Dedicated to promoting the American Quarter Horse in Oklahoma through sharing information, events and activities for the amateur, youth and professional horsemen.
State Year End Standings – updated 8/14/17
If you have a current AQHA or AQHYA membership, you are eligible to show your American Quarter Horse in open competition. Open competition is usually for the most experienced exhibitors, trainers and professional horsemen but many amateur and youth members can be tough competitors as well.
Open classes can also be divided according to the age of the horse.
- Junior horses (5 years of age and under)
- Senior horses (6 years of age and older)
How It Works
Within the open division are levels: Rookie, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. These are based on the horse’s achievements.
For open division halter and cattle events, classes are leveled by the exhibitor’s record. Those levels are: 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 horses and riders with similar skill and experience levels for competition, visit www.aqha.com/leveling.
If you are a paid professional and you are ready for a higher level of competition, then the AQHA open division is for you!

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 Sr Western Pleasure Level 3 you would not be eligible to win both the Sr Western Pleasure Level 2 and 3. The buckle would go to the next in line.
