shows. If that's the case at least give those of us that didn't win a second chance !!! If you win at Select, you may not enter Lucas, That's Not hard to track & I don't think anyone would dishonestly enter Lucas, only to be Dq'd. There would be more entries, it's Too Expensive to travel to World Shows for ...more »

Story Ideas

Who has the oldest living registered American Quarter horse?

With all the new products and feeds on the market these days horses are living longer healthier lives. AQHA should honor these horses and their owners. I would suggest a contest or do an article on the oldest registered still living horse and find out the secrete to their longevity. Possibly offer as a prize a years supply of the supplements and feed that led to the graceful aging of that particular horse.

Amateur vs Amateur Select

Wanting go see if there' any way to stop my Amateur entry from being turned in as Amateur Select. I do not enter the Select class & highlight on the entry form NO SELECT, but because of my birthdate, my class results are being submitted to AQHA as Select. I've been told there's nothing I could do to request a correction because results are signed & submitted. Missing year end opportunities because points are not being ...more »

Horse Showing

Horseback Riding program mobile app

Make a mobile app for the horseback riding progeam rather than logging into the AQHA site. You could then add an option to store or add hours to your log when you get back into wifi or 4g range. Alot of trail riders already use map programs linked to their phones/mobile devices on the trail, this would just add to their trail fun at tbe end of the ride.

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 »

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 »
