"They Still Ride Good Horses"
Look back at the last 25 years of AQHA history with “They Still Ride Good Horses,” by Jim Jennings, now available at Quarter Horse Outfitters.
March 25, 2015
In honor of the American Quarter Horse Association’s 75th anniversary, author Jim Jennings wrote about the Association’s past 25 years. The book tells about the trials and tribulations of what is still the largest equine breed registry in the world from 1990 through 2014.
“They Still Ride Good Horses” is a continuation of “They Rode Good Horses,” a chronicle of the first 50 years of AQHA written by Don Hedgpeth.
AQHA is the largest equine breed registry in the world, with its horses grazing in every corner of almost every continent. From its beginning 75 years ago, when a handful of ranchers sat down and formed a set of bylaws, to the multi-million-dollar operation it is today, AQHA has had no peer.
“AQHA’s 75-year history was not easy,” Jennings wrote. “The Association, from the beginning, was fraught with conflict, conflict that at times pulled at its very roots. But, always, cooler heads prevailed, and the organization, through the years became stronger and stronger.”
“They Still Ride Good Horses” is available now at Quarter Horse Outfitters for only $49.95, plus shipping and handling.
You can also purchase specially designed AQHA 75th anniversary merchandise only available at Quarter Horse Outfitters, including products from AQHA corporate partners Montana Silver Smiths and Justin Boots.
A limited-edition sporting rifle by Cimarron Firearms Co. is also being sold in honor of the 75th anniversary. Visit www.aqha.com/rifle for more details on the sporting rifle.
