The American Quarter Horse Association is proud to announce a partnership with MTM Recognition of Oklahoma City. As the official awards provider for AQHA, MTM will provide the prestigious awards associated with AQHA events and programs, from the coveted gold globes and specially designed trophies to plaques.

AQHA previously partnered with MTM Recognition for the Association’s trophy and awards needs and is excited to partner once again with a quality company that provides well-crafted awards to AQHA members for their accomplishments.

“Receiving an award from AQHA is an honor that our members dedicate years of work to achieve,” said Craig Huffhines, AQHA executive vice president. “It is our responsibility to provide quality awards that represent the determination and effort our members put into their passion – American Quarter Horses. AQHA awards are more than just an item that is displayed on a shelf, they become a part of history and a long-lasting memory to honor milestones with your American Quarter Horses. Whether it is an award showcasing the top winners at an AQHA championship show, highlighting an achievement on the racetrack or recognizing our breeders for their impact on the Association, MTM Recognition provides exceptional awards to commemorate these accomplishments.”

Some of MTM Recognition’s partners include the NCAA, Harley-Davidson, John Deere, Mercedes-Benz, Special Olympics, McDonald’s and many other great companies. MTM Recognition provides professional, quality products to recognize people in each step of their journey, from beginning to end.

“For more than 50 years, MTM Recognition has been celebrating champions, and we're honored to partner with AQHA,” said Mike Ketcherside, MTM Recognition vice president. “Many of the AQHA events are held in our community, Oklahoma City, or in the surrounding area where our headquarters is located. We are proud of the partnership with AQHA and are looking forward to celebrating its top champions by crafting world-class awards with great care. This is a great day for both organizations.”

When awards are earned, AQHA members will receive an email notifying them of their accomplishments. The email will contain instructions for how to log into the MTM Recognition website, as well as credentials for ordering their custom award. If AQHA does not have an email on file, the member will receive a letter in the mail.
