AQHA “Shows” Vision Beyond the Show Ring
The AQHA Show Council develops a mission and vision statement and AQHA members are encouraged to periodically visit www.aqha.com/showing to see the most up-to-date information concerning AQHA-approved shows.
Exciting things are happening at the American Quarter Horse Association, with some of the largest and most prestigious horse shows of the year being celebrated. Without AQHA-approved shows, the chance to qualify and compete at an AQHA world championship show or Level 1 (Novice) championship would not be available. As part of AQHA’s continuing effort to reinvent its showing model, earlier this year, the AQHA Show Council and Executive Committee established an AQHA show mission and vision statement.
“We know people love showing their American Quarter Horses and have a passion for this great breed,” said AQHA Executive Director of Shows and Judges Pete Kyle. “By creating a mission and vision statement for AQHA shows, the Show Council is able to create and uphold a high standard for the industry and let exhibitors know what to expect when they attend an AQHA show. Our goal is to create the best experience for our exhibitors no matter the country, show or size of the show. The new AQHA show mission and vision statements help give our shows purpose and direction while conveying where the Association wants to move with its showing model.”
