The 2013 AQHA Convention opened with an AQHA member forum on animal welfare from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on March 8, followed by the President’s Reception cocktail hour at the Hyatt Regency Houston and full reception at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo – all sponsored by Zoetis.

Attendees gathered wearing their “western best” and loaded onto complimentary shuttles from the hotel to Reliant Park for the evening rodeo, barbecue and Tim McGraw concert, all from a bird’s eye view.

The AQHA Membership General Meeting starts at 8 a.m. on March 9, followed by a first full day of committee meetings and the Awards Presentation Banquet in the evening. Watch for more from The American Quarter Horse Journal.
