American Quarter Horse event to be held Sept. 25-26

Monday, August 16, 2010

CLOVERDALE -- The Indiana Quarter Horse Association Breeders Futurity and American Quarter Horse Association Show, an American Quarter Horse Association-approved show, will be held Sept. 25-26 at the Crossroads Arena in Cloverdale.

American Quarter Horse shows test horses' abilities in dozens of different classes and feature exciting events such as jumping, reining, barrel racing, cutting, roping and pole bending. Additionally, halter classes that judge American quarter horses based on balance, muscling and breed characteristics are held.

People who exhibit at an American Quarter Horse show earn points that turn into awards or cash at the end of the year. By competing at an AQHA show, exhibitors and horses also can qualify for an AQHA World Championship show, the premier events in the entire equine industry.

"We welcome all American quarter horse owners as well as anyone who has a passion for horses," said Don Treadway, AQHA executive vice president. "AQHA shows are fun, and anyone who has ever wanted to get involved with horses or compete at an AQHA show is encouraged to attend."

Each year, AQHA approves more than 3,000 shows and special events across the globe. For more information about the IQHA Breeders Futurity & AQHA Show, please contact Kari Williams, 614-419-0300.
