MQHA creates new Recreational and Open Show program: Collect awards for participating in activities with your American Quarter Horse
Do you take part in non-MQHA shows, events and activities with your American Quarter Horse? Then join the Minnesota Quarter Horse Association’s Recreational and Open Show program, where you can earn cool awards like trophies and medals for your involvement with your American Quarter Horse.
How it works:
Track points for exhibiting your registered AQHA horse in non-MQHA events  (4-H, WSCA, etc.) as well as participating in a variety of other recreational, educational and volunteer activities. You can find the complete details at mnqha.com/recreation
•    Between 1 and 9 points per horse show class (see program enrollment form for details)
•    5 points for every volunteer activity with MQHA (Help at a MQHA show, committee membership, Tack Swap volunteer)
•    5 points every time 100 hours  is achieved in the AQHA Horseback Riding Program
•    2 points for every organized equestrian event where horse and handler participate – example: Clinics, organized trail rides, exhibitions, MQHA Boot Camp, etc.
•    2 points for every MQHA show you attend as a spectator/supporter
Then submit your point total for activities and competitions spanning from Jan. 1-Oct. 31, 2016 and you’ll receive a trophy and a medal based on whichever level you achieve:
•    Bronze level: 25-49 points
•    Silver level: 50-99 points
•    Gold level: 100+ points

However, if you’re not yet a member of MQHA, join today by completing and mailing in the the 2016 Membership application at mnqha.com/membership.
•    The cost to become a new member is $40. Please add the $10 Recreation and Open Show fee to your total, for a total payment of $50. Checks should be made out to MQHA.

•   Your MQHA membership will be good up through 2017, and comes with a number of perks and discounts, including saddle club membership for WSCA in 2017. You will, however, need to pay an additional $10 in 2017 when you participate in the Recreational and Open Show program.
