AQHA West Level 1 Championships Ride the Pattern Clinics

From The American Quarter Horse Association

AQHA Professional Horsemen from around the country are teaming up to provide free Ride the Pattern clinics at the AQHA Level 1 championships.

During the clinics, AQHA Professional Horsemen show the audience how they would complete a specific pattern from that show.

For the 2019 AQHA West Level 1 Championships, the times, clinicians and locations of the Ride the Pattern clinics will be posted in the show office.

During the clinics, donations will be accepted from the audience for the AQHA Professional Horsemen’s Crisis Fund. The crisis fund helps professionals in times of need, arising from sudden and demonstrable hardship or disaster of a severe and unexpected nature or from serious physical illness. AQHA Professional Horsemen truly appreciate your generosity by donating to the crisis fund and look forward to seeing you at the Ride the Pattern clinics at this year’s show!
