Genetic testing and the AQHA Classifieds are both benefits of AQHA membership.

Genetic Testing
Thinking about breeding or just need peace of mind? AQHA members save $40 on the AQHA genetic test! The five-panel genetic test determines if a horse is a carrier of hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP), malignant hyperthermia (MH), polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM1), glycogen branching enzyme deficiency (GBED) or hereditary equine regional dermal asthenia (HERDA).

When the test is ordered, AQHA will send a DNA kit to the owner, who then mails it with mane and/or tail hair to the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory at the University of California-Davis for testing. Once the tests are complete, AQHA will notify the owners and record the results on the horse's record and registration.

Order the test today for only $85, compared to $125 for non-members, and safeguard you and your horse. Call AQHA at (806) 376-4811 and get started today!

AQHA Classifieds
Looking to buy a new horse or sell that old trailer? The AQHA Classifieds tab on www.aqha.com is a great resource for members!

The site also offers guides on buying and selling horses, pricing horses and legal forms to protect buyers and sellers.
