How many hours do you spend in the saddle? Between recreational riding, training for a show and loping around a show pen, you’re sure to spend just about as much time in the saddle as you do on your own two feet.

AQHA is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its Horseback Riding Program with a special membership promotion. 

With the Horseback Riding Program, the more you ride, the more prizes you can earn.

When you take advantage of this membership offer, AQHA will automatically enroll you in the Horseback Riding Program, and then as you ride, you simply log your hours to your account online. It’s really that simple.

As long as you maintain an active membership in AQHA, you’ll be enrolled in the Horseback Riding Program. And if you’ve previously been in the program and your membership lapsed, AQHA will reinstate your hours so you can pick up right where you left off.

Want to know what all is offered in this great deal? Check it out:

  • Three-year general AQHA membership
  • Enrollment in the AQHA Horseback Riding Program
  • AQHA-logoed saddle bag from AQHA Corporate Partner Professional’s Choice 
  • One-year subscription to The Trail Rider magazine

Don’t forget that as an AQHA member, you’ll receive special discounts from our corporate partners, such as:

Also, your AQHA membership includes an annual subscription to America’s Horse magazine. Ten times a year, America’s Horse will arrive in your mailbox, but AQHA members also have the option of reading the digital edition of America’s Horse, which features the same great content, but is accessible online.

This is a $225 value, but you get all of this today for a special package price of only $119.95 – that’s a 47 percent discount. If you’re already an AQHA member, you can simply extend your AQHA membership for three years.

Reap the rewards two-fold – in and out of the show pen – with this humdinger of a deal. And keep in mind that at 5,000 hours in the Horseback Riding Program, you’ll receive a Montana Silversmiths silver buckle customized for the Horseback Riding Program.

If you have a question or prefer to enroll by phone, simply call AQHA customer service Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. CST at (866)424-7827, or you can enroll online at aqha.com/trailriders.
