Due to circumstances beyond her control, Frances Jones has had to cancel the July, August and September challenges scheduled at her Sugarfoot Ranch. Red River Horsemen have agreed to host the July 19, 2014 challenge. It will be held at the Lazy J Ranch in Linden, TX. Please check the events page for more details.
A change was made in the rulebook regarding year end high point awards. In the past we recognized the high point horse/rider team and the high point rider in each division. In most cases the same rider won both high point awards in their division. It was decided to drop the high point rider award. For 2014 AHCA will recognize the top ten horse/rider teams in each division. AHCA will again host a pizza party at the Nationals to recognize the high point recipients.. To accomplish this we need to have all 2014 challenges completed and results submitted by Oct 6. Memberships must be current and all horses must be registered to be eligible for year-end awards.
We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Montana Silversmith. MSS has an excellent reputation in the industry for quality of workmanship and dependability.

MSS is the only buckle maker authorized to use the AHCA logo. Buckles must be ordered through AHCA. We are very excited to have Montana Silversmith as a sponsor for the 2014 National Finals buckles.
