Annual Membership Meeting & Awards Banquet

Please join us each year for one of the most important benefits of membership in the North Carolina Quarter Horse Association:  the Annual Year End Awards Banquet where members receive a host of awards and prizes.   

All members, their families and friends are encouraged to attend and celebrate the achievements of open, Level 1, rookies, amateurs, youth and their equine partners.  Participants enjoy a fabulous sit down meal; a photographer is available for picture taking along with a fun photo booth and a DJ makes certain everyone is up on their feet!    

On the day of the event, members can participate in youth and amateur planning sessions, as well as attend the General Membership meeting where leaders review the financial state of the association, elect new officers, and share information about the upcoming horse show season.  The 2017 Banquet hosted 204 members, exhibitors, families and friends.  It is a day full of information, team building and fun. 

During the 2017 Annual Awards Banquet, the North Carolina Quarter Horse Association awarded 128 Champion and 89 Reserve Champion prizes to participants in individual classes offered during 2016.  In addition, Champions and Reserve Champions were also recognized in the All Around events, as High Points Award winners, the No Bling Circuit, the Equestrians with Disabilities classes and the Small Fry events.  Over $35,000 in awards and prizes were distributed during the evening.   

Everyone present experienced a great time with fellow horse people who share the same bond; a love of the American Quarter Horse.
