Qualify through your affiliate for the AQHA Novice championships.

Qualifying Period:  July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014

  • Participants must be Missouri Quarter Horse Association or Missouri Quarter Horse Youth Association prior to any state qualifying points being earned.
  • MQHA will invite the top-three highpoint-earning exhibitors in each class offered at the Novice championships, using each exhibitor’s best eight shows (judges) within the qualifying period.
  • Novice amateur and Novice youth will earn qualifying points based on our current state year-end awards point system at any MQHA-sanctioned show held within the qualifying period. Points are earned on a per horse/exhibitor combination.
  • In the event of a tie, the exhibitor placing in the most shows will break the tie.
  • From AQHA: If there are not three qualifiers in a particular class, the affiliate may move that “slot” to another class and submit four in a particular class; however, no more than six state qualifiers will be allowed in a particular class.
