ALEXANDRIA, LA—MARCH 17, 2015—The Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders' Association Board has voted to change their process and add some additional state-bred Champions based on earnings beginning in 2014.

"In the past, we have always used AQHA points to determine our Champions," LQHBA Executive Director Tony Patterson said this week. "In 2014, we will still use AQHA points - but we will also add horses with the highest earnings by category. Even though we will have two horses in most of our categories, we will consider them all to be LQHBA Champions (not co-champions)," he said.

According to Patterson, adding the horses with the highest earnings in each category helps a horse become an LQHBA Champion that did not have the opportunity to have a large number of starts.

The 2014 LQHBA Champions will receive their awards during the annual LQHBA Awards Banquet on Saturday, April 11, 5:00 pm (CDT) at the Delta Downs event center in Vinton, Louisiana.
