Saturday March 26, 2022 from 4pm to 6pm
IQHA is interested in your input and participation in upcoming events. We are hosting a Wine and Cheese party Saturday March 26, 2022 from 4pm to 6pm at the Fleet Reserve Association building located at 1012 11th Avenue North, Nampa ID 83687. To better serve the entire state, IQHA has held events for northern and eastern Idaho members last year and now are hoping to engage Quarter Horse owners in the southern part of the state.
IQHA, Idaho’s AQHA affiliate, is hoping to meet with members and prospective members to gain input for the future of the association. We also want to share plans IQHA has for 2022, including new shows for the Treasure Valley area in cooperation with partners in Idaho Paint Horse Club and Idaho State Horse Show Association.
Please join us in congratulating and supporting the three members who will be representing Idaho at the 2021 Built Ford Tough AQHYA World Championship Show July 28 – August 8 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City. This is an exciting opportunity for these young women and we wish them the best!
Rylee Snodgrass is a eighth grader from Cashmere Washington. She started showing in AQHA classes when she was six years old. She is currently showing in the youth all around division on her horse, Seize Your Assets affectionately known as Herbie. Rylee and Herbie compete in halter, showmanship, western pleasure, horsemanship, hunter under saddle, hunt seat equitation, and trail. When not showing AQHA she participates in the Youth Equestrian Development Association (YEDA). Besides showing horses Rylee is an avid basketball player. Rylee and Herbie will be competing at the AQHYA World Championship show this summer in both the Level 3 13 and under all around classes and the Level 1 youth 13 and under novice championship classes. Rylee will be representing IQHA as her chosen state affiliate. Rylee is under the guidance of Melissa Sexton Performance Horses.
Let’s all wish Rylee the best of luck. We are proud to have her representing IQHA!
Brogan Marie Hill is a recent High School graduate from St. Anthony, Id. She has ridden horses her entire life in and out of the arena, not only casually, but also training for and showing in multiple disciplines. Her love for reining manifest itself when she rode her first reining horse five years ago. Brogan (Bee) is heavily involved in the youth program. She serves as the 2021 Youth President of the Idaho Reining Horse Association and has been the IdRHA Youth year-end high point winner four of the last five years.
Bee was one of the 2018 Recipients of AQHA Ranching Heritage Young Horse Development Program, receiving an AQHA Ranching Heritage bred yearling that she has trained and developed.
Excited to represent our great state of Idaho at the AQHA Youth World show, Brogan with her partner Quik Draw McGraw (QD) are working hard to prepare for tough competition. QD is a 5 year-old buckskin gelding that has earnings in the Idaho Reining Horse Assoc., National Reining Horse Assoc. and the American Stock Horse Assoc.
Let’s all join together to support Brogan and QD!
Addison Burton, from Nampa, is fifteen and a Junior at Vision Charter School. She has ridden since before she could walk, and shown for the past ten years. She has always had a love for horses, and has been around them her entire life.
In 2018, she began showing Crusin, a 2008 bay gelding, and was the 2018 Justin Youth Rookie of the year for Idaho. In years past, she was the High Point Showman in her local horse show club. Addison and Crusin are very excited to be representing Idaho at the AQHA Youth World Show. They will be showing in Halter and Showmanship. Addison thanks her parents and Lorrie Lynne for their support.
The qualifying period for the 2022 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World is August 1, 2021, to July 31, 2022.
Exhibitors and their American Quarter Horses can now qualify by meeting one of the three following requirements:
1. Earn the required number of qualifying points for the desired class during the 2022 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World qualifying period, August 1, 2021, to July 31, 2022, and pay the standard entry fee. View the qualifying points. This qualifying achievement will be added to the horse’s permanent AQHA record.
2. Participate in six AQHA-approved events during the 2022 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World qualifying period and pay the standard entry fee, regardless of the number of points earned. Participation credit is earned by horse on a class-by-class basis for the open division and by horse/exhibitor combination for both the amateur and Select amateur divisions. AQHA events encompass all judge numbers for a particular show or circuit. For example, the Arizona Sun Circuit is considered one event, even though it includes eight sets of points. This qualifying method will not be added to the horse’s permanent AQHA record.
3. If the requirements outlined above are not met, an American Quarter Horse can still be entered in the show for a significantly higher entry fee, similar to the halter nomination pilot program that was implemented in 2017 and paused due to the waived qualifying in 2020 and 2021. Open classes will require a $7,500 nomination fee per class, while amateur and Select amateur will require a $5,000 nomination fee per class. That money will be added back to the purse in the respective class, as was the case for the halter pilot program.
