Last chance to check on your points

by WSHJA Shows November 7, 2010 in Announcements

November 30th is the last day to submit results and/or corrections to your point’s standings.

Please, check the list of official show results that have been submitted to the WSHJA, listed within the Points section of the WSHJA website. Please be aware that not all horse shows, especially those held out-of-state, send WSHJA results. As such it is the responsibility of the exhibitor to request the horse show secretary send in official results, the same file sent to the USEF, along with a copy of the Prize list to points@wshja.org within 45 days after the show.

Do one more check of your points status at WSHJA.org website and notify points@wshja.org of any additions or changes by November 30th.
