From the AMHA Office - 

The 2021 Annual Meeting was a tremendous success!! There are many rule changes that go into effect on Jan 1st, 2022. The Carriage Driving Division is approved! Membership renewal date is 12/31 now; for 2022 only we will prorate your renewal so it ends on 12/31/22. Temporary Registration Certificates will expire on 12/31 after the horse has reached it's third birthday. Late fees will incur after that date. Beginning in 2022, the deadline for rule change proposals to be submitted to the AMHA office will be 30 days after the conclusion of the Annual Meeting.  The 2022 Annual Meeting will be in the DFW area. The age at which our Youth exhibitors age out of the program did not change. Regions with more than 400 members will now have 2 Directors; Regions 4,5,6 and 9 will now each have 2 Regional Directors. Hardship measuring and inspection may now be held at an AMHA Special Event - please watch for a new application for that. AOTE Versatility, AOTE Hunter, and AOTE Halter Obstacle are now recognized classes; they will be eligible for Honor Roll Awards in 2023. Golden Hunter shall have 4 jumps and 1 left turn. There are other rule change proposals as well, so please watch for the updated 2022 Rule Book which will be online sometime this spring. 

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 amha-kit-reply@vgl.ucdavis.edu 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, memberservices@amha.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 memberservices@amha.org or info@amha.org

Painted Legend Miniatures

Stefani and Linda Dooling.jpg

They are a small family ranch in the little town of Springtown, TX just thirty minutes west of Fort Worth, TX. They started off raising and showing paints but Linda always loved the miniature horse. In 2008, she finally got a mini. Shortly thereafter her daughter and grandson were hooked. So, 1 led to 2, then 3, then to more...

They got interested in showing and joined AMHA. They sent their horses to the trainer and they spent (fun) hours practicing, traveling and showing.

There was a pause in their lives, but returned to showing in 2017 when her daughter found her dream boy, TX Angels Mamas Primer Amor to add to our herd. In 2020 they bred him to a few of their mares and they can't wait to see what he produces.

Visit them online to see more beautiful horses!!
