AQHA International Educational Marketplace

The AQHA International Educational Marketplace makes existing educational program funds available to educational seminar hosts via grant application.

This program makes funding more accessible to international affiliates and members to provide as many educational opportunities to affiliates and member groups as possible via a model that is flexible enough to meet the needs of various affiliates and countries.

Quality Samples Program

Via AQHA and our partner, U.S. Livestock Genetics Export, Inc. international affiliates apply for the USDA-funded Quality Samples Program, which promotes offspring produced by international AQHA registered mares inseminated with export-ready semen from American Quarter Horse Stallions standing in the U.S.

AQHA International Best Remuda

AQHA presents the Best Remuda Award – the oldest and most prestigious ranching award.

The American Quarter Horse Association created the Best Remuda Award to honor the contributions that ranch horses have made to the heritage of the American Quarter Horse. Since 2018, AQHA annually recognizes an international ranch remuda comprised of registered American Quarter horses to honor the raising of outstanding ranch horses.
