FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AQHA Novice Championship State Qualifying in Kentucky
(March 1, 2013) - Several qualifying methods exist for competitors seeking an invitation to the 2013 AQHA Novice Championship shows. These include showing at 20 shows in a Novice Class, placing in the top 10 in a Novice class at an AQHA Regional Championship Show, and "state qualifying" through the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association's Novice Championship State Qualifying process.
Paul Coffey, KyQHA President, said "the state qualifying process established by the KyQHA is meant to supplement the opportunity to qualify via those established by the AQHA." He went on to say, "Kentucky residents must be members of the KyQHA, and nominate for the Year-End High Point Awards Program. The recent announcement that there is no longer a fee for the Awards Program gives Kentucky residents a 'one-stop' process of not only gaining a no cost access to the Awards Program, but also ensuring that they will be considered for state qualifying for the Novice Championships if you qualify and are interested in attending the Novice Championship shows either in Murfreesboro, Tennessee or Las Vegas, Nevada."

Because leveled AQHA shows were developed based on programming with the new AQHA system, and because AQHA announced that it is NOT in the best interest of AQHA members to implement the new computer system at this time, no leveled shows/classes will be offered. Show managers who were planning to offer leveled classes are being instructed to please reconfigure their show bills to reflect conventional AQHA classes. Those shows that held leveled classes will be worked by hand to ensure exhibitors receive the proper number of points based on the rules of leveling.
In order to be eligible for an award, all owners, breeders, foal nominators, sire owners, and sire nominators of KyQHA BIF eligible horses must be members in good standing of the American Quarter Horse Association and the Kentucky Quarter Horse Association as of July 1 of the payout year (example: by July 1, 2013 you must be an AQHA and KyQHA member in good standing for awards earned in program year 2012).
NO MEMBERSHIP NOTIFICATIONS WILL BE POSTED, MAILED OR OTHERWISE COMMUNICATED; ALL RESPONSIBILITY TO HOLD REQUIRED MEMBERSHIPS RESTS WITH THOSE ANTICIPATING AN AWARD.
