Our AQHA International Judge, Lucy Adams, will hold a clinic at SNEC on Saturday 25 June 2022. This gives those attending an opportunity to work with the judge BEFORE the show to gain an insight into what the standard is for the various classes and what the judge will be looking for on show day. The holding of a judge led pre-show clinic has been sanctioned by AQHA in order to encourage members and non-members alike to take part in Western riding and gain a greater understanding of the art of showing your horse in competition. AQHA-UK are grateful to AQHA for this relaxation of their rules to allow the clinic to be led by the judge and for their continued support and commitment to all of us in Scotland in helping to promote both the Quarter Horse breed and the American Quarter Horse Association.
Entries to the clinic are strictly limited and places will be allocated on a first come (and fully paid), first served (and booked) basis. If the clinic is over-subscribed a waiting list will be formed, again based on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately, no refund of the clinic fee is available for cancellation of entry unless the place can be taken by an individual on the waiting list or, in the event of there being no persons remaining on the waiting list, by a substitute identified by the person withdrawing. The entry fee for the clinic is £80 and must accompany the clinic entry form.
All riders and competitors who are not AQHA-UK members will be required to pay a weekend membership fee of £10, this will cover the pre-show clinic and the show, for those doing both. If a competitor subsequently joins AQHA-UK within 2 months as a member they will receive a £10 discount on their membership fee. Please note that only fully paid up members of AQHA-UK will be eligible for the AQHA-UK Youth and Amateur Hi Point Awards at the show.
