AQHA Moves its Television Initiative to RFD-TV

New innovative programs to air three times weekly

The American Quarter Horse Journal, December 20, 2007 – The American Quarter Horse Association, the industry leader in equestrian television programming, is approaching 30 continuous years of producing educational, lifestyle and competition programs for horse enthusiasts. This commitment continues in 2008, as AQHA moves its weekly television programming endeavors to RFD-TV, beginning January 2. “AQHA Presents . . .” will feature a combination of entertaining and informative shows with the industry’s top trainers, along with classic episodes of past AQHA television programming and competitions from AQHA and its alliance partners’ championship events.

“We’re very excited to showcase the American Quarter Horse lifestyle on RFD-TV because so many AQHA members have satellites and can easily access this growing network,” said Bill Brewer, AQHA Executive Vice President. “This is a tremendous opportunity to also reach the growing segment of people moving to rural areas to pursue their dream of land ownership, and the western and rural lifestyle.”

“AQHA Presents . . .” airs three times weekly – Wednesdays at 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. Eastern. Featured in 2008 will be “AQHA Team Wrangler Presents” – a series of educational and entertaining shows featuring top AQHA Professional Horsemen and Horsewomen, all members of the highly popular AQHA Team Wrangler program. Episodes include:

“What’s it like to . . .” where Team Wrangler members give a one-on-one lesson from their discipline, such as cutting or roping, to a member of the AQHA publications staff

“Trading Saddles” where Team Wrangler members trade places with another member of a different discipline – halter and speed event, western and English

In addition, winners of online contests hosted on AQHA’s Web site, aqha.com, will have Team Wrangler members help with horse issues in “Fix My Horse,” prepping a horse for sale in “Sell My Horse,” and a lucky youth will get guidance in “Makeover My Horse”

Viewers will be treated to “Best of AQHA Events” drawn from the long-running “America’s Horse” series that began in 1986. Emphasis for the episodes will be on record-setting performances, many featuring American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame inductees such as Rugged Lark winning his two Superhorse titles at the AQHA World Championship Show; Jack Brooks winning his fifth, sixth and seventh All American futurities; Dash For Cash winning the Champion of Champions; early National Cutting Horse Association and National Reining Horse Association Futurity and Derby winning runs; trips to Best Remuda Award winning ranches and much more.

Rounding out the year will be coverage of AQHA’s World Championship events including the Ford AQHYA World Championship Show, Bayer Select, Bank of America Amateur and FedEx Open AQHA World Championship Show, and Fort Dodge Versatility Ranch Horse World Championship Show, along with major events produced by AQHA Alliance Partners NCHA, NRHA and National Reined Cow Horse Association.

Sponsors Bank of America, Bayer, B&W Trailer Hitches, FedEx, Ford, Fort Dodge, John Deere, Professional’s Choice, Sidran and Tractor Supply will be bringing all the action to viewers.

RFD can be found on satellite systems Dish (Channel 231) and DirectTV (Channel 379), as well as several cable systems including Mediacom Cable and NCTC Cable Systems. RFD-TV currently is available in 30 million homes. For more information on the network, visit www. rfdtv.com.
