Important Award Plaque Update

 

If you have received a letter or notification that you and/or your horse has earned the next award for the achievement awards program but have not received the plaque yet. Currently due to supply chain shortages your plaque will be delayed in getting shipped to you. However, once our vendor has been received or been restocked with the supplies, they will be shipping out the plaques as soon as they are able.

 

 


Horse Achievement Awards

 

AHA's premier recognition program for horses that actively compete. Achievement Awards symbols printed behind a horse's name provide a visible sign of honor and prestige. Horses earn points for competing and placing in AHA-recognized events, including: 

 

  • Breeding/in-hand classes
  • Performance classes
  • Competitive trail rides
  • Endurance rides
  • Combined driving
  • Arabian racing
  • Gymkhana
  • Dressage
  • Pleasure carriage driving
  • Eventing

 

This unique program may be the only one in the equine industry that adds achievement symbols that become a permanent part of a horse's name.

Amateur Achievement Awards

 

Modeled after the popular Achievement Awards Program, which tracks a horse's performance, the Amateur Achievement Awards (AAA) Program assigns points to individual riders, handlers and drivers. Riders don't have to own the horse they compete with since this program tracks riders only. Available for youth and adults.

 

Qualifying classes and rides include AHA Recognized & U.S. Equestrian Federation/EC-rated shows and events; Endurance & Competitive Trail Rides and Open Dressage Classes; USEA Eventing; and some pole bending and barrel racing competitions in Arabian divisions.
