APRIL 18-22, 2018
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
NEW TO 2018, QUALIFICATION RULES FOR THE NOVICE CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW HAVE CHANGED!!
PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR NEW GUIDELINES FROM AQHA:
If you’re a Level 1 or Rookie exhibitor, you no longer have to qualify to compete at the AQHA Level 1 Championships. Beginning with the 2018 events, all Level 1- and Rookie-eligible exhibitors are welcome to compete at one of the three Level 1 Championships.
To be eligible to enter the 2018 Level 1 Championship, an exhibitor must:
•Be Level 1 eligible in the class they wish to enter as of January 1, 2017.
•Be an AQHA member at the time of entry and at the time of the 2018 Level 1 Championships.
•If a competitor graduated out of Level 1 in the 2017 show season, he or she is still invited to enter the event.
•If you have won a class at a Level 1 Championships, you cannot show in that same class at future Level 1 Championships, including the 2018 Level 1 Championships. However, you can still show in that class at AQHA shows (excluding the Level 1 Championships) until you meet the point level. You can still show at the Level 1 Championships in any other class(es) for which you are still Level 1-eligible. Learn more about AQHA Rule SHW245.3 in the AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations.
Level 1 eligibility is determined on a class-by-class basis. Exhibitors are encouraged to use the online level verification system at www.aqha.com/leveling to determine if they are Level 1-eligible in a particular class.
