Spring is in the air, birds are chirping… and AQHA exhibitors know what that means – horse-show season is getting into full swing! We compiled a checklist of key to-do’s to get you and your horse ready for horse-show season:           

  1. Plan your show season. The AQHA online show calendar is a great tool for finding shows near you. Search by month and state to map out your show season.
  2. Find your level. You and your horse can compete in with other horse/rider teams of a similar skill level. Note: If you are planning on showing in Level 1 classes, make sure you fill out a Level 1 application.
  3. Brush up on qualifying methods. Whether your goal is to attend one of the AQHA Level 1 Championships in 2018 or go for the gold at an AQHA world championship later this year, you’ll need to make sure you’re on track to qualify.
  4. Get the 2017 AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations. You can also download a PDF version of the 2016 Handbook, request a print version or get the app.
