AMHA Star Rating Applications for 2011 Season Available



All shows that have Morgan classes can now apply to receive their AMHA "Star Rating" for their 2011 events. The AMHA Star Rating Competition Program was established in 2010 with two goals in mind: to educate and increase awareness of all types and levels of competitions that promote the breed, and to provide a tool to help horse owners identify affordable, convenient competitions where they can enjoy the fun of showing and test their skills. The rating also allows novices to compare the offerings of competitions so they can choose the right venues for them; as their level of experience and confidence grows, riders and drivers can select higher-rated competitions.

Following the 2010 show season, AMHA made a few adjustments to the requirements based on comments it received. The most significant change is that while Four Star Shows must have 75 percent-plus total number of Morgan classes, they can have either a USEF "r" or "R" judge. Please note, shows must have a minimum of 10 percent of Morgan classes in order to qualify for a Star Rating.

Show ratings are one to four stars, with AMHA Regional Shows being an exception. Once the show's application is submitted, the show with receive its star rating logo that can be used with all show publicity. Among the benefits offered as part of program include calendar listings, press releases, and ads in The Morgan Horse magazine, depending on a show's rating.
