2022 AQHA Ride Program Achievers

Congratulations to the following Canadians who have been recognized by the AQHA’s Horse Back Riding Program for 2022.

The AQHA Horseback Riding Program rewards you for spending time with your horse. Spending time with your horse is one of the great parts of your life. AQHA’s Horseback Riding Program is a way to honor your horse and your partnership, as well as earn rewards for something you’re already doing. 

Once you enroll in the program, you can start recording hours. As you climb the achievement hour levels, you will earn valuable prizes and earn recognition for you and your horse. 

All breeds are welcome – there is both an American Quarter Horse division and an All-Breeds division.

Quarter Horse Division
5,000 Hour Award - Janelle Cameron of  Wetaskiwin, Alberta
5,000 Hour Award

Janelle Cameron of  Wetaskiwin, Alberta with Mr. Peppy’s Bonanza, Betarocknrumble, Goodtimebootscootin, and Elko.

Each one of my horses has taught me something different. That’s one of the cool things about horses and getting to ride so many different ones. 

I have lots of good memories but I think it’s neat to look back at where I was 5,000 hours ago and compare it to now; I’ve come a long way not only in my horsemanship but in my life as well. 

I am an equestrian strength and performance coach and owner of Optimize Your Ride. I look forward to taking what I’ve learned in my formal education in Kinesiology and what my horses have taught me to helping other riders become the best partners they can be to their horses!

2500 Hour Award - Anne Lewis from Coalhurst, Alberta.
2,500 Hour Award

Anne Lewis of Coalhurst, Alberta with Zans Golden Ruler aka “Simon”

My first horse was an American Quarter Horse and I have stuck with the breed ever since. I love the look and versatility of them. Trail riding is my passion. Living in southern Alberta, winter means indoor riding with the occasional coulee ride on a warm day. I take dressage lessons and clinics when available. I live a hour away from the Rocky Mountains. Waterton Lakes National Park and Castle Provincial Park offer trails galore to explore and camp.

500 Hour Awards
Wyatt Hallock with ONLYHOTTILLMIDNIGHT from Ontario
Karen Krueger with DF Jackpot aka "Mazer" from Stanley, Manitoba
Becky Green with Peppered Playmate & Skipped My Pepper from Hay Lakes, Alberta
All Breed Division
2,500 Hour Award - Lena Kronschnabl of Thorsby, Alberta, Canada

2,500 Hour Award – Lena Kronschnabl
 with Juanna Lil Red Rose, Snoopys Black Juan, Snaps Bully girl from
Thorsby, Alberta

All of my horses mean the world to me as I love them to pieces! Each one has his own personality, and not all of them are way to handle. They work extremely well for me and I am so happy friends trusted me and gave me the opportunity to own them. As part of the Horseback Riding Program, I love the gifts and getting my own mail, plus it is really interesting how many hours I spend with the horses! In the future, I want to compete in our amateur rodeos, high school rodeos and our local junior rodeos as I do barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, ribbon roping, breakaway roping and started to team rope (heeling). 

2,500 Hour Award - Karen Shannon of Alberta

2,500 Hour Award – Karen Shannon with Boomer and Sexsmith, from Alberta

Boomer is a truly unique Paint Appaloosa, exhibiting both the pinto markings and a spotted blanket on his hips. Riding is a life-long passion for me. During the winter, I find Boomer in the pasture, put on a hackamore, climb on something, and Boomer moves over so I can get on. We will continue our HBR journey, riding the trails together, perhaps for another 2000 hours.

Canadians at the 2022 Run For A Million in Las Vegas

CQHA’s 2nd Vice President, Brad Bowie was the voice of the 2022 Run For a Million, presented by Teton Ridge, the richest event in the history of Reining.

When he wasn’t keeping the crowed entertained and informed from the announcer’s booth or hanging out with the best reiners in the world along with some of the cast and crew of Taylor Sheridan’s hit show Yellowstone, he found the time to talk with a couple of the Canadians at the event who were there competing.

