The 'Get on and Ride' Scheme

On August the 1st 2012 the AQHA UK ‘Get on and Ride’ Scheme was launched

Participating members are rewarded for hours spent in the saddle on their nominated horse.

Hours are to be logged on a monthly basis on a designed Sheet and submitted to the AQHA UK.

You can participate in the scheme on your own, with a friend or with a group of people.

You do not have to own a Quarter Horse but, you do have to be an AQHA UK Member and set up a continuous membership (ie standing order). The scheme is open to all AQHA UK Members and there is no Registration Fee.

Rewards as follows:

  • 50hrs – Rosette
  • 100hrs – Rosette & picture in the AQHA-UK Journal
  • 150hrs – AQHA-UK Polo-shirt
  • 250hrs – £20 AQHA-UK Merchandise voucher
  • 500hrs – Rope Halter
  • 750hrs – One year free membership to AQHA-UK
  • 1000hrs – Montana Silversmith Belt Buckle

You can participate in the Scheme on your own, with a friend or with a group of people.

You do not have to own a Quarter Horse but, you do have to be an AQHA UK Member (and have continuous membership) Hours in the saddle can be accrued for Hacking and Trail Riding only. Hours spent in the saddle at Shows are NOT included.

If you are interested in joining the scheme then please download and fill out the registration form on our Download Forms page here and then email us at, we will then contact you with all the necessary information, and you can start filling out your log sheets!

Hi All GOAR Members

Congratulations to the following:

Pam Heighton              500hours awarded a rope halter
Dennis Stocks              100hours rosette and a polo shirt for 150hrs
Sue Foulds                  150hrs receiving a polo shirt
Leonie Wheeler           150hrs receiving a polo shirt

I have managed to obtain the dates for the Weekend in the Woods it is taking place on the 24th 25th & 26th August. 
As usual it is at Light touch/Wideham Farm in the Kings Forest. Numbers will be limited so apply quickly to avoid disappointment 
On another note hope you are all taking advantage of the fine weather and enjoying your horses.
We have just got back from Hoe Grange farm near Matlock in Derbyshire which I can highly recommend but there are a lot of gates to get through. Sean had a wonderful time but realized he had to pace himself after the first day. I did not realize how many places cater for horses in the UK and we have another two to go to this year thanks to David and Sue Turner for organising us, I am really looking forward to our next location…
Happy trails (as they say in the States!)

Jane Roberts
