Horseback Riding Program
Purpose: The purpose of the ASQHA Horseback Riding (HBR) Program is to promote and reward ASQHA members for enjoying their American Quarter Horses, and other breeds, outside of the competitive show arena. This is not a competitive program; however, awards will be given to those who accumulate the greatest number of hours in the saddle throughout the year. In addition, “lifetime achievement” recognition will be given to participants who reach benchmark hours.
Divisions: There will be four separate divisions. Two horse divisions: AQHA and Other Breed. Each of these will have two rider categories: Adult (19+) and Youth (18 and under).
Enrollment: In order to participate in the ASQHA HBR program, you must have an ASQHA (or ASQHYA for Youth) membership. In addition, participants must pay an annual enrollment fee of $10. You pay one enrollment fee per division, plus membership. However, you are only allowed to choose one division under that one fee.
Participants are required to log the hours they spend riding their horse, as well as the location. Click on HBR “Information and Registration” on asqha.com, then click on the “Event Report” button.
Awards: The “season” for year-end awards will run from June 1-August 31. After Sept. 1, participants have until October 1 to submit their completed log sheets to Christina. The participants logging the most hours in each division/rider category will receive year-end awards, similar to the show high-point award recipients.
In addition, “lifetime benchmarks” have been established for all hours logged after registration during the year from January 1 – December 31. Once a rider reaches 50, 100, 250, 500, 750, and 1,000 hours, they will receive a special award from ASQHA. Only hours accumulated in consecutive years as an enrolled member will count towards these benchmarks. If an individual chooses not to participate (at a minimum as an enrolled member) in the HBR Program for a year, all past hours are lost, and they will begin again at their next enrollment with 0 hours.
Rules: Refer to general rules on page 2.
• Logs are being kept on the honor system.
• In order for hours to count, participants MUST have a CURRENT ASQHA or
• Separate log sheets must be kept for each individual horse, and each division
(AQHA vs. Other Breeds).
• Although the “season” officially begins on June 1, participants may enroll
at any time. Hours cannot be counted until Christina has received the enrollment,
and sent a welcome letter and log form.
• Hours from log sheets not submitted by October 1 will not be counted for Year-end awards, however, they will count towards Lifetime Benchmarks if they are received by December 31.
• Activities that count for hours in this program include:
Trail riding (DOUBLE HOURS for attending the ASQHA/AQHA Trail Ride)
Practice roping, cutting, or penning
Search and Rescue
Pen Riding (such as at a cattle sale barn)
Competitive endurance rides
Jackpot Ropings, Barrel Races, Pennings, or Rodeos

• The ASQHA reserves the right to change or modify these rules at any time. We will do our best to inform participants of any changes, via publication on the ASQHA website.
