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 »

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 »

Removing grade as a transfer option

When sending a previous owner transfer papers to sign, they can say that they sold the horse grade so that they do not have to transfer the horse. The papers should go with the horse. That is not fair to the horse or the new owner that they cannot have paper that are rightfully theirs. This is all so that breeders don't have their name tied to a horse. If the option was taken away then breeders would be more selective ...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.

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 »
