AQHA Regional Championship Shows


The American Quarter Horse Association offers six opportunities for exhibitors to show at a Merial Regional Championship Show every year. The locations are:


Region 1: Monroe, Washington

Region 2: Rapid City, South Dakota

Region 5: Logan Township, New Jersey

Region 6: Springfield, Massachusetts

Region 8: Amarillo, Texas

Region 9: Jackson, Mississippi


These shows are a great way to compete with top notch exhibitors and win phenomenal prizes from the team of AQHA corporate partners. The divisions offered are level 1 youth/amateur, youth 14-18, youth 13 and under, amateur, rookie, select, and open. Montana Silversmith Buckles are awarded to the winners of classes in the level 1 youth/amateur, rookie, and select amateur. All-around winners of each of those divisions also receive a buckle.



AQHA members can compete at whichever Regional Championship they choose, but may only be at one a year. Contact the region of your choice for more information. With the exception of rookie and Level 1 classes, youth, amateur and select competitors may only show owned or leased horses as defined in the AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations.

Join in on the fun and bring your horse to a Regional Championship Show near you!
