AzQHA programs benefit all horse breeds and disciplines by sponsoring
youth programs, trail rides, show and educational opportunities.

Arizona Quarter Horse Association is an affiliate of the AQHA which serves to promote and encourage American Quarter Horse ownership and participation throughout the state of Arizona. We invite you to get involved with our many events and volunteer opportunities.

Thought you couldn’t afford it? Not so! The Arizona Quarter Horse Association pays for all participating Arizona Quarter Horse Youth members’ stalls and entries each year at the World show. Call AzQHYA Youth advisor Connie Hay 623-869-8037 for details or learn more on our Youth Page.

Each year, the Arizona Quarter Horse Association offers multiple scholarships to its Youth members. In 2017 and 2018 AzQHA awarded $26,700 to its Youth members. Youth members  can start earning money at any age which will be held in an account and paid to the college of the youth’s choosing.
