Updates from 2018 Spring Board Meeting
The board met on March 10th & 11th in Omaha, Nebraska, for the 2018 Spring Board Meeting. This is also the location for the 2018 Convention and it is going to be great! The hotel rate is a very reasonable $89 (when booking through our room block) and the shuttle will take you to local restaurants, shops and museums - for free! This convention will be revamped to include more opportunities for mingling, learning and FUN! Be sure to Save the Date - November 8 thru 10 and look forward to a great time!

The meeting minutes will be available online and printed in The Journal upon submission and review. Be sure to view the Rule Change Proposals submitted for review at the 2018 Convention and let your voice be heard during discussions at convention.
Additional Measurement Opportunities -
Skip the line at AMHR Nationals!
NEW FOR 2018 - AMHR registered horses that are 2 years old and older and have temporary registration papers can be measured at a National Area Show and will not have to be re- measured at AMHR Nationals.

Also, AMHR horses with a permanent measurement card will need to be measured at a sanctioned show this year and when presenting that measurement at AMHR Nationals, will not have to be re-measured at the show.

Please note, height protests can be made per our rulebook and have worked effectively in the past.

2018 Rulebooks Available -
Online and Print
The Rulebooks are in! Each current paid membership can request a Rulebook to be sent at no charge. Additional copies are $9 each. Simply call 309-263-4044 or contact us by email if a print copy is needed.
