We are so excited to bring you the 2022 World Championship Show live this fall on our website!
From the AMHA Office -
The 2022 World Show was a tremendous success!! We were especially excited to bring back our International Gambler's Choice Class! This year we saw the debut of the Trainer's Showmanship GIF Fundraising Calcutta. What a fun class that was! And we very sadly said goodbye to our World Show Manager of 16 years - Laura Mullen. Laura will continue to manage some AMHA shows, but we will sorely miss her at the World Show.
Make sure your paperwork is in order - leases, owner transfers, temp to perms, and stallion changes must be done before you show. The office is busy transitioning to the new software system. We are getting caught up, but please be patient with us as we work hard to get your papers sent out. DNA kits are now being emailed directly from the lab at UC Davis. The sending email address is email@example.com Please put this email address in your contacts, so they don't get rejected or go to spam. If you need your kit mailed instead of emailed, please let us know when you order your kit. We are emailing Membership and Amateur cards, so please add our email address, firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts so our emails don't end up in your Junk/Spam folders. Remember, we do NOT need photos for Transfers unless the horse is also going Permanent or being registered for the first time. We hope you like the look of our new certificates. We have put a place for an Owner Transfer on the back, so you do not need to send us an Owner Transfer form. If you have any questions at all, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
in order to receive your membership cards, DNA kits, and notices from AMHA,
please add email@example.com as an email contact!!
