AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The American Quarter Horse Association is considering the possibility of relocating to Fort Worth after over 50 years in Amarillo.

According to AQHA Executive Vice President Craig Huffhines, the move has been an idea since the beginning of the organization.

“While the headquarters was ultimately established in Amarillo, the initial meetings organized to form the Association were held in Fort Worth, Texas,” he said. “Conversations regarding the possibility of moving the Association from Amarillo to Fort Worth have been held in barn aisles and boardrooms ever since.”

The executive vice president said fundraising and planning activities could take place as the company tries to raise money for the possible move.

According to the AQHA Twitter, fundraising activities that have taken place so far were not conducted by AQHA staff.

In his statement, Huffhines said the idea of a move is secondary to AQHA’s more immediate project and goals, including rolling out upgraded registration software.

Huffhines did not address the future of the AQHA Hall of Fame and Museum in his statement.
