October 2012 ushered in the start of championship season; it also marked the start of three months where American Quarter Horses will battle for more than $32 million in cash and prizes.
This fall’s premiere events for American Quarter Horses include:
“Year after year, American Quarter Horses excel at and appear in many of the world’s most exciting equine events that offer lucrative purses to the connections of these horses,” said AQHA Executive Vice President Don Treadway Jr. “There are events from coast to coast, representing a wide range of disciplines. I hope horse lovers from around the globe will have the chance to witness some of the greatest American Quarter Horses during this championship season of events.”
Before heading out to one of these – or other great events – Treadway reminds people to vote for your elected officials early if you’re not going to be home on Election Day.
“Voting is one of the greatest freedoms we enjoy, and I know horse people here in the United States are proud of the liberties we have, so I hope – regardless of party affiliation – people will remember to go to the polls before heading out to their favorite equine event. It’s important.”
