Qualifications and Rules for the All-Breeds Division

Once you enroll in the All-Breeds division, sponsored by SmartPak and Professional's Choice, simply log the hours you spend riding your American Quarter Horse. As you move up through the thresholds, you earn attractive awards and the opportunity to purchase jackets reserved exclusively for higher-hour award recipients. The awards series culminates at 2,000 hours.

  • Must maintain AQHA, AQHYA or Amateur membership.
  • One-time $35 enrollment fee.
  • Log hours riding or pleasure driving on official log sheets - one sheet per horse.
  • A minimum of one log sheet must be submitted annually to maintain enrollment in the program.
  • Deadline to turn in your hourly log sheets is December 31 of the current year.
  • One AQHA membership is equal to one enrollment. If both members of a joint account would like to participate in the Horseback Riding Program, one of the two will need a separate membership.
