OQHA PROMOTIONAL CLUBS Preamble: The cost and time required for hauling horses is making it more and more difficult for the small horse owner to travel the OQHA show circuit.
The Promotional Club concept will offer to all registered Quarter Horse owners the opportunity to show within their area of residence and once again enjoy showing their horses with a minimum of expense and travel time.
The OQHA formally recognizes the following Promotional Clubs in Ontario:
Area #l Quarter Horse Promotional Association OQHA
Area #2 Promotional Club OQHA
Area #3 Promotional Club OQHA
Area #4 Promotional Club OQHA
Area #5 Promotional Club OQHA
Area #6 Promotional Club OQHA
Area #7 Promotional Club
Area boundary lines are to be as established by the current OQHA Constitution. Members of Promotional Clubs shall be encouraged to be members of the OQHA, however, they shall not be required to be members. Directors of Promotional Clubs must be members of the OQHA. To be recognized, each Promotional Club must abide by the Constitution of the OQHA (where applicable). Any OQHA show may be approved for points by two Promotional Clubs providing approval is granted by both Promotional clubs involved. Each Promotional Club is responsible for acquiring and tabulating its own points. It is recommended that should the exhibitor and/or owner of a horse reside in an area where the Promotional Club is not active with a Year End Awards Program, that they apply to a bordering Promotional Club in order to be eligible to receive year end awards of that club.
