2019-20 Show Season Points (begins with 2019 Go South)
Points for Year-end Awards and Youth World qualifying begin to accumulate at the time dues are paid. Current show year for 2020 will start with the December 2019 Go South for the Winner show in Texarkana. The year will end with the May 2020 Memorial Day show in Memphis. This applies to year-end points and youth world show qualifying.
Points will not count toward OPEN division Arkansas Quarter Horse Association Year-End Awards unless HORSE OWNER is a member of the ArQHA. If a horse is owned by a farm, business, or joint AQHA membership, an individual membership must be purchased under the name of the farm, business, or joint AQHA membership for points to count in the OPEN division. This applies even if the individual owners of the farm, business, or joint membership have already joined ArQHA.
Youth memberships allow points to count only in the Youth division. A separate individual or family membership is required for points to count in Open events.
A horse must have accumulated ten (10) points or more and be in the top 9 in each class to be eligible for a Year-End Award. Three categories of awards based on the total points will be given. The Awards Committee will determine the actual percentage breakdown based on the number of points possible during each year. Points from classes (in which points earned are at least 10 and in top 9) will be added together to determine the category in which horse/owner in open events and horse/rider in amateur and youth events will be placed.
