Learn About Equine Research

American Quarter Horse Association


The care and welfare of the American Quarter Horse is of utmost importance to the American Quarter Horse Foundation. With millions of American Quarter Horses across the world, the need to provide funding for equine research has become a major priority for many horse enthusiasts.

The AQHA Equine Research Commitee comprises leading American Quarter Horse breeders, equine veterinarians and other AQHA Members well grounded in equine research methods. Each year, the committee selects promising and appropriate research projects for funding. Since 1979, AQHA and AQHF have provided more than $6 million in equine research grants to numerous colleges and universities. Some of the current research topics include: equine infections anemia, navicular syndrom, laminitis, glycogen storage disorders and fertility in mares and stallions.

In 1994, a permanent fund was established to accept contributions from which interest income provides financial support for research of the prevention and cure of equine diseases and injuries. In addition to general donations, several specialized challenges have been established to learn more about specific horse health issues.

The long term goal of AQHF is to have $5 million in a permanent equine research fund. This principle will be kept in the fund forever, with the interest earned each year funding equine research grants.
