AQHA Regional Championships are tentatively scheduled for 2018.

Find the closest 2018 AQHA Regional Championships to you and bring your American Quarter Horse to experience an event that will test your skills in a rewarding environment. AQHA Regional Championships are a series of shows that allow you to compete for a chance to win great prizes from AQHA’s team of corporate partners and sponsors.

Awards will be provided by AQHA partners for first through third place in each of the eight core classes in Level 1 youth 13-&-Under, Level 1 youth 14-18, Level 1 amateur and either Rookie or Select amateur and buckles for the all-around winner in each division.

AQHA Regional Championships will also offer walk-trot classes for beginning competitors. This opportunity allows for novice riders to gain experience and recognition for their work in a safe and educational environment.

“Exhibitors can compete at any of the four Regional Championships; however, competitors can only compete in one Regional Championships each year,” said Charlie Hemphill, AQHA director of shows and new events. “These shows are the best way for exhibitors to get their feet wet in AQHA championship shows.”
