Most members of the general public don't know about AQHA shows, and i think AQHA should do press releases to local television stations inviting the general public to come have a fun day at an AQHA show: watching us show, asking questions, pet horses, and possibly have a free lunch on aqha. Seems like many organizations do this and that might help generate interest in AQHA showing and in horses in general.
Please add the link to find out how many points one currently on a particular horse has for qualifying for an upcoming world show, on the world show information page (that already has a link to the list of # of points). I'm not sure where that link is anymore on the new website. Its not on 'shows' or 'records'.
The redesign of the web for finding show results is incredibly labor intensive and take a lot more time to find show results. Please find a way to make it so you don't have to click 10+ things to find a single show. (Year, then country, then state, then city, then show, then amateur, etc...)
I am sure that it is chosen because there are no ground poles to set up and fix as well as it being the quickest pattern to get through.... more »
We are new to horse shows. We'd like to get involved but it's tough to learn it all. What about a class for new members where they walk through the patterns etc and hear from a judge what they look for?
It would be great if AQHA would have professional horseman available at the Novice Championships to help exhibitors showing without trainers. A day fee could be charged.
AQHA needs to allow genetic testing data from certified labs, in addition to UC-Davis. There is no reason data from other labs should not be considered valid.
Ranch Horse Pleasure has been a very successful and growing class for AQHA and popular among members and new members wanting to try class. Leave class format the same and let this popular class evolve without structural changes. (i.e. leave as individual pattern class, not adding more obstacles etc).
It would be helpful to have at least a description of the reports that we are able to purchase. I don't know or remember time to time what the letters in the table stand for. Even more helpful would be a sample of each of the reports. I would think this would be a simple addition.
