The AQHA Horseback Riding Program is a fun way for AQHA and AQHYA members to log hours spent with their horses - American Quarter Horse or not. The program offers two divisions: the Quarter Horse Division and the All-Breeds Division.

To enroll, one must be an AQHA or AQHYA member.

America's Horse magazine is one of AQHA members' favorite member benefits. Are you taking advantage of this amazing resource, offered to you 10 times a year?

With a one-time $35 program enrollment fee, members can be on their way to earning great rewards such as SmartPak gift cards, Quarter Horse Outfitters apparel, saddle bags and belt buckles from Montana Silversmiths!

Have more than one horse? The more the merrier! Members are permitted to submit hours for more than one horse.

Borrowing or leasing a Quarter Horse? No problem! Members do not have to own their own horse to participate, however the horse must be registered with AQHA to be enrolled in the Quarter Horse Division.

Read America's Horse to start learning more about trail rides, tack tips, horse health and people just like you who love their horses!

The deadline to submit 2017 log sheets is December 31, so there is still plenty of time to join the fun!
