Horse Records and Pedigrees

Do your homework first. Find your dream horse. AQHA will help.

Here is the perfect formula to help ensure you get the horse you want, even in difficult economic times. Combine:

  • your own knowledge with
  • sale catalogues and
  • updated performance information from AQHA's new, faster and more efficient records website or NCHA's cutting horse performance records.

By taking advantage of these three tips, you'll have the best opportunity in years to take home a winning American Quarter Horse – the one you really want. Better yet, if you're not already acquainted with AQHA's user-friendly records Web site, now's your chance.

Do Your Homework

At first glance it looks simple: pick out the horse you want, bid a few times, sign the sales paperwork and you're off. But while the selection at the World Show horse sale is unparalleled in the performance horse industry, do your homework. The fastest and most complete tool for preparing you for these sales is the perfect combination of sales catalogues and AQHA Records. For cutting horse enthusiasts, NCHA Records gives you the most complete NCHA performance records at the most economical price anywhere. After you've had time to study the sales catalogues, make a trip to one of these websites to update the performance information for your favorite prospects:
