Please add more ranch classes to AQHA shows

Please consider adding Ranch Rail Pleasure and Ranch Halter classes to AQHA shows. I've really enjoyed these classes an non-AQHA shows, and I think they would make a valuable addition to the AQHA show sheet. They would also make it possible to have a Ranch Division Champion/High Point. I understand that it would really be adding 8 classes, not just 2 (Open, Amateur, Novice Amateur, Youth), but I think it would really ...more »

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? We are from Oregon so were they thinking exhibitors would go home in between?? She shows in Vegas feb 24-27 , and then March 8 -12 in arizona. Do they not think of the exhibitors? You would think if they would like larger ...more »

World Show Schedules

I would like to see the Schedule changed each year at the World Shows, it would be nice if your speed events (example) are last one year, next year they could be first or middle just so the same classes aren't always the same days every year, it's hard to always have to get days off midweek, or then you always show wknds when motel rates are higher, I realize this might not be a big issue for a lot of people but on the ...more »

Achievement Awards

The AQHA should create an achievement award for a horse/rider combination that have earned 100 or more points in a single performance discipline. Other than year end awards, there is no incentive for horse/rider combinations to show in one discipline to keep showing after they earned a Superior (Event) Horse award.

Make score sheets meaningful for exhibitors

The check +/- system for scoring horsemanship, showmanship and equitation is not really very useful for judges or exhibitors, as it doesn't correlate to a score like trail or western riding. You can get similar marks from two different judges and have scores that vary from 73 to 93. One judge recently was telling me how difficult it was for them to use the system and to "not bother looking at the score sheets" as they ...more »

Rule breakers

Why is it when someone is breaking the rules it's so hard to get AQHA to do do anything? Turning someone in for accepting cash money for training yet showing youth seems to go no where. Even when you have multi letters sent sent in and signed by those who paid. But because it's cash taqha says they need a check as proof. I think written letters should be enough. Who is in charge ?? Everyone could just take cash and continue ...more »

AQHA Leaders List

Why are the Select Amateur riders listed under the Amateur Leaders AND the Select Amateur lists? I think that the only way a select rider should be listed in the Amateur Leaders List is if they show in the Amateur class, most of the Select riders listed only show in the Select classes and have never competed in the regular Amateur class. They should not get 2 chances for awards for only showing in one division.

Suggestion for new mobile aqha.com

I find the mobile version of AQHA.Com hard to use. I like using the full site, even on my phone, so I have access to areas I need when I am secretary for a show. Also, There is no "showing" page to access.

Please rework the main page to headings same as Web page.

Need to get info on forms and opening a show to verify a horse's name or number or verify owner/ROM.

Thank you. (The sooner the better!)

More Shows

Where I live there aren't hardly any AQHA shows and if there is one they are way to far out of our price range for shows. AQHA should give more smaller show options at a lower cost. With this they would have more people compete especially if they show at the levels i do and that don't have millions to pay for a show.

Others a chance

For things like the Youth World Cup I don't think you should have to have points in order to apply. Because im a AQHYA member but i do not show in any AQHA shows but still would like the chance to apply for the chance to be picked for something like the Youth World Cup but since i do not show in any AQHA shows me and probably many others cannot apply for the chance to be picked.

AQHA World Show Level 1 Western Pleasure Stakes Class

Level 1 Western Pleasure Stakes Class Champioins should also be able to receive Champion Jackets also or a different leather jacket for their accomplishment. Also they should be recognized in the AQHA journal with their picture along with the other winners. I feel if the class is offered at the world show they should be treated equally. When you travel far and and have the opportunity to show at such a world class show ...more »
