Several years ago, SQHA was trying to find a way to help provide youth with an introductory show experience. Something not just for youth with a registered American Quarter Horse, something not too expensive, that provided them with the chance to compete in a show environment. What we came up with was the Grass Roots Division. Criteria for this division is as follows:
♦ For youth 18 years of age & under who have not previously won any points at a breed show.
♦ May show any breed of registered or non-registered horse
It's as simple as that! Five Grass Roots classes are offered:
♦ Hunter Under Saddle
♦ Western Pleasure
♦ Western Horsemanship
Classes are offered at all circuits.
