The American Quarter Horse Association is pleased to announce the purchase of Robin Glenn Pedigrees, Inc. Established in 1981, RGP has long been recognized as the industry's premier sale catalog and pedigree service, currently producing sale catalogs for Heritage Place, the Los Alamitos Equine Sale, the National Reining Horse Association, Ruidoso Select Yearling Sales, Texas Quarter Horse Association and Western Bloodstock, producer of the National Cutting Horse Association's sales.
AQHA continues to invest in the equine industry for the benefit of AQHA members and American Quarter Horses. By purchasing RGP, members will be able to track American Quarter Horse accomplishments across the equine industry, thus enhancing the overall value of American Quarter Horses and in turn rewarding the owners of American Quarter Horses.
The purchase of RGP is the result of a recommendation by AQHA Second Vice President Dr. Glenn Blodgett of Guthrie, Texas.
"The high level of information, experience, devotion to the breed, industry knowledge and integrity blended in the consolidation of AQHA and Robin Glenn Pedigrees is bound to change the American Quarter Horse world in a very positive way," said Dr. Blodgett. "I am really looking forward to the information resources and the innovative marketing tools that I know will evolve."
RGP will remain in El Reno, Oklahoma. AQHA is pleased to announce the current RGP staff will continue to provide the same excellent service to the equine industry under the direction of RGP founder Robin Glenn.
"My passion for perpetuating and increasing the success of this wonderful breed is clearly shared by AQHA staff and board members, and our mission will be devoted to promoting all events in which an American Quarter Horse competes," said Glenn. "I hope to work even more closely with all event associations to make the American Quarter Horse business more prosperous in every area."
The 31-year-old database serves as an information resource for the AQHA World Championship Show, National Reined Cow Horse Association, National Snaffle Bit Association, All American Quarter Horse Congress and many other sale catalogs. RGP records money earned by American Quarter Horses and American Quarter Horse-related breeds in nearly every performance event.
Additionally, countless private-use pedigree pages and marketing documents have been produced by RGP. Products generated by the RGP database include the RGP FoalTracker, a personalized weekly notification service providing the previous week's accomplishments of your own horses or their foals, and the RGP Weekly Results Report, a weekly emailed report that details limited-age event and championship event results. All are data services offered at www.robinglenn.com.
