Outside Circle: AQHA extends reduced fee registrations, schools, clinics, event series
My heart goes out to the folks in the paths of the wildfires and tornadoes in Oklahoma and Texas this past week. They were horrendous and there was so much damage, livestock lost, and structures wiped out. Please keep those folks in your prayers as they try to get back on their feet again.
The AQHA has extended their older horse discounted registration program. For $170 you can register any eligible horse two years and over, with proper paperwork and DNA. This is sure a good opportunity to get them registered, especially if you’re going to sell or breed a horse.
The Annual Harding County Bulldogging School for junior high and high school students will be held at the All Seasons Arena, Bowman, N.D., on April 15-16. It’s 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, at no cost. If you have questions or want to sign up, call Colt Floyd at 605-645-1005.
