Hello everyone!

Hope you all have some horse plans for the holiday weekend, hopefully those plans include family and friends, as well. It's hot here in Arizona, so we plan on drinking tons of water at the barn and all the time we spend outside, too.

Please remember to honor all of the brave men and women who have served and are serving in our armed forces. They are the reason for our freedom!

Here's a link to a great video from AQHA that covers the latest information on EHV-1, World Show information, Select World Show point information and more! Did you know there's a military discount for the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and Museum? Check out the details in this video!
