The South Carolina Quarter Horse Association is an affiliate of the AQHA which serves to promote and encourage American Quarter Horse ownership and participation throughout the state of South Carolina.
2021 is here and as we reflect back on 2020, it was a year that no one will forget. SCQHA's members/supporters stayed positive, and with missing only one show, ended the year with a bang by growing from prior years.
Moving into 2021, we have put a new innovative team together to offer larger shows, great prizes, and a welcoming atmosphere. With these changes, we are excited to have Nichole Veasey as the 2021 AQHA certified Show Manager to guide the association's shows into a new era.
With the unprecedented numbers through 2020 and the beginning of 2021, SCQHA is excited to have a partnership with the SC Equine Park. They continuously accommodate the Association with great assistance from Mike Mathis (and his team) working tirelessly at every show. This year you will see the SC Equine Park Chairman, Tamera Flinn around at the shows too.
We hope that you enjoy the shows and membership with SCQHA. If you have any questions or wish to provide any feedback to us, please feel free to contact us by email at email@example.com.
