The purpose of the GIF continues to be the promotion of registrations and transfers of AMHA geldings by increasing their value through a monetary incentive encouraging their exhibition in the show arena. The GIF is intended to be self-sustaining by means of nomination fees paid by the participants. As available, other sources of funding may be used to supplement the prize money available for payout.

There is a payout for the TOP TEN geldings in each of the following five (5) Categories:

  • Youth/YOTE Performance

  • Amateur/AOTE Performance

  • Open  Performance

  • Jr. Halter Gelding  

  • Sr. Halter Gelding

You may nominate your gelding in up to 4 of the 5 categories offered!

Geldings participating in the GIF must be nominated annually. You may nominate your gelding for a non-refundable fee at anytime during the show-year through the start of the first class of the World Show. All participants must turn in a GIF Nomination form to the office before the start of the nominated geldings first class at the World Show in order to be eligible for GIF awards. All nomination fees go into the general gelding fund and are not maintained by a specified class or division.

  • 1 Category: $50
