The 2015 AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations just got easier to use. It’s now coming to you in three, easy-to-use sections.

The first two sections of the 2015 Handbook -- Registration and Showing -- are now available in PDF format and print. AQHA members can download the handbook sections or request a printed section at www.aqha.com/handbook.

The 2015 AQHA Handbook is sectioned as follows:

  • REGISTRATION: Provides AQHA General Rules, plus the rules regarding foal registration, transfers, stallion breeding and all other registration rules.
  • SHOWING: Provides AQHA General Rules, plus the rules associated with AQHA shows, competition and judges.
  • RACING: Provides AQHA General Rules, plus all the rules regarding AQHA racing competition.

In addition to rules and regulations of registration, racing, shows, amateur and youth divisions and the constitution of AQHYA, the handbook represents corporation bylaws.

The handbook answers all your questions regarding AQHA rules, show patterns, horse markings, equipment guidelines and much more.

At a later date, the handbook will be available digitally for computers and devices in browser and app versions.
