I continue to read the QHJ and with interest read how AQHA has instructed judges to NOT place horses with a slow lope and rolling the peanut. But yet.....YOU CONTINUE to do so and without reprimand of the judges who do. You need to cease this once and for all and enforce the rule! Start monitoring your judges and clean house.
No individual on the Executive Committee or the most powerful committee, the Stud Book & Registration Committee, should be allowed to vote on rule changes that directly affect them financially. Also, there should not be several individuals involved in a portion of the industry (i.e.) racing on the Stud Book & Registration Committee.
A search feature which would list registered horses by owners name would be nice. Entering the owners name would yield a list of horses currently registered to that person.
Open up registration in honor of Dual Peppy to horses that have been abused, neglected and abandoned by the last registered owners. Transfer paperwork to the horses current caregiver. Horses that can be identified by pictures, brands or DNA. For a fee and joining AQHA.
The AQHA needs to REALLY limit terms for officers and directors. Currently, when their terms are up, they just get themselves voted in again. There are some directors who have been officers and directors for 14 years, including the current president.
