About the Scholarship Fund
Guy Stoops was a talented third-generation horseman. His grandfather was a Calvary instructor during World War I and his father was an avid hunter-jumper and three-day eventer. After Guy was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in 2003, he was posthumously named AQHA Professional Horseman of the Year.
Stoops believed strongly in giving back to fellow professional horsemen through education and supported the AQHA Professional Horsemen program since its inception. The Guy Stoops scholarship was founded in 2004 in his memory and has awarded scholarships to 19 children. Stoops’ legacy and dedication the American Quarter Horse Association lives on through the scholarship fund and through the Professional Horsemen and their families it impacts.
