About AQHA UK
As a registered charity, our aim is to promote the
American Quarter Horse breed in the United Kingdom
Our Association is a registered charity
Our Association is a registered charity, as well as the official Affiliate for the UK; we maintain the Breed Registry for the Quarter Horse in this country.
We are an inclusive organisation – everyone is welcome!
We provide practical help and advice for everyone about all aspects of the Quarter Horse.
We encourage all ages to participate and have many retirees as our active riding members. We also encourage youth riders and are always seeking new members to be a part of the Youth World Cup team; we hold clinics and training sessions for all abilities. Many of our current trainers were members of the Youth Squad in the past.
We welcome members and non-members at all our events!
AQHA UK Council
The AQHA UK Council is elected by the members and runs the Association. Council members are volunteers and are not paid. There are meetings held throughout the year many of which are now conducted through video link which saves money in travel expenses and time. In addition there is an Annual General Meeting where members are invited to hear about plans, make comments and suggestions and to elect new council members. The Association is a registered charity, as well as a limited Company, and therefore is subject to the statutory rules and regulations.
If you would like to volunteer for a position on Council please contact us at the email below. We are always in need of extra help and would value your input.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions and it is our aim to make the Council members and Directors as accessible as possible. You can email any member by using email@example.com
