The WAQHA is a non profit organisation, run for the benefit of members.
We are a group of dedicated horse lovers whose aims are to promote, foster and encourage the development of the Australian Quarter Horse in the state of Western Australia. We are affiliated with the Australian Quarter Horse Association and with their assistance we aim to develop public interest in this wonderful breed of horse Australia wide. We also aim to promote our youth and amateurs.
We conduct shows, competitions and exhibitions of Quarter Horses and Appendix Quarter Horses at regular intervals during the year. The AQHA co-ordinates competitions all over Australia culminating with the huge National Championships held in Sydney each year. The shows involve many disciplines, such as Halter, Showmanship, Western Pleasure, Trail, Reining and English events such as Hunter Under Saddle.
The AQHA also maintains a studbook, which keeps a record of all registered Quarter Horses. Pedigrees are available from the AQHA for a modest fee.
WAQHA MISSION STATEMENT DEVELOPED FROM AQHA

To develop diverse educational programs, materials and curriculum that will assist our Members.
To generate growth of WAQHA membership via the marketing, promotion, advertising and the publicity of the Australian Quarter Horse and WAQHA.
The WAQHA is run purely by volunteers who give up their time to keep the club running at its best. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
