Commorate Someone With A Brick On The Wall Of Honor The newly named American Quarter Horse Foundation Executive Director Gary Carpenter recently announced a new plan for the Wall of Honor surrounding the American Quarter Horse Heritage Center & Museum. Since 1997, AQHA Members could purchase a custom-engraved brick to be placed on the Wall of Honor permanently recognizing their favorite American Quarter Horse. With legendary horsemen and women who have worked to make AQHA a success, the AQHF Board of Trustees voted to allow people to now be honored on the wall. Beginning June 2002, the Wall of Honor will include names of AQHA Members. Bricks can be purchased in recognition or in memory of AQHA Members. All names submitted for a brick will be verified as a Member in good standing (minimum of one year) and must not have been suspended or sanctioned for any reason during their AQHA membership. "Every AQHA Member deserves to be on the Wall of Honor," said Gary Carpenter, Executive Director for AQHF. "Each person who becomes an AQHA Member helps to preserve the breed and secure its future in the equine industry. The Wall of Honor is not a competition of show trophies or race earnings-it is meant to recognize and remember those who had a passion and devotion to the American Quarter Horse." From the front seven panels covering the American Quarter Horse Heritage Center & Museum, two are nearly filled. There is limited number of brick space left on the second section-the two closest to the Museum entrance-and are available for $500 a brick. The third section of the Wall of Honor is filling fast-at only $200 per brick, owners and horses can both be recognized. Duplicate bricks are available and may be shipped anywhere in the contiguous United States for $100 (each brick). For more information on purchasing a brick for an American Quarter Horse or AQHA Member, please contact AQHF at (806) 376-5181 or visit the Foundation's Web site at http:// www.aqha.com /horse/foundation/contributions.html.
