Attention all novice and rookie exhibitors!  The Ontario Quarter Horse Association is once again hosting a novice show weekend that starts off with a clinic day on Saturday May 9th, followed by an AQHA/OQHA All Novice Rookie Youth and Amateur Show.

This Novice/Rookie show is the perfect level of competition for beginners and open show exhibitors who would like the opportunity to come out to an AQHA approved show.  The purpose of this show is to reach out to AQHA members of all ages and riding levels.  We offer true entry-level classes in hopes of introducing new and current members who have maybe never shown at an AQHA show, or have limited showing at this level.

Novice/Rookie competitors may compete with a horse that he or she does not own at this show, which allows an excellent opportunity for individuals who are have access to a registered quarter horse, but not necessarily own.

Saturday May 9th will be a clinic and demonstration day.  OQHA has a number of AQHA professional Horsemen and Women as well as AQHA judges who will be offering clinics and mentoring to help the participants better prepare themselves for the upcoming show season.  Clinics and demonstrations will be targeted towards AQHA, however is open to all breeds.  Cost is $25 per person, and you are encouraged to bring your horse, or feel free to come as a moderator.

Sunday May 10th is a full AQHA Novice/Rookie AQHA show. Seasoned Amateur and Youth exhibitors will be offering a mentorship program, and will be able to help the exhibitors with anything from banding to registration and even helping calm those horse show jitters.

This show will be a great learning opportunity and offers the exhibitors a more relaxed, fun and less intimidating AQHA show experience.

  • Stalls are available at a cost of $50 for the weekend
  • Shavings – $7 per bag
  • $50 All In show fees  (allows unlimited entries for one horse)
