Disclaimer: The AQHA Online Rulebook is a reference for AQHA members and American Quarter Horse enthusiasts. Although AQHA has gone to great lengths to ensure its accuracy, some differences may exist between it and the printed version. The current rules are updated in the online and electronic versions of the rulebook. 

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

In the rulebook, you’ll learn the new rules effective as of January 1, 2015. For example, transfer fees increased from $15 to $20 per horse, however, you can save $5 by submitting your registrations via the online system. Registrations can still be mailed and faxed to AQHA, but members will save time and money by submitting them online.
