Mission Statement: To promote interest in the American Quarter Horse and to represent membership. To achieve the mission, the association seeks to:

  • Encourage humane care
  • Promote the breed
  • Adhere to the rules of AQHA
  • Promote youth and adult activities and events.

Just what is an American Quarter Horse? If you have ever seen a horse in one of rodeo's timed events, been along for work on a ranch or watched a Western on the big or small screen, 9 times out of 10 you have seen an American Quarter Horse.

These heavily muscled, compact horses could run a short distance over a straightaway faster than any other horse, and the fastest were called Celebrated American Quarter Running Horses by English colonists in the 1600s. In 1940 a registry was formed to preserve the breed which officially became the American Quarter Horse.
