I would seriously think before getting a membership with these guys. I became a member a few years ago when I had my QH. It was the biggest mistake I'd ever made. The magazine that comes in is a waste of moneyas it is nothing but advertizements, I constantly received junk mail AND even after I cancelled my membership they continued to send me JUNK. To this day 2 years later, and after having called them on 3 separate occasions, they still continue to send me garage and I get 2 request a month in the mail with a renewal invoice to renew my membership which I had clearly stated I didn't want anything. I also made the mistake to give them my email at one point so if mail wasn't enough, I get those same membership renewals by email and I dont have the option to unsubscribe.

I would seriouisly evaluate your need for that membership because they will never leave you alone.

Iam a lifetime member of AQHA- and have been for the past 15 years. My experience has always been positive. I was a very active AQHA member as a youth- competing at recognized shows, World/Congress, and was active within my state association (Youth VP, Wrangler All Star, IL QH Queen). I think the programs they have for youth are really good.

I currently train and breed as a hobby- and most of my interaction now involves registration and transfers of ownership. Showing is not for everyone and I am glad to see AQHA reaching out to newer members with new DVDs like their "Fundamentals of Horsemanship" with La Cense Ranch in MT. Professional Horseman Jeff Griffith is a good friend of ours- and a very talented horseman. He runs one of the best colt-starting clinics anywhere- and helps people start several hundred horses under saddle per year. He is the real deal.

The QH Journal (magazine you may be referring to) was completely reformatted earlier last year in response to member request and now has articles in halter, ranching, speed, pattern, and there are a lot of articles with trainers. Please remember that one of the primary purposes of the magazine is to display status of leading point earners/leading sires in the nation and to recognize everything from World Championship winners- down to people who have achieved Superiors or champion status with their horses. It is also a good way to stay current with trends in breeding, if you are not in a big show barn and on top of the scene.

I have visited and spoken with the folks down in Amarillo many, many times over the course of the years. I always find them very helpful and pleasant to deal with- seriously some of the best customer service I have ever encountered in my life. I would strongly encourage you to call them and share your frustrations- and I am certain they would be able to help you out.

Regarding giving out your email...I initially signed up, but later was able to contact the server and remove my email from the list. I found that I check AQHA's website often enough that I did not need the email updates and also that it is quite easy to navigate their website on my own.

I am truly sorry that you feel that you had such a negative experience. I can honestly say that has never been my experience in the least. I would strongly encourage QH owners to get involved with AQHA...especially youth. They have a lot of neat programs out there.

I'm a year to year member but I don't get the Journal. I do get "America's Horse" magazine and find it very informative. I never get junk mail from them so I guess it all goes to CacheDawnTaxes (LOL)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I actually look forward to my QH Journal and my Americas Horse magazines...
