QuarterFest 2010

Celebrate the American Quarter Horse.

The American Quarter Horse party, QuarterFest, is a celebration of the American Quarter Horse breed and membership of the association. This year, the popular event will be held April 30 - May 2 at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

QuarterFest provides the opportunity to connect with other horse owners and enjoy exciting entertainment, including a Kentucky Derby party and a concert by Red Steagall, award-winning western musician and cowboy poet. Additionally, those who attend can bring their horses to participate in clinics led by the industry’s top professionals, whose goal is to help riders improve their relationship with their horses.

Practical and inexpensive, rope halters are a time-honored tradition for many horsemen and a wonderful training tool. Learn how to make yours today with AQHA's FREE report, "How to Make a Rope Halter."


Admission to participate in the clinics is not sold online. If you plan to bring your horse to participate in the clinics, you will need to purchase a clinic admission ticket by calling AQHA’s QuarterFest hotline toll-free at (866) 424-7433. Clinic admission includes one general admission to QuarterFest.

If you do not plan on bringing your horse for the clinics, general admission tickets are all you need to have a great weekend at QuarterFest. General admission tickets will allow you to observe as many clinics as you wish and participate in all the other aspects QuarterFest has to offer.

Expect interactive seminars, exciting demonstrations, fun contests, opportunities to go trail riding and a dedicated youth area to make it fun for everyone in your family.

Children ages 6-16 can experience their first riding lesson for only $15. The horses will be supplied.
