Level 2 allows exhibitors to move up from Level 1 and aspire to Level 3. Designed for beginning to minimally accomplished exhibitors, Level 2 even offers championships for open, amateur and youth competitors.

How Is Level 2 Eligibility Determined?

All points earned in the past three years are tabulated, excluding exhibitor Level 1 and Rookie points. Exhibitors may then compare that three-year total to the level point ranges to see if they are eligible for Level 2. Sound like too much work? Let AQHA do the math for you!
