There are plenty of opportunities to compete in timed events in and out of the AQHA arena. In AQHA competition, though, you and your Quarter Horse can compete at approved events, earn points toward awards and titles, even qualifying for the industry’s pinnacle events – AQHA world championship shows. If you’re wanting to stay more local, look to the AQHA Regional Championships and AQHA Level 1 Championships, which are fun events where you can test your mettle and be recognized for your speed and skill. Get out there and have fun!
