The event totals are in – these were the top AQHA shows and circuits in 2018.

From The American Quarter Horse Association From February in Las Vegas to the tail end of the year in Florida, AQHA members turned out in droves to support shows, circuits and special events across the United States. Combined, the overall Top-10 AQHA shows saw entries totaling 93,992 in 2018. Rankings were calculated by dividing the total number of entries for each event by the event’s total number of show numbers.            “Congratulations to the show management teams behind these top shows. It’s exciting to look at this list of shows and see both the East and West coasts represented, with shows from up north and down south, spanning spring, summer, fall and winter,” said AQHA Chief Show Officer Pete Kyle.  “These

The Challenge Kicked Off the 2019 Season

The Southern Ohio Quarter Horse Association’s first show of the 2019 season is a wrap. The CHALLENGE was a great show. Despite the cold and a few snow flurries, they had record entries. The show offered a flat fee of $180 per horse and was run by An Equine Production. They also provided a Leveled 14-18 Showmanship and Horsemanship class. “We love the Challenge because it’s a great opportunity for the kids to earn some money for a change,” says Ohio Trainer Missy Thyfault. “The kids love picking their best three classes which makes it a little different than the normal High Point awards typically offered. If someone has an off day in that class they picked, the race can get shaken up some. It keeps it fun for them, and the

FAQ - 2019 AQHA Rule Book

An Equine Production created this quick reference guide so that you can download it, save it to your phone or tablet, etc. They hope that it will help you find some of the quick rules that they are often asked in the office or at the gate. Please note, at NO times, should this replace the AQHA Rule Book. And NEVER feel like you are ‘bothering’ show management with a rule question. An Equine Production wants you to ask, understand, and know. If you are more comfortable with the rules, you will show more often!

Quarter Horse Congress stays on same dates for 2019; Moves up one week in 2020

Quarter Horse Congress stays on same dates for 2019; Moves up one week in 2020 October 1 – 27, 2019 September 22 – October 18, 2020 COLUMBUS, OH - The dates for the 53rd annual All American Quarter Horse Congress, held October 1 – 27, 2019, have been set by the Ohio Quarter Horse Association. The dates for the 2020 Congress have moved up one week to take place from September 22 – October 18, 2020. The decision is based in large part on increasing the window between the Congress and the AQHA World Show. In the past, these shows have been back-to-back with very few days in between to recover and prepare for the Open/Amateur AQHA World Show. In 2018, there were three days in between the shows. The new date implementation will
