THE TEXAS AMATEUR QUARTER HORSE ASOCIATION is committed to the Texas Amateur rider and to those things that will make involvement with the Quarter Horse more rewarding and MORE FUN!


Texas Amateur Quarter Horse Association Began in 1981 with several goals and ideas in mind: Increase participation in AQHA shows in Texas. Encourage growth and give support to local AQHA Associations. Increase participation in trail riding and leisure horse activities to Quarter Horse owners. Support TQHA for both the Halter and performance and Race programs

"TAQHA plans to grow the membership, promote the American Quarter Horse and create an exciting and positive environment for Quarter Horse enthusiasts. TAQHA has supported local AQHA associations. It feels that strong local organizations are primary to the growth of horse show entries in Texas."

-TAQHA President Jim McAlister









The 2012 Texas Amateur State Championship Show in conjunction with Big Country Quarter Horse Association held April 18-22, 2012.

Don’t miss out on the perks of being a member of THE TEXAS AMATEUR QUARTER HORSE ASOCIATION!

Texas Amateur Quarter Horse Association has given year end awards to the amateur rider for many years. TA plans to seek greater member participation in this very successful program. Beginning in 2010 all sanctioned Texas AQHA shows will count for points toward year end awards.
Training events hosted by well known trainers who will cover subjects from “tips for beginning horsemen” to “advanced horsemanship and halter” offered through local associations.

TA will more intensely encourage participation in ranch rides for the recreational rider. This is a rapidly growing sector of horse interest and offers great pleasure to those that do not compete in shows. With enough participation Year end awards will be presented.

TA supports the cattle events. The rule change that provides that all Texas AQHA shows count for yearend awards is a first step to increase participation in cattle events. State Championship Buckles will be awarded at a 2013 summer cattle event to be announced.

TAQHA is a separate organization from TQHA (Texas Quarter Horse Association). To be eligible for TAQHA year end awards and the other benefits of your Amateur Association your TAQHA membership must be current through the end of year.
