The NHQHA Recreation Program would like to thank all participants for such a great year thus far! We are very excited with the involvement of members and non-members alike in our Blackwater Trail Ride, two trail workshops, and the AQHA Judged Trail Challenge. The Judged Trail Challenge on August 31 was a great success with members and non-members coming together to compete on a 9 obstacle course. The course was fun yet challenging with obstacles ranging from a water crossing with a bridge, to a triple curtain of terror as well as a noodle car wash walk through. Youth and Adults were able to compete in a variety of classes ranging from training (beginner level) through master level in both AQHA and All-Breed. We also offered an in-hand class for those wanting a little extra practice on the ground to complete their course. NHQHA is excited for the 2014 year and hopes to host more events like these in the future.
