Point System

 

The point system is open to all WAHA membership categories. Show at rated and non-rated shows and accumulate points for awards in 41 different categories, several of which are divided by age of horse and/or rider. Separate divisions are offered for purebred Arabians and Half/Anglo Arabians. Divisions for each include western, working horse (reining),  dressage, English, driving, costume, hunter, exhibitor (senior, junior, and junior junior), halter (several categories by sex & age), equitation, showmanship, endurance, and competitive.

Owners and Riders must all be members of WAHA or the points will not count.  Example: Your trainer must be a member of WAHA if the trainer rides the horse and you want those points to be counted.

You may enter the Point System any time, but no points will be counted for shows attended prior to entering the Point  System.  You must be entered in the Division to earn the points. Example: If you are not entered in Halter 5 and Over, you cannot count points won in that division.  If you want to count points in Showmanship or Equitation, you must enter those divisions separately.

Walk-Trot is always Gymkhana, regardless of what the show calls the class, Western, Hunter, etc. Lead line is also Gymkhana. Shows or classes for Pintos, National Show  Horses, 4-H, Buckskins, are called CLOSED shows/classes and cannot be counted for the WAHA Point System.  Costume is always costume whether a Novelty Costume Class at an open show, Sidesaddle, or Mounted Native Costume.  

In order for the points to count, you must mail them to the Purebred or Half-Arabian point keepers. If you have one of each, you need to send one to the Purebred point keeper and one to the Half-Arabian point keeper within 15 days of the close of the show.

If you have any questions or if you are having difficulty loading a form please contact Gay Jeanne Bower (920) 699-3690.​  Have fun collecting the points toward the WAHA Awards.
