The American Quarter Horse Journal- The American Quarter Horse Association is an organization that works for its members. Each spring, AQHA holds an annual convention to review member-submitted rule changes, appoint new AQHA directors, induct new members into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and present year-end awards. The 2016 AQHA Convention is March 11-14 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
AQHA invites members to attend a fun and exciting convention. New at the convention are the equine industry small business workshop and industry town hall meeting. The equine industry small business workshop, sponsored by the AQHA Professional Horsemen’s Council, is from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Friday, March 11.
