The celebration is slated for Friday and Saturday, August 13-14.

The current objectives for Grant funding 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.
