AQHA West Level 1 Championships Exercise Schedule

Class Schedule

updated May 9

Schedule Change

On Tuesday May 14 for the 2024 AQHA L1 West Championship show, the Rookie Youth Ranch Trail and the L1 Youth Ranch Trail have been moved to the Preifert Arena following the L1 Youth Stake Race. There is only one entry in the Youth Stake Race. Should this cause any conflicts with other classes, management will work with exhibitors to be accommodating. The Amateur Ranch Trail classes will remain as scheduled in the Main Arena.
This change was made due to a very late estimated completion time for the Ranch Trail classes to do the overwhelmingly positive number of entries!

Please Note: due to a lack of entries, the Working Hunter, Equitation over Fences and Jumping classes at the Pinnacle Circuit and AQHA L1 West Championship have been cancelled. Both shows will continue to offer Hunter Hack classes.

About the AQHA L1 West Championships

The AQHA Level 1 Championships feature walk-trot, Rookie and Level 1 classes. The shows offer a variety of events and activities for competitors, friends, family and spectators to take part in throughout the show, including free Ride the Pattern clinics taught by AQHA Professional Horsemen. The Level 1 Championships are intended for exhibitors to learn and grow in the show arena while sharpening their horsemanship skills. The shows provide a welcoming environment for AQHA members to be showcased in a championship arena and to compete to earn top prizes for their dedication.

Exhibitors who choose to show at both AQHA Level 1 Championship shows cannot compete in the same classes at each event.
