Show Circuit Basics:

              In "horse-judged" classes, horse must be owned by an MHA member.   2015 Membership Application

              In equitation & showmanship/grooming, the rider/handler must be an MHA member.

              If you show under a farm name as owner, it must be registered with MHA with at least one owner a current member.
              To qualify for year-end honors, earn points in your class/division at three (3) different shows
                      NOTE:  Double judged shows count as TWO shows: i.e. a ribbon in each class/division from each judge counts as a show.
      IMPORTANT:If your class/division is commonly not held three times, MHA encourages you to contact Show Managers to lobby for inclusion of your class.  Sponsoring (or getting someone to sponsor the class) helps also.
             The point system is based on the RATING of the show AND the NUMBER in the class.
  • Classes restricted to Junior Exhibitors MHA awards high score, reserve high score, third through sixth place ribbons
  • MHA Medallion Pleasure gold, silver and bronze trophies to the top three.
  • All other classes/divisions MHA awards high score and reserve winners.
