AQHA is proud to support our Regional Championships by providing up to 32 buckles for the Level 1 classes!  Adequan® i.m. (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), the official equine joint therapy of AQHA, is another proud sponsor and provides up to 32 buckles for the Level 2 classes.  When you choose a joint therapy for your horses, choose Adequan®. 

The Regional Championships would not be possible without the help of AQHA corporate partners.
