National Qualifying Points | State/Province Invites

Qualifying Period: July 30, 2013 – August 1, 2014


Amateur halter competitors (not including performance halter) can earn an invitation to the 2014 Bank of America Amateur World by competing at 10 shows in a halter class during the qualifying period. Shows will be counted by show numbers on a one-horse, one-exhibitor basis.

Performance Halter

If a horse earns its performance Register during the qualifying period (July 30, 2013, thru August 1, 2014), it will qualify to show in the performance halter at the 2014 Bank of America Amateur World. If a horse earned its performance ROM prior to the qualifying period, he/she will need an additional 10 riding points during the qualifying period in order to qualify for the 2014 Bank of America Amateur World. Riding points earned in the youth, open, amateur and Select amateur divisions during the qualifying period can cross over to count for amateur performance halter. Showmanship points do not count.

Amateur State/Province Invitational Program

The Amateur State/Province Invitational program will once again be an available method of earning an invitation for amateur competitors. The amateur-horse combination will be required to reach at least half the points set as the minimum to be invited as a state/provincial invitee in each particular class. This program is operated by AQHA, not the AQHA affiliates, and exhibitors are invited based on the state/province in which they reside, not where they show. Ties will be broken by the exhibitor who won the last point or 0.5 point first.
