AQHA Horse of the Year Nomination Form... (2 pages, due Feb. 15)
There is one form for both JH and HS members- they can distinguish their affiliation by circling the correct division in the middle of the form. The horse must be currently registered AQHA and the owner of the horse must also be a current member of AQHA. The contestant nominating the horse must also be a member of AQHA and there is information on the second page regarding how easy and inexpensive it is to become or renew a membership.
The relationship of the horses’ owner to the contestant has changed; the horse owner and contestant do not necessarily have to be related anymore, but the contestant MUST inform the state secretary that the horse they have nominated is the one they will be using for the event(s) they have declared with our office. I will continue to provide the state secretary with the information we have received from contestants for their state/provincial finals.
Everything must be received in the NHSRA office by February 15. We will not honor “postmarked by Feb. 15.” Late entries will not be accepted and there are no exceptions for any reason. The deadline is February 15.
