2014 Open World Qualifying Points

Points required to qualify for the 2014 AQHA Open World Championship Show.


Open halter horses (not including performance halter) can earn an invitation to the 2014 AQHA Open World by competing at 20 shows in a halter class during the qualifying period. Shows will be counted by show numbers.

Performance Halter 

If a horse earns its performance Register of Merit during the qualifying period (August 1, 2013, thru July 31, 2014), it will qualify to show in the performance halter at the 2014 World Show in that division.  If a horse earned its performance ROM prior to the qualifying period, he/she will need an additional 10 performance points during the qualifying period in order to qualify for the 2014 World Show. Only riding points earned in the open division can be used for qualification in the open division part of the World Show; however, open division points can cross over to count for amateur, Select amateur and/or youth performance halter qualification for their respective world shows (must be earned during those respective qualifying periods). Amateur, Select amateur and/or youth riding points can also cross over from each other. Showmanship points do not count.
