Volunteers With Hearts Of Gold - One Of The Many Treasures Of Our World!!

Volunteers with hearts of gold - one of the many treasures of our World!! Volunteers were many… they would step up to the gate and fill in when needed. You could find stockmen doing jobs such as helping "out back" sorting cattle and flagging the roping to name a few. Other volunteers handed out ribbons, helped with paperwork in the show office and/or maybe were found bringing food to other volunteers and as any good volunteer does…without needing to be asked first. In the WFQHA, we are blessed with so many wonderful people!! Whether it was just for a short while or throughout the entire week, your contributions were greatly appreciated!! Volunteers, you know who you are…Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Your WFQHA family takes our hats off to you on a job well done.

World Show "Traditions of Family, Friends & Foundation Quarter Horses" Camaraderie At It's Finest!!

At the WFQHA, it makes a heart happy to see the many displays of positive sportsmanship displayed between exhibitors. We truly have the best exhibitors in the world showcasing their WFQHA registered horses at the World Show!! It's pretty exciting to see when fellow exhibitors are helping with tack changes, lending a rulebook to their neighbor that's horseback next to them and/or helping turn back cattle when needed. These are just a few of the many personal reasons why members keep wanting to come back to the WFQHA World Show. In a world where folks are busy making a living, raising their families and of course their Foundation Quarter Horses…it's gratifying to know that many of our new members feel that they have stepped back in time to a simpler lifestyle just like the good ole days. For the members who keep coming back year after year, we salute you, thank you for leading by example, exemplifying the finest in camaraderie. The World Show week is truly a wonderful atmosphere where WFQHA Foundation Quarter Horse Breeders, Competitors and Enthusiasts come together because of these multi-talented equine athletes. Everyone goes home knowing they are part of the WFQHA Family!!

The WFQHA website's international broadcasting medium will bring the WFQHA, its Breeders and Competitors the best exposure possible for the WFQHA Foundation Quarter Horse.

We'll still offer these benefits…they'll just be available online in a user-friendly format instead. The WFQHA is exploring a "World Of Possibilities" and in 2006 the WFQHA started exploring some of these newer forms of technology that are proving themselves as being worthy forms of communications while at the same time advertising and marketing in a mass media format.
