First Rule In Winning: You’ve Got To Show Up

by WSHJA Member Services September 14, 2012 in Membership

It’s the show season, and, as you walk into the show office at your first show, you realize you forgot to renew your WSHJA membership. Hastily you drop everything into the mail or even manage to go online and submit it that way– but the show has already started. What about your points? Do they count from the moment you mail it, or when you hit the submit button online? Now, thanks to your WSHJA board members, and member feedback, the policy is to back date your membership to the Monday of the week you submit your forms – this means your points for that show will count for the week and you are on your way to earning that Year End Division Championship.

Did you know that if there weren’t enough horses in the first class of your division, the rest of the division wouldn’t count for points? Not anymore! Because of membership and the support of the board, this rule was changed and points were counted in all of the classes in which there were enough riders.

At the Northwest Autumn Classic you’ll see all classes - hunters and jumpers – that are over a 1.10M competing only indoors. This is another change – brought about by member input, and made realistic by the WSHJA board. Tickets for prizes – and a better selection of prizes – were also based on membership input, as well as putting a cap on add/scratch fees at WSHJA shows. All of these were changes that the WSHJA hopes will continue to improve your showing experience, and all of them are changes that came about from someone in the community requesting them.

These changes and more all had one thing in common – you. All of the rule changes came about due to membership comments and board participation – each one showing your direct impact on WSHJA and your showing experience. More...
