AQHA Region Five exhibitors are preparing for the 2015 Merial AQHA Region Five Championship Show, which is slated for June 24 at the Dream Park in Logan Township, New Jersey. Regional championships provide American Quarter Horse enthusiasts a chance to test their horse-showing skills and qualify for the AQHA Level 1 championships.

This regional championship features a one-day event packed with a variety of classes, starting with Level 1 amateur showmanship at 8 a.m. on June 24 at Gloucester County Dream Park. AQHA judge Bonnie Miller will judge the event.

“Our goal with the regional championships is to offer our members another opportunity to gain experience in the show ring with their American Quarter Horses,” said Charlie Hemphill, AQHA director of shows and new events. “This also gives our members a chance to network and ride with other talented riders across their regions.”  

Additionally, placing in the top 10 as a Level 1 exhibitor in a regional championship level 1 class qualifies the rider and horse for the 2015 AQHA Level 1 championships. (this show is not offering any halter) . See www.aqha.com/novicequalifying for more details.
