AQHA- Amatuer member or General Member

I am going to become a lifetime member of the AQHA so I don't have to keep paying money every year. I am training my own horse but no one elses. Can someone explain the difference in classes for open verses amateur?

a general member is just a member. An Amateur is what you need if you want to compete.

As long as you aren't being paid to train or instruct you can get an amateur card.

Only the life time membership comes with the general..... it seems then I would have to show open if I don't get an amateur card.

I would call and ask someone at the office. You do not want an opien card if you are not a trainer. It will limit your classes that you can go into. I think who ever said a genral is not for competting is right but it is the same price as and amiture so maby they just do not have it listed. Deffantly call.

live for the moment.

AQHA has some dumb rules. It would be too easy just to remove amateur from a card renewal...lol
