Thank you very much for showing with us in 2014 and we look forward to seeing you at our Award's Banquet in January 2015, which will be hosted by the Texas Paint Horse Club for all our 2014 Exhibitors.
The rules for Year End Awards are listed in our Bylaws. You can find a copy of the Bylaws under the About Tab on this Web Site. Here are the rules:
Section 8. Year-End Award Qualifications:
a) Open Awards. To be eligible for all TPHC “open” year-end (individual class) awards, the owner of the horse must be a current TPHC member in good standing at the time the points are earned, and must also have worked, (or had someone else work) at least two (2) hours at a TPHC show. Owners/exhibitors or their “substitutes” must sign up with the horse show secretary on the form provided, to record the hours they have worked to qualify for their TPHC year-end awards.
b) Youth and Amateur Awards. To be eligible for youth, amateur and novice amateur (individual class) year-end awards, the youth, amateur or novice amateur exhibitor must be a member of TPHC at the time the points are won, and must have worked, (or had someone else work) at least two (2) hours at a TPHC show. Owners/exhibitors or their “substitutes” must sign up with the horse show secretary on the form provided, to record the hours they have worked to qualify for their TPHC year-end awards. All youth, amateur and novice amateur year-end awards are based on a one horse, one exhibitor basis, with the exception of Leadline and Walk-Trot classes. The exhibitor-horse combination must be eligible to earn APHA points.
c) If the Horse is Sold. If the horse is sold, the points on the horse will transfer to the new owner, and will continue to accrue when the new owner joins the TPHC, if the new owner is not already a member of the TPHC.
d) For Points to Count. The owner of the horse must become a member of the TPHC before the end of the last class at the TPHC approved.
TPHC Selected as a 2014 Club of Distinction!
The club was one of 5 clubs nationally that was selected for this award by an in-house panel of judges, for the outstanding level of service it provides its members and community, as well as its enthusiastic promotion of the Paint Horse and APHA. Congratulations to the TPHC!
