Once a year, the American Quarter Horse Association hosts representatives from its corporate partners for meetings and a trail ride. This year, the event was June 7-9 at AQHA’s international headquarters in Amarillo. Participants took part in business meetings at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum and went on a trail ride at River Falls. 

“The summit is an opportunity to demonstrate the work being done with the contributions our partners make and how they enrich the lives of American Quarter Horse owners by supporting their passions,” said Tex Ann Kraft, AQHA senior director of business development. “It is also a way to thank them for the support and faith they put into our Association and the American Quarter Horse Foundation.”   

Representatives from Adequan®, Bank of America, John Deere, Justin Boots, Markel Insurance, Merial, Montana Silversmiths, Nationwide and Wrangler were in attendance.  

AQHA corporate partners play an important role in the Association’s events and programs. These companies contribute more than $7 million a year to AQHA and the Foundation. They help make shows and events possible for AQHA members to participate in and share their love for the American Quarter Horse.
