You need to not only be an AQHA member but you also need to have an AQHA Youth ameteur card so that you can show so you'll want to see what type of membership you have, if it's general or ameteur. (sorry about my spelling).
You can go to AQHA.com and log in to see the show schedules and then there should also be a Kentucky AQHA site as well and if you want to gain points at your state level you'll have to be a member of their org too.
As for where will you fit in, you will be a limited rider in all skill sets and will be elidgeable for the Rookie Youth Division, the Novice Youth Division, the Ameteur Youth (competition will be much stronger in that class) etc.
Your age group will be 14-18. If you do a Youth class then it's all ages under 18.
Does that help?

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
