AQHA Incentive Fund Payout


It pays to show an AQHA Incentive Fund-nominated American Quarter Horse.


More than $2.7 million will be divided among nominated foals that earned a total of 130,066.5 points – making the AQHA Incentive Fund payout for the 2011 show season $21.14 per point.


While the Incentive Fund has been the gold standard for showing incentive programs, it has not incurred any major changes or fee increases since its inception, despite a decrease in the number of nominated stallions and an increase in the number of classes in which points are awarded.


In 2012, the Incentive Fund launched several changes to help boost the point value:

  • Increase the percentage paid to stallion and foal nominators to 15 percent

  • Owners will need to purchase a $50 license fee in open and amateur each year

  • Horses earning more than 200 points annually will receive 50 percent of the point value for any points above 200

  • Foal nominations will increase to $125 in 2013


All of these changes are being made to add more money to the Incentive Fund, which in turn, puts more money in owners’ pockets.


To redeem every Incentive Fund dollar the horse earns, call AQHA today at (806) 376-4811 to purchase the license. For complete information regarding the Incentive Fund modifications, visit


Founded in 1940, the American Quarter Horse Association is the largest equine breed organization in the world. With headquarters in Amarillo , Texas , AQHA has a membership of more than 280,000 people in 86 countries and has registered more than 5 million horses in 95 countries.
