For those of you who have been part of other SPHO's, what do you think are the most important awards to give? Considering there are few members in the SPHO of MA now, I don't think having a bunch of different divisions to have to buy ribbons and awards for would be economically smart. As of now, I have the following categories:
- Two Gait
- Three Gait
- Eventing/Combined Training
- Trail/Hunter Paces/Fox Hunts
- Pleasure Horse
- High Point Junior Rider
- High Point Senior Rider
- High Point Standardbred (based on points)
- Standardbred of the Year (horse that shows the most versatility and showcases the breed the best throughout the year)
Any comments, tips, ideas?
It would also be fantastic if you joined! Membership for the SPHO of MA is completely free for 2011, so why not? You have nothing to loose. I am asking a $10 donation (optional ofcourse) if you would like to be part of the awards program to help pay for the award fees at the end of the year. Membership info is currently up on the website (www.standardbredhorse.com) and the awards program info will be up in a few days.
