Dedicated to promoting the American Quarter Horse in Oklahoma through sharing information, events and activities for the amateur, youth and professional horsemen.
2017 State Standings – Final
American Quarter Horse owners who do not join the professional ranks may enjoy a full spectrum of competition in the amateur division.
How It Works
Within the amateur division are levels: Rookie, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.
To learn more about these levels, determine your specific level and find out how the levels group riders with similar skill and experience levels for competition, visit www.aqha.com/leveling.
You may obtain an amateur membership if you have not shown, judged, trained or assisted in training a horse (whether or not a registered American Quarter Horse) for remuneration, monetary or otherwise, either directly or indirectly, nor received remuneration for instructing another person in riding, driving, training or showing a horse for three calendar years previous to application for amateur membership.
Amateurs must exhibit a horse in their ownership or in the ownership of someone directly related to them (see AQHA Rule SHW220 for details). The relationship of the amateur to the owner of the participating horse must be evidenced by submitting legal documentation (i.e., copies of marriage and/or birth certificates) to AQHA’s Show Department.
Every person competing in an Amateur class at any AQHA approved show must hold anamateur membership and be 19 years of age or older on or before January 1 of the current year.
AQHA-approved shows may offer any amateur performance classes as all-ages and 50-and-over. The Select amateur classes, for amateur exhibitors 50 and over, are designed to provide an avenue of competition for our more mature amateur exhibitors and are becoming some of the most popular classes.
An amateur may begin competing in the Select classes on the day that they turn 50 years of age.
The Adequan Select World Championship Show is dedicated solely to exhibitors 50 years and over who have qualified for the event. Exhibitors 70 and over, known as Super-Selects, are recognized in event class at the Adequan Select World for their achievements.

Member Note: For year end prizes if you are winning more than one level, you are only eligible to win one buckle within the same class. Example: If you are leading the Amt Western Pleasure Level 3 you would not be eligible to win the Amt Western Pleasure Level 2. The buckle would go to the next in line in.
