AQHA has released the most recent disciplinary actions taken by the AQHA Executive Committee.

The American Quarter Horse Association has released the most recent disciplinary actions taken by the AQHA Executive Committee. A total of four cases were reviewed at the Executive Committee’s April meeting.

During its meetings, the Executive Committee reviews the AQHA Animal Welfare Grievance Committee’s recommendations on cases involving animal welfare violations. If the Executive Committee approves the recommendations, it will authorize AQHA staff to forward an offer of a penalty to the individuals who are the subject of such cases. The subjects can accept the penalties or they can reject them and request a hearing before the Executive Committee. If the subjects of such cases accept the penalties, information is then updated on the AQHA disciplinary actions list. If such individuals request a hearing before the Executive Committee, information regarding the outcome of the case will be published once everything is finalized.

The AQHA disciplinary actions list contains information regarding AQHA disciplinary actions associated with animal welfare, unsportsmanlike conduct and medication-related violations. With respect to medication violations, the list only contains disciplinary actions taken with respect to violations that resulted in a suspension and/or associated with a positive test for a forbidden substance as set forth in AQHA Rule VIO401.  

An AQHA suspension list can be found in The American Quarter Horse Journal and at www.aqha.com/suspensions. This list contains suspensions issued by AQHA ranging from failure to pay fees to animal welfare cases.
