2011 AQHA convention: Entertainment and farm tours
January 14, 2011
During the 2011 AQHA Convention, March 4-7, Paul Bogart will be singing, and a tour offers a look at six horse farms.
Attendees will need dancing and walking boots for the 2011 AQHA Convention. That’s because AQHA member and country music singer Paul Bogart will be providing the post-awards banquet dancing music on Saturday, March 5. The next day, AQHA is offering a day-long tour of six horse farms to convention attendees.
AQHA member and exhibitor Paul Bogart has his feet firmly planted in two worlds that he loves: American Quarter Horses and country music. And on Saturday, March 5, he’s bringing his music to the 2011 AQHA Convention in a post-awards banquet concert for all convention attendees. So make sure you get convention registration and hotel reservations made by the Feb. 2 cut-off date.
The farm tours on Sunday, March 6, include:
• Green Valley Ranch in Aubrey, owned by Wallis and Jane Winegar and home to reining stallions Master Snapper and Chocolate Chic Olena
• Valor Farm in Pilot Point, owned by AQHA Past President Clarence Scharbauer and home to the 1987 Kentucky Derby winner, Alysheba
