UPHA Horse/Pony of the Year Nominations



UPHA Horse/Pony Of The Year Awards Program

(Revised rules..... please read carefully!)

 

The UPHA Horses/Ponies of The Year must be nominated according to the following rules:

 

  1. Any UPHA Active, Associate or Junior member can nominate a horse/pony. The Nomination Form must include shows the animal competed in, plus, all other requested information regarding owner, trainer, etc. You do not have to be the owner or trainer of the horse/pony to nominate an eligible animal.
  2. To be eligible for nomination, a horse/pony must participate in at least four (4) shows, entering the same class and division which the horse/pony is to be nominated, during the same calendar year.
  3. Two, Three and Four Year Old horses/ponies are considered Open horses/ponies and can be nominated in the Open divisions.
  4. All Nomination Forms must be postmarked and mailed to the UPHA, on or before November 1st of each year. The UPHA American Royal National Championship or The Morgan Grand National can be used as qualifying shows.  You must indicate on your nomination form, your intentions to show at these shows.
  5. Only the Classes and Divisions currently used by the UPHA for Horse/Pony of The Year awards will be used for Nominations. Those Divisions and Classes are listed on the back of the Nomination Form.
  6. Trainers and Owners of all UPHA Horse/Pony of the year Nominated animals must be current members of the UPHA.

As Nomination Forms are received in the office, the horse/pony will be placed on a list according to Class and Division. After November 1st, a Ballot containing each nominated and qualified animal will be printed and mailed to all Active UPHA members, for their vote. All Ballots must be postmarked on or before December 1st of each year. The Class winners will be determined directly from these Ballots and the Owner of the winning horse/pony, in each Class, will be notified prior to the Convention. The Class Awards will be presented during a Luncheon on Friday at the Annual Convention.

 

Each of the forty-three (43) Class winners automatically becomes eligible for the UPHA Horse/Pony of The Year Division Award in their respective Division. Ballots will be distributed to all Active and Associate UPHA members, present at the Convention.  The results of that Vote will determine the eleven (11) UPHA Horse/Pony of the year Division Champions and will be presented during the Saturday evening banquet at the Annual Convention.
