AMHA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW

QUALIFYING - NEW FOR 2023!!!
All horses MUST attend 2 shows (no specific # of judges required), or place in the Top Ten at a Regional Championship show in each class in which they wish to exhibit at the World Show. If a horse is unable to attend 2 shows, you may "PAY TO PLAY".
Example #1 Black Beauty shows at two local shows in any classes - he is qualified for any non-Futurity classes at the World Show
Example #2: Black Beauty shows at 1 local show and a Regional Championship show in any classes- he is qualified for any non-Futurity classes at the World Show
Example #3: Black Beauty shows only at the Regional Championship and gets a Top Tens in all classes they want to show him in at the World Show - he is qualified for the World Show in those classes
Example #4: Black Beauty shows at the Regional Championship in some classes & uses the Pay To Play for the other show - he is qualified for any non-Futurity classes at the World Show
Example #5: Black Beauty goes to one local show in any classes and uses the Pay To Play program for the 2nd required show - he is qualified for any non-Futurity classes at the World Show
Example #6: Black Beauty does not attend any shows (local or Regional) and uses the Pay To Play for both shows - he is qualified for any non-Futurity classes at the World Show
PAY TO PLAY - This program has been instituted to benefit our local AMHA Approved Clubs as well as listening to our exhibitors needs. If you miss one show, you must pay $250/horse. If you miss two shows, you must pay $500/horse. This money will be pooled and distributed equally to all AMHA local clubs that hosted Approved AMHA shows in 2023 (minus a small administration fee). YOUTH CANNOT USE PAY TO PLAY!!!
YOUTH QUALIFYING - A Youth must show each horse at least once in the type of Youth class they plan to show the horse in at the World Show. The qualifying period includes the previous year's World Show. For example, if a Youth wants to show a horse in a Youth driving class at the World Show, they must show that horse at least once in a driving class prior to the close of entries. If the Youth wants to show a horse in a Youth Halter/In Hand class at the World Show, they must show it at least once in Halter/In Hand prior to the close of the World Show entries. There are NO hardship exceptions for Youth classes. Unqualified Youth may show in Open classes, however.
NO FORM NEEDED FOR CURRENT YEAR SHOWS - OUR PROGRAM WILL DETERMINE IF THE YOUTH IS ELIGIBLE.
IF USING LAST YEAR'S WORLD SHOW AS A QUALIFYING SHOW, PLEASE LET US KNOW.
