We have just received a letter from the AQHA regarding membership and showing. Please make sure your AQHA membership is up to date before you attend a show; our Show secretaries are very diligent in checking that memberships are current when bookings are made, but they are being reminded to be extra vigilant.
AQHA to AQHA UK:
Effective immediately all exhibitors that show in an AQHA approved class without a current membership will be disqualified from that class. This includes showing in Amateur on an annual membership instead of an Amateur membership. There will be not be any reinstatements once membership is updated.
Since they verify memberships and can take new memberships and renewals at shows, this new policy is being communicated to show managers as AQHA approved shows to prevent any problems.
