AQHA CONSIDERING A MOVE TO FORT WORTH

AQHA CONSIDERING MOVING HEADQUARETERS TO FORT WORTH

Feb. 21, 2019

According to a recent press release by Craig Huffhines, AQHA Executive Vice President. of the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), there is a movement to move the association from their long-time home in Amarillo, Texas, to Fort Worth, which seems to be the center of the horse industry.  AQHA’s original headquarters were established in Amarillo; however, their initial meetings organized to form the Association were held in Fort Worth. So why shouldn’t their headquarters be in Fort Worth, Texas, the center of the Quarter Horse industry?

It seems like conversation on this fact has been going on for years. However recently the move has been rekindled, with “key industry stakeholders” trying to raise funds to support the move have accelerated.

Of course, such a move would take a lot of evaluation and economic consideration. But the consideration is becoming a reality as they claim their heightened level of work has temporarily stressed their daily workflow and turn-around time. The release claims their business is in transformation and they look forward to rolling out new member conveniences soon and improving their customer experience.

“AQHA is a business in transformation,” says Huffhines, “and we look forward to rolling out new. member conveniences soon. We remain focused on improving our service levels to a modern expectation and we are excited for you to see these improvements deployed in the coming months. In the meantime we will keep you informed as more information and understanding of this most recent development regarding Fort Worth evolves.”

I guess we will have to keep our eyes and ears honed in on the Internet! It might be smart to write a comment on how you feel about such a move. Who knows, it could help them make up their minds.
