AHQA to have Tucumcari competition

Special to the Sun

The NMQHA special event Working Cowhorse, an American Quarter Horse Association-approved special event will be May 23 at the Quay County Arena in Tucumcari.
American Quarter Horse Shows test horses’ abilities in dozens of different classes. This special event is just for working cow horse enthusiasts.
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 the AQHA or American Quarter Horse Youth Association World Championship Shows, 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 Bill Brewer, AQHA executive vice president. “AQHA Shows are fun, and anybody 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 2,700 shows and special events across the globe. For information about the NMQHA special event Working Cowhorse, contact Suellen Hensleigh, 505-877-7274.
