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

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. All sanctioned Texas TAQHA shows will count for points towards year end awards.

 

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 2017 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.

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 Past President Jim McAlister
