Tack Swap is BACK at our January Show!
Our popular Tack Swap is back at our show on January 24th at the Travis County Expo Center.
Bring all your unwanted horse related stuff to sell. You will need to supervise and work your
“booth” the entire day (or until you sell everything!). Set-up for the Tack Swap starts at 8 AM and
you must be completely ready to sell before the show starts at 9 AM. Cars and trucks will only be
allowed under the arena roof for unloading purposes, so you’ll need to have tables or racks to
display your items. Only CAQHA Members or Sponsors can sell at our Tack Swap. So, all you
need to do to participate is become a member of CAQHA! Membership forms will be available at
the show and are also available on our website – Some of our AWESOME vendors
will also be there with great horsey things and exhibitor bling to start your New Year off right!
In-Hand Trail Class in 2015!
By popular request we are offering an In-Hand Trail class! The rules are: No cross-over
allowed for horses shown in In-Hand Trail. Any horse shown in In-Hand Trail cannot be shown
in any riding class at the show. In-Hand Trail horses can be any age, any breed. If entries
warrant at each show, In-Hand Trail Class may be divided by age division of horses entered
and ribbons awarded accordingly. In-Hand Trail classes will not count toward Daily or Series
High Point Awards in any division.
We had a blast at our 2014

We LOVE our
AQHA Rule Changes
issue #, date
The following rule changes are in effect for AQHA Shows
in 2015. Only the following rule will be in effect at our
CAQHA All Breed Open Shows:
Ranch Riding (formerly Ranch Pleasure): Beginning
January 2015, Ranch Horse Pleasure is being renamed
Ranch Riding. The rules remain the same.
The rule below regarding the use of approved helmets in
youth English classes is voluntary at our CAQHA Shows.
Helmet Rule for Youth Exhibitors: Starting in 2015, youth
exhibitors will be required to wear an ASTM/SEI-approved
hard hat with harness when competing at any AQHAapproved show in an English class, including flat and overfences classes. The hard hat requirement will be an
amendment to Rule SHW320.2 in the Official Handbook of
Rules and Regulations. “Exhibitor safety is a paramount
concern at AQHA-approved events,” said AQHA President
Johne Dobbs of Champaign, Illinois. “This amendment solely
affects the youth division, and in so many other sporting
events, youth wear safety helmets, so this really is about
safety first,” Dobbs added.
Because our CAQHA Shows are ALL Breed Open Shows and
we do not offer AQHA classes, we will not require youth to
wear ASTM/SEI-approved helmets. However, we strongly
encourage all exhibitors to wear approved helmets when
riding. You will find many of our exhibitors - youth and adults wearing approved helmets in our classes. We welcome
cowboy hats and helmets at our CAQHA Shows!!
