AQHA's "Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations" is updated yearly after undergoing careful scrutiny by AQHA. The Handbook represents corporation bylaws, rules and regulations of registration, rules and regulations of racing, rules and regulations of shows, amateur and youth division rules and regulations, Horseback Riding Program rules, and the constitution of AQHYA.
AQHA's Handbook answers all your questions regarding AQHA rules, showing patterns, horse markings, equipment guidelines and more.
NOTE: The online version of the handbook supersedes all previous editions.
