Lectures and Demonstrations

From the beginning, one of the main missions of the All American Quarter Horse Congress has been to provide knowledge and guidance about all aspects of care, management, ownership and competition with the registered American Quarter Horse. That tradition continues with a full schedule of lectures and demonstrations, provided by the industry’s leading professionals from horse trainers to veterinarians.
