NCQHA has numerous activities each year for members and guests.
We look forward to seeing you soon!


NCQHA meetings currently are held the second Monday of each month with some exceptions. The meetings are held at Johnson’s Corner Restaurant along I-25 near Johnstown, Colorado. General Membership meetings begin at 7:00 p.m., with participants encouraged to arrive at 6 p.m. to enjoy supper together before the business meeting. Educational programs may sometimes be included in the evening’s line-up. 


NCQHA, together with the Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association, sponsors two Quarter Horse shows each year: the Mile High Quarter Horse Classic and the Heart of the Rockies Show Circuit. Both shows offer a full slate of halter and English and Western performance classes and are approved by the American Quarter Horse Association and RMQHA.


Each year, a variety of trail rides are planned for our members. These rides are planned for the entire family. Everyone enjoys miles and miles of the magnificent scenic splendor of Colorado. Trail riders not only enjoy the beauty of Colorado, but also have the opportunity to earn year-end participation awards. Riders enjoy a potluck meal after each ride. Please see our NCQHA Trail Rides page for a list of upcoming trail rides


NCQHA’s Clinic Committee from time to time works to bring to our association world class clinicians. These clinicians have shared valuable information with NCQHA members as we improve our horsemanship and management skills. We also have guest speakers at our monthly meetings to talk about various phases of the horse industry. See our Events section for upcoming clinics.


The NCQHA News is printed several times each year in issues of the RMQHA magazine. This also is a place for members to run ads. In addition, some news items will be listed on this website under Member News. Please contact President Deb Meyer to submit news items and/or ads. Email:


Each December, NCQHA has a merry Christmas Party – just for fun! Then, the Annual Awards evening in February includes a social hour and meal to celebrate a wonderful year. Members gather to socialize and swap those horse show and trail stories or just to visit with friends. The evening finale is the presentation of hard-earned year-end awards. Awards are presented in several different categories, including high-points in Halter, Performance, Breeder, Youth, and Trail. Top Hand Awards are given to those members who have especially supported the organization throughout the year. A True Grit Award is presented to a member(s) whose luck might need a little boost. This exciting event is usually held in February. What a great way to kick-off the New Year!
