American Quarter Horse Association
AQHA is proud to be an international association that unites people from across the world with a common interest in the American Quarter Horse. American Quarter Horses call different corners of the globe their home, but their heritage lies in America.
Memorial Day is an opportunity to celebrate those who have served the United States of America and those who have paid the ultimate price for their service. In remembrance of the heritage and history of our country, we would like to share a collage of the American Quarter Horse carrying the colors of America and honor the memories of those who have served. Photos were taken by The American Quarter Horse Journal.
