A Deep Foundation

I officially own Huck!

His AQHA registration papers have MY name on them!

AND I was able to find out that his Foundation percentage is 89.36%!

What does that mean, you might be wondering?

That means that he's only about 10% Thoroughbred. If you'd like to read more about what a Foundation Quarter Horse is, check out the Foundation Quarter Horse Association website.

There is also the National Foundation Quarter Horse Association AND the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry.  Each requires their own chosen percentage for membership at 75% and 80% respectively.  The FQHA has the highest requirement of 85%.

What that means for us, is that we can compete for the Hi-Point Foundation Quarter Horse award at our ranch shows next year!

Hmmmm.  I went from hunter Arabians, to an all-around Thoroughbred/Paint to a Foundation Quarter Horse/reiner!

Oh how times change!
