Brogan Marie Hill is a recent High School graduate from St. Anthony, Id. She has ridden horses her entire life in and out of the arena, not only casually, but also training for and showing in multiple disciplines. Her love for reining manifest itself when she rode her first reining horse five years ago. Brogan (Bee) is heavily involved in the youth program. She serves as the 2021 Youth President of the Idaho Reining Horse Association and has been the IdRHA Youth year-end high point winner four of the last five years.
Bee was one of the 2018 Recipients of AQHA Ranching Heritage Young Horse Development Program, receiving an AQHA Ranching Heritage bred yearling that she has trained and developed.
Excited to represent our great state of Idaho at the AQHA Youth World show, Brogan with her partner Quik Draw McGraw (QD) are working hard to prepare for tough competition. QD is a 5 year-old buckskin gelding that has earnings in the Idaho Reining Horse Assoc., National Reining Horse Assoc. and the American Stock Horse Assoc.
Let’s all join together to support Brogan and QD!
Addison Burton, from Nampa, is fifteen and a Junior at Vision Charter School. She has ridden since before she could walk, and shown for the past ten years. She has always had a love for horses, and has been around them her entire life.
In 2018, she began showing Crusin, a 2008 bay gelding, and was the 2018 Justin Youth Rookie of the year for Idaho. In years past, she was the High Point Showman in her local horse show club. Addison and Crusin are very excited to be representing Idaho at the AQHA Youth World Show. They will be showing in Halter and Showmanship. Addison thanks her parents and Lorrie Lynne for their support.
The American Quarter Horse Association announces that the 2021 AQHA Select World Championship Show, presented by Adequan® (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), will be held in conjunction with the 2021 Farnam AQHA World Championship Show. The 2021 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World are slated for November 1-20 at the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.
AQHA made several modifications to successfully host AQHA championship shows during an unprecedented year in 2020, including postponing the 2020 Adequan® Select World and hosting the show during the Farnam AQHA World held later in the year. The AQHA Executive Committee and staff are constantly working to improve AQHA events and programs for our members worldwide. 2020 gave our team the opportunity to see first-hand the positive impact of hosting these two prestigious events together. The overwhelming feedback and interest of AQHA Professional Horsemen and Select exhibitors for the events to remain together was also taken into consideration when making the decision to combine these shows again in 2021.
The 2021 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World will also host the Adequan® AQHA Level 2 Championships for amateur and open exhibitors.
AQHA events would not be possible without our accommodating event host locations. We are thankful for the staff at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth who were very helpful when AQHA decided to postpone the show last year to protect the health and safety of our Select exhibitors who fell in the pandemic at-risk age group. We look forward to the opportunity to work with the Will Rogers Memorial Center again for future AQHA events.
Qualifying requirements for the 2021 Farnam AQHA World and Adequan® Select World are being reviewed by staff with the AQHA Show Council, Affiliate Advisory Board and Executive Committee. More details, including qualifying and entry information, will be released at a later date at www.aqha.com/worldshow.
