CQHA Grant Funding/Sponsorship Opportunities

CQHA, a non-profit organization, provides financial support to events having the potential to encourage the expansion of the AQHA/CQHA membership, the marketing of the American Quarter Horse, the understanding and protection of the breed, as well as the discovery of the American Quarter Horse's many talents.

A vast number of activities can achieve the objectives. The Budget Committee examines applications with a view to allocating available funds to activies that will achieve and support the objectives. 

CQHA/AQHA GRANT APPLICATION GUIDELINES - OCTOBER 1, 2018 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2019 (Grant Period):

The CQHA mandate, approved by the Board of Directors in 2001, is posted on our website as follows: “The CQHA shall exist to address issues of concern to Canadian owners of American Quarter Horses; to be a communications vehicle for and with Canadian owners of American Quarter Horses; and to promote and market – both globally and within Canada – Canadian-bred and/or Canadian-owned American Quarter Horses.”

The CQHA’s main purpose is to support and promote the development of the Canadian Quarter Horse industry in Canada and abroad. CQHA also strives to support the hard work of all the Provincial Affiliates.

Currently, the AQHA annually allocates Grant Funds to CQHA to be used to support, promote and develop American Quarter Horse activities in Canada. The CQHA in turn administers the allocation of these funds in the form of Affiliate Grant funding to the Provincial and Regional AQHA Affiliates to financially assist them in promoting the American Quarter Horse and sponsoring approved AQHA shows and activities as outlined in the guidelines below.

The current objectives include activities to encourage the expansion of the AQHA and CQHA membership, AQHA registrations, the marketing of the American Quarter Horse, the understanding and protection of the breed integrity as well as the discovery of the American Quarter Horse’s many talents. A vast number of activities can achieve the objectives. The Budget Committee examines applications with a view to allocating available funds to activities that will achieve and support the objectives.
