A Message from our President...

Hello Everyone,

Our show season will start soon so make sure you have your checklist ready and are prepared to get started on making sure you have a safe and happy start to it.

Our Tar Heel Triple Classic will be June 14-17 and it has several changes this year. There will not be a Little Futurity as Larry and Gale have decided to take a bit of a break.  It will be a four day, double pointed (for state points) show with six judges.  There will be a $300 flat fee (including office charge), stalls are $115 for the circuit and the host hotel (Ramada) rates will be the same as last year.  This year our stall/shavings coordinator will be Susan Daniels.  Please give her a call to reserve your stalls and pre order your shavings (919) 894-0600.  For on-going information throughout the year you can visit our website at NCQHA.com.

The Tar Heel Fall Classic will be September 7-9 (pending AQHA approval) this year and will also be double pointed for NCQHA. We will have more information as we finalize more details.

If you did not attend the banquet, we missed you. We hope that you will come join us at our shows for the fun, competition and friendship.

Thank you all for being a member of NCQHA.


Pam Settle