CQHA is pleased to present the following interviews with:

Danny Tremblay originally from Quebec is an NRHA Million Dollar Rider, past winner of the Run For a Million Shoot Out, and Run For a Million qualifier who’s clients have won the non pro at the event two years in a row now.

Jade Whitemarsh hales from Alberta and is coming home with some bragging rights after scoring a 216.50 to secure 6th place in the TRFAM Non Pro Championships with North Sail Solitaire a 2013 Canadian bred  stallion by Topsail Whiz and out of Solitary Gunner by  Colonels Smoking Gun. Jade and the family raised chestnut earned a purse of $5,208.88USD for their run.

2022 Nith River Round Up’s Shannon Adams Memorial Roping

Submitted by Dani and Chad Beechey, Hosts and Organizers.
 
While it may have been dusty, one thing is clear… we had an awesome weekend at NR Round Up for our Shannon Adams Memorial Roping.
 
We had a total of 770 breakaway, tie down and team roping runs over the weekend, and a lively Saturday night dinner & dance with an awesome band (Paul Wainwright & The Book Ends) to round out a beautiful weekend on the ranch under the stars, followed by an outstanding cowboy breakfast on the back lawn on the Sunday morning .
 
We put the spotlight on brand new ropers once again this year with our Green as Grass Breakaway Class (slower stock) and our Green as Grass Team Roping Class (where you partner a brand new roper with a seasoned volunteer to rope slower stock). We also had a really competitive tie down class, awesome ladies breakaway, incredible youth breakaway, open & open 3D breakaway and a really fun 3 Round Progressive Team Roping on the Sunday to finish off the weekend!
 
But for us, the most meaningful number of the weekend (and the one we are most proud of) is that WE RAISED *$7000* for the Juravinski Cancer Centre inmemory of Shannon Adams. Shannon was a shining light that lives on in her beautiful kids. We hope in some small way this money helps Juravinski to continue to advance the amazing work they do in the battle with cancer. This money raised came from a variety of places; every roper donated (in lieu of arena fees/ office fees), we held an awesome 2 day silent auction, and sold ballots for draw prizes. Additionally many people straight up donated to this great cause.
 
This entire event could not have happened without our INCREDIBLE sponsors always in our corner and the army of volunteers who made it happen through sweat, dust and smiles. Thank you to each one of you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you to every roper who came and all who supported this weekend! Whether it was helping with timers, running the stripping chute, donating to the silent auction or problem solving wherever needed. 
 
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! ♥️
Dani & Chad

Results:

Over $14,000 was paid out in the RAO Progressive on Sunday!

Alberta Quarter Horse Launches New Youth Program for 2022

New Alberta Youth Quarter Horse Association  Initiative for 2022

Do you know an Alberta youth that has been wanting to try showing at QHAA shows that has never showed at them before?

Yes? Well the QHAA has the answer! They have developed a program just for them!


Alberta Youth Quarter Horse Association (AYQHA) and Quarter Horse Association of Alberta (QHAA) is offering a new program for youth that have never showed at QHAA shows but want to give it a try.

One selected youth per show in the 2022 show year will be selected to have show fees covered by QHAA and to be connected with a trainer (chosen by AYQHA and QHAA). The youth will get two lessons from that trainer and will get stalled with the trainer at the show. The trainer will help the youth out as much as they can at the show. The youth will be responsible for having own transportation, accommodations, tack and proper show clothes.


Interested youth can become eligible by submitting a video or written essay explaining what this opportunity means to them and what their goals are in the horse industry. The youth will also provide a video of them riding the horse they wish to show.

For more information please email ayqha.info@gmail.com .
Please note*

    • This is not open for any previous youth of AYQHA.
    • To show in AQHA classes the horse must be a registered quarter horse.
    • Youth must have a valid AQHA membership as well as a QHAA (AYQHA) membership this is at the expense of the youth.
    • To show in all breed classes no registration or AQHA membership is required, however QHAA membership is.

Selected youth will be told what show they get to attend, Canadian National Quarter Horse Show is not one of the options. Please understand that this is a one time opportunity, one a youth has been selected, they may not be considered again.
