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/Regional Affiliates.
Currently, the AQHA annually allocates 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 Grant funding to the Provincial and Regional AQHA Affiliates and other events that use AQHA horses to financially assist them in achieving these AQHA objectives in Canada using the Category criteria listed below.
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.
There are Three (3) Categories eligible for Grant Funding as set out by AQHA for 2020-2021:
- Category 1: Education/Clinics
- Category 2: Competition/Use – Funds not to be utilized for AQHA shows with greater than 100 entries (1 entry is a horse and rider combo per class entered)
- Category 3: Marketing & Membership Outreach
