President's Update

BCQHA promotes the Quarter Horse in British Columbia ( BC ) in a wide variety of ways. Quarter owners are being supported and encouraged to show their horses at AQHA approved shows throughout BC. These shows include classes such as Western Pleasure, Halter, Showmanship, Trail, Ranch Riding, English Hunter Under Saddle, Barrel Racing and Pole bending. Exhibitors earn points towards BCQHA year-end awards, AQHA incentive fund awards and a long list of AQHA championship awards.

BCQHA supports the recreational rider by promoting AQHA trail rides, organizing informational/horsemanship clinics and by awarding riders with the BC Ride/Drive program.

BCQHA was also very pleased to be a part of the second Horse Day at the PNE. Displays by our versatile quarter horses were well received. The volunteers manning the information booth had a great time interacting with the many visitors.
