The purpose of the WIFQHA is to provide a NOT-FOR-PROFIT organization for the promotion of the Foundation Quarter Horse and encourage the registration of the Foundation Quarter Horse in the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry (fqhr.net). In order for a horse to be considered for registration, 75% of his pedigree must trace back to the original 27,000 horses registered with the American Quarter Horse Association. No Thoroughbred may be closer than the fourth generation of the horse that is being registered. The intent, in addition to the above, is to provide an environment and atmosphere to show the abilities of ranch horses and for families and youth to learn and grow through friendship and leadership.
Exhibitors and their horses may arrive Friday evening.
Please go to the Membership tab on this website. Print out the 2022 WIFQHA Membership form and mail it to the WIFQHA Treasurer address on the form. WIFQHA memberships run from January through December. Fill the form out completely because this is where we get the information to communicate with you.
Our association is affiliated with the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry (FQHR), not Foundation Quarter Horse Association (FQHA). The important difference is there is a history of organized shows with Foundation Quarter Horse Registry judges. The Registry collects the placings from affiliated shows and keeps track of points for Register of Merit (ROM) awards. So make sure you get your horse registered with FQHR and then get yourself an FQHR membership so you can show your horse in the Foundation classes at the Wisconsin shows.
FQHR membership is necessary for all exhibitors who want to compete in FQHR classes and have an FQHR registered horse. The FQHR membership runs from when you register to 12 months later. You receive a membership card with expiration date from FQHR. Youth require a youth membership to compete in youth FQHR classes. Youth also require an open or amateur card if they wish to compete in any open or amateur FQHR classes, this includes conformation classes which are all in the open category except for the two youth classes. Payment for FQHR membership is available on their website www.fqhr.net
