A fiesta-themed luncheon during the 2017 AQHA Convention is where the American Quarter Horse Foundation raised more than $100,000. Items up for bid in the silent and live auctions included jewelry, aged Pendleton Whisky, vacations, and Billy Klapper spurs and bit.

That money raised goes toward the focus areas of the Foundation:

  • Preserve and interpret the various roles the American Quarter Horse has held throughout history.
  • Support the educational advancement of our industry.
  • Protect and enhance the physical well-being of all equines.
  • Promote the American Quarter Horse’s capacity to provide physical and emotional benefits to individuals in need.

The Foundation Benefit Luncheon showcases the work of the Foundation and honors its volunteers. This year’s luncheon is underwritten by the Amon G. Carter Foundation.
