At this stage qualifying criteria will be reinstated for 2022 National Finals.

Dear ABHA Members, Affiliates, Volunteers and Lovers of Barrel racing,

The 2021 Equitana Qualifiers are in full swing and already have some big name competitors qualifiered.

We are excited to announce the addition of Nicole McDonald as the acting secretary/treasurer to the ABHA. We would like to thank Suzie Dicks for all her voluntary time as temporary secretary/treasurer and look forward to having Suzie back in the directors seat. 

The ABHA is wishing everyone a safe and Happy Easter as we all get ready for our Easter weekend events - be sure to checkout our calendar for an event near you. 

Until next Time  

Cathy Reean
