The Fort Worth City Council approved a lease that would move the American Quarter Horse Association and Museum for 50 years.
The council voted unanimously to approve a ground lease for the construction of a new headquarters and museum and give them a 25% discount on rent each year the Youth World Championship Show and World Championship is held in Fort Worth.
According to the agreement the Association must complete construction within 3 years and the city will provide improvements like sewer, stormwater services, and road improvements.
AQHA Says “We greatly appreciate our Amarillo employees, who are focused on providing quality service to AQHA members around the world. We plan to keep the board of directors, members and the Association’s employees updated each step of the way as this possible relocation continues to develop.”
The Association stated “There is no timeline for construction or relocation, as relocation is not guaranteed at this point. It’s important to understand that a move is not imminent and there is no plan for future staffing changes.”
