    I dont like it. Most people cannot afford to take off from work and show for 3 weeks. I believe you will see a downtime in numbers this year due to this.

    Sunday, Oct 29, The Amt Performance Halter Classes are the SAME start and time frame as the Amt Ranch Riding, so exhibitors will have to possibly make a decision as to what class they do not show????? The classes for those of us, who qualified in both Amateur, Select Amt, and Open in classes such as Ranch Riding and Halter, are spread out across the schedule. Many of us work, especially, the Amateur’s so to come down twice to this show is very difficult time wise or to justify the expense. I’m in the top 10 or 15 in a couple of events, but will pick one division to show in. Why not get the cattle classes done at one time across all the divisions, hence more participation in these classes, instead of dragging these classes out for a couple of weeks. Very disappointing! Last year, was qualified in multiple events, while I had a ROM in both AM and OPEN, the records weren’t updated and I was told by the show office that I could not show in AM Performance mare due to no ROM, however did I got it about the same time as my Open ROM. So did not compete at 2022. Unfortunately many people I have talked with, have had the same issue. We work hard and spend ALOT of money doing this and the Assoc is not always user friendly. While I know record keeping is tough, AQHA may want to look into temp help to update these records and making the World Show flow a little smoother. Such as overlap of like classes closer together. Important, must get a solution to the performance halter and ranch riding schedule!
