Each year, the Ohio Quarter Horse Association approves shows around Ohio to count toward year-end awards, Ohio’s NYATT team and Ohio’s Youth World Show team. Weekday shows do not count toward year-end points unless they fall on a national holiday. Show management has the option of holding some classes the Friday before their approved weekend show dates per AQHA rules. Those classes held on the prior day will be approved for OQHA points.
OQHA Point Season
OQHA’s point season for year-end awards is March 1st through September 30th of each year. Please note that both horse owners and exhibitors must be current OQHA members in order to accumulate points for year-end awards in open, amateur, novice amateur and amateur select classes. For youth, only the exhibitor must be a current OQHA member.
World Show Point Season
The American Quarter Horse Association Youth World Championship Show Team point period is March 1st through May 31st. Each youth’s ten best shows during the point period will be calculated to determine team members. For more information about the AQHYA World Show Team, please click here.
NYATT Point Season
The Congress National Youth Activity Team point period is March 1st through July 31st. Each youth’s ten best shows during the point period will be calculated to determine team members. For more information about the NYATT Team, please click here.
