ALL classes should count for Select All Around !!! If not offered as a Select separate class, at least count our entry into the Amatuer class. I think We are very limited on what classes we can choose from, it's not going to add any more "time" to the shows if you would just please count all of our classes we enter.
I recommend AQHA limit the number of circuits in each state to encourage exhibitors to attend weekend shows. I realize many exhibitors love the circuits. Trainers only have to set up once. But these are killing the small shows. Looking at AQHA shows in Indiana and Kentucky I noticed something sad. Adding all the shows March through July Indiana has 27 AQHA shows. Of these all but 3 were split combined, many are circuits. ...more »
We need an e-sign authorization form for AQHA to retrieve dna results from the jockey club
It would be nice to be able to check on foal registration status so we can prepare to put foal up for sale
This site is now less useful than before the change in "look". It is no longer accepting votes on individual comments. (You can vote on the main idea, but not the comments below it). Searching is also not as efficient as before. Change is only good if it is an improvement. So far, the change in the website is not an improvement and we would be better off if it were put back as it was.
I believe that non-horse owners should be able to get involved and participate in AQHA. Although I don't have a horse of my own, I go and watch almost any AQHA event in my area and the congress each year. As soon as I get a horse, I plan on joining AQHA and showing in the HUS, eq, and showmanship. I think youth who aren't as lucky to own and show this amazing breed, should have the opportunity to still get involved in ...more »
Make a registry fo for people who have adopted a qh from a rescue and don't have previous owners contact info. Or can send in the adoption paperwork and or brand inspection paperwork to register that animal. Insted of basicly saying oh well you don't have the owners signiture can't register with us then.
As a breeder, it seems to me I get to make decisions about the colts I have and which of them may be good enough quality to be allowed to keep their breeding ability. For some reason, I do not have that same ability with the fillies I produce. Would it not stand to reason that if I get to decide if a colt is good enough to reproduce, that I should also be able to decide the same for a filly? In that vein, why could ...more »
I suggest that AQHA provide proof of license on the genetic tests they are demanding we do, and accept tests from other labs that were done before the new rule took affect. I have asked AQHA for license but have been told no every time. We members have a right to know when AQHA got license to provide tests you demand your members do.
I have tested both my stallions & mares at considerable expense with all being negative. I understand from UC Davis that my offspring will all be negative as none of the diseases are carried thru with negative parents. Thus why not list this on the papers. Why spend money on the future offspring for tests not needed. Results should be listed on Registration papers!
AQHA has got to start doing something regarding the cruelty being dealt out to our beautiful horses from the horribly abusive trainers, especially the repeat ones that just continually do it, year after year after year. You just can't continue to suspend them for one year, fine them, then allow them back in. If the executive committee doesn't know this, AQHA has become the laughingstock of the horse show WORLD!!! WE are ...more »
A lot of members funds are wasted sending out useless letters when an email would be quicker & more cost effective, as well as allowing a response to be directed back to the person handling the paperwork/issue.
The AQHA need to get n the 21st century & use the tools available.
