2021 AQHA Convention
The American Quarter Horse Association annual convention is a highly anticipated event for AQHA members around the world. The 2021 AQHA Convention is slated for March 18-22 at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio and will be held according to local, state, and federal mandates. All members are invited to attend and can now register online.
After careful discussions with AQHA leadership and key stakeholders, the AQHA Executive Committee has decided to modify the traditional format of the annual convention to host a business format in 2021.
With the cancellation of the 2020 convention, as a result of the coronavirus, AQHA leadership understands the importance of hosting an in-person convention in 2021. AQHA is a member-driven organization, and the modified schedule will allow attendees to focus on business initiatives, including committee and council meetings, reviewing member-submitted rule-change proposals, appointing new AQHA directors and electing the AQHA Executive Committee.
The American Quarter Horse Foundation Board of Trustees, Foundation Council and AQHF made the decision to postpone the annual Hall of Fame Induction, which will recognize the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021.
AQHA is working closely with the Hyatt Hill Country Resort to implement health protocols and guidelines to protect the health and safety of attendees and staff during the 2021 AQHA Convention. The Association will also employ social-distancing protocols during the convention and host events outside when possible. It is important to recognize that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any setting where people are present. More information regarding the health protocols will be released at www.aqha.com/convention.
