Everything you need to know about AQHA's new showing program.
Whether it's an AQHA Professional Horseman, AQHA world champion, year-end high-point winner, or a Novice amateur exhibitor, everyone has to start somewhere. Since getting into the show ring with a former AQHA world champion is a daunting task for a beginner (to put it mildly!), AQHA has developed the leveling program.
Leveling is a method in which AQHA has broken up each class and division into different skill levels, based upon point accruals.
These new showing levels will further breakdown youth, amateur and open showing divisions. Below, I will break down the levels for each division, listing each in order from lowest skill level to highest.
>For youth and amateur divisions (based on exhibitor points):
For youth and amateur halter classes (based on exhibitor points):
For open divisions (based on horse points):
For open halter classes (based on exhibitor points):
For open cattle classes (based on exhibitor points):
At a glance, that all looks pretty complicated! Next week, we'll go into more specifics and have a point range chart for you to see.
