The American Quarter Horse Association boasts the largest Breed Registry in the world. Also, AQHA has more members than any other horse association worldwide. In the United States and twenty-four foreign countries AQHA approves more than 3,500 shows per year. Total AQHA horse population worldwide is in excess of 6,800,000, with a membership greater than 820,000. An impressive list of corporate sponsors includes: Ford Motor Co., American Airlines, Buick, Justin Boots, Breyer, MBNA America, Purina Mills, Miller, Wrangler, Tex Tan, Sooner Trailers and many, many others. AQHA’s representative in Western Pennsylvania is the Western Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association. WPQHA is based in Harlansburg, Pa., with our corporate office in Greenville, Pa. The WPQHA is a large, highly successful organization that promotes the American Quarter Horse and the family values of owning and exhibiting horses. This is accomplished through sponsoring AQHA approved Quarter Horse shows, clinics, Youth Team affiliations, Futurities, Youth Scholarship funds, and many other equine related activities. WPQHA sponsors 26 AQHA approved horse shows from May through August each year. WPQHA also rents our Equine Center for an additional 30 events during the same time. These events attract nearly 40,000 entries annually bringing more than 90,000 people to the area having an economic impact on the community of more than $10,000,000.00.

In 2009, other breeds and associations who will utilize our facility include Appaloosa Clubs, Paint Horse Associations, Dressage Organizations, Walking Horse Groups, Riding For The Handicapped, Arabian Associations, National Snaffle-Bit and National Reining Horse Association, Pennsylvania District 4-H Groups for their Events. Our Equine Center features four show and warm-up arenas, separate trail and jump courses, 210 permanent stalls with capability of adding up to an additional 500 portable stalls and over 100 full service camper locations with a modern comfort facility including showers. We have a 70 X 250’ multi-purpose building for showing and housing stalls. The 100 acre site that is the home of WPQHA boasts the finest horse showing arena surfaces anywhere located in a shaded country setting that truly is a vacation attraction throughout the Horse World. WPQHA’s premier event is our Summer Circuit, always in July, with over 10,000 entries each year.

Exhibitors arrive from all areas of the country and Canada to enjoy days of extremely competitive showing, fine shopping, dining, parties, dancing, and the local area we affectionately call “The Burg.” One reason for the huge success of our Summer Circuit is that the dates fall in the last month available to acquire qualifying points for the AQHA World Championship Show. WPQHA has in recent years committed more than a quarter million dollars to improve our facility, making it a much sought after venue to showcase all phases of equine activities. WPQHA is a non-profit organization which utilizes any funds acquired to promote the family values that are a part of owning, riding, showing, breeding, and raising horses in America today. 1997 was the beginning of our Corporate and Personal Sponsorship Program which was a great success both for WPQHA and our sponsors. Corporate support is needed if WPQHA is to continue our progressive approach towards the development of a year round facility which will help give us the ability to promote what we feel is slipping away from Americans: the institution of the family. Review the enclosed forms which explain in further detail WPQHA’s Gold, Silver, and Bronze Corporate and Personal Sponsorship Programs.

It is our hope that you will not only provide financial support but that you will also become an active participant in the activities to which the Western Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association is so committed. We feel it is the nature of the investor to want a return on an investment. WPQHA works very hard to promote our sponsors to each and every person which comes in contact with WPQHA. I am looking forward to speaking with you in the very near future to determine what we can do to help support each other. Thank you for your time and consideration
