Awards- The Champion High Point awards will be given a $750.00 gift certificate and the Reserve High Point will receive a $250.00 gift certificate.  Class awards for Open, Amateur, Select, Youth, Novice Youth, and Novice Amateur will now be given for Champion and Reserve only.  Ties in year end points will be broken there will only be one Champion in the year end class.

If exhibitors tie for Champion this will be the tie breaker criteria:

  1. Number of shows attended
  2. Number of shows attended other than Sun Circuit and Az Fall Championship.
  3. Highest number of AQHA points earned by horse/rider combo at qualified shows.

The exhibitor(s) that lose the Champion tie breaker will then all be named the Reserve champion. No other awards will be given to lower placing points.

If the exhibitors tie for Reserve this will be the tie breaker criteria:

  1. Number of shows attended
  2. Number of shows attended other than Sun Circuit and Az Fall Championship.
  3. Highest number of AQHA points earned by horse/rider combo at qualified shows.

The exhibitors(s) that lose the Reserve tie breaker will not be awarded any awards. Only one Reserve award will be given.

Class Rules: All classes shall be conducted in accordance with the current AQHA rulebook that will apply unless otherwise stated.

Show points are downloaded directly from AQHA’s home office to our points program. Any non
AQHA classes are done manually but all points will be placed on the AzQHA website.
If you find an error in your points please contact Connie Hay in the AzQHA office, she can answer any questions you might have on points. We track each AzQHA exhibitor by your AQHA member number, so every exhibitor must make sure that we have ALL your correct AQHA numbers. If you are a youth member and a family member owns the horse you exhibit, we must have the family member’s AQHA number on your membership file also.
