About the Western States Horse Expo
The American Quarter Horse Association has teamed with Western States Horse Expo to give horse enthusiasts in the northwest an opportunity to learn more about horses meet professionals from within the industry and ride an American Quarter Horse.

During the three-day exposition, AQHA will present 4aHORSE Test Rides on American Quarter Horses. The "test rides" will give patrons an opportunity to saddle up an American Quarter Horse and "test ride" in an arena.

AQHA's "test ride" program is part of the Association's 4aHORSE program. 4aHORSE is quickly becoming one of the most comprehensive resources for horse-related referrals and equine education in the industry.

The Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Association and other AQHA Members in the Sacramento area provide all of the American Quarter Horses used in the "test ride."
