This year the Awards Committee made a decision in regards to the Recognition Awards for 2020. The decision was to postpone the Recognition Awards until 2021. If you have already submitted a nomination for either the Ambassador Award or the Open Competition Award for 2020, we appreciate you for your submission and will transfer them to 2021.
Make the most of your 2020 results and enroll or renew your horse in the Achievement Awards today. It is $50 to enroll a new horse in the program or $50 to renew by September 30th. Unpaid points are available to purchase for $100 per year. Take a look at your horse’s Horse Achievement Summary and see if your horse is eligible for an award.
