The American Quarter Horse Association is proud to announce that AQHA Corporate Partner Nutrena will be the title sponsor for the prestigious Don Burt AQHA Professional Horseman and AQHA Professional Horsewoman of the Year awards.

Each year, AQHA Professional Horsemen and -women are nominated for these honors and are selected based on their contributions to the industry. AQHA Professional Horsemen are held to the highest standards of personal and professional integrity. The Nutrena Don Burt AQHA Professional Horseman and Nutrena AQHA Professional Horsewoman Awards recognize the best of the best in the industry.

AQHA is proud to have Nutrena’s continued support of AQHA members and professionals alike. Nutrena is one of the world's largest equine nutrition companies, feeding more than 1 million horses per day. They contribute to AQHA members through events and initiatives such as the Nutrena East AQHA Level 1 Championships; AQHA West and Central Level 1 Championships; Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show; AQHA Select World Championship Show presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan); Lucas Oil AQHA World Championship Show; the AQHA Ranching Heritage Breeders Young Horse Development Program; Horseback Riding Program; and the Ranching Heritage Breeders program and Ranching Heritage Challenges. Nutrena also matches contributions from the Ride the Pattern Clinics hosted at AQHA world championship shows where proceeds go directly to the AQHA Professional Horsemen’s Crisis Fund.

Each year, the recipients of these two prestigious awards are presented at the AQHA Convention. These individuals will also be recognized at the AQHA Awards Celebration at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, coinciding with the Lucas Oil AQHA World Championship Show in November.
