The ASQHA Board met Monday, May 18th to discuss the plan in regards to the July and August horse shows. We have determined that we cannot make a final decision until we know when the travel mandates have been lifted (because of bringing up show staff and judges) and due to the 50 person maximum event mandate. The board will meet Monday, June 15th to make a final decision on if we are able to host AQHA shows this summer. If we are unable to host AQHA horse shows this summer, we will be planning to host ASQHA Schooling Shows and/or Clinics with the intention to have those events on the previously scheduled weekends with a modified schedule.

ASQHA Mentor Program

Have a question?  Not sure how to get started?   We can help!  ASQHA Board members are available to act as a mentor to any member in need of assistance at our shows and clinics.
  The purpose of a mentor is to guide you through your show experience in order to make it less
stressful and more fun.  Consider contacting a board member in your area and asking them to
mentor you this season.
Possible topics include:
•  What to expect at your first show or clinic
•  Who to ask if you have a question
•  Forms and Paperwork:  Entry forms, recording, EIA, membership, stalls, etc.
•  Show preparation:  When you can arrive, when you can lunge, warm up, what you should bring, what to wear, etc.
•  Parking and Stalls:  Where to park, how to reserve a stall
A mentor is not a coach, trainer, groom, or show official.  They are a volunteer and are here to guide you through the process.
