Tell the world about your success at the AQHA Level 1 Championships! AQHA is here to help you promote your accomplishments with three tips to ensure your success is heralded within your community.

  1. Share your achievements with your community via a hometown press release.

Let your hometown know about your achievements with your American Quarter Horse by downloading a press release template, available in the Media Resources section of Exhibitors or their guardians in the case of our youth exhibitors can complete the easy-to-fill-out release and send it electronically to local news outlets.

AQHA press release templates have everything your newspaper needs to get started in telling your story.

AQHA will send press releases and photos to the hometown newspapers of each Farnam Level 1 all-around winner and B&W Trailer Hitches Rookie high-point winner. Exhibitors and contestants are encouraged to send releases for all other achievements at the Level 1 Championships.

  1. Get social.

Use #FarnamCentral, #NutrenaEast or #AQHAWest to share your experiences with friends on social media. While you’re waiting for your next Level 1 Championships class, connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, Twitter and Google+.
