2020 awards announcement

Having now concluded our 2020 show season with shows #9 and #10, and having now received the final standings, the board met last night to conduct a final review of the 2020 year end awards. Given the cancellation of 4 of our planned 10 shows and the resulting 40% loss of entry fee income, the board concluded that for the purpose of awarding year end saddles the qualification requirement will need to remain as previously announced at 5 of the 6 shows. As a result the Open Bridle, Open Hackamore, Open Boxing, Non Pro Limited, Intermediate Non Pro Limited and Novice Non Pro Limited class champions will receive saddles. With respect to the other year end awards, we are very pleased to announce that our projected year end financial position will allow us to lower the qualification requirement for those awards to 3 of the 6 shows. As a result, in all 11 of the classes not qualified for a saddle the champion will receive a buckle and additional awards will be presented in accordance with our award policy.
