Important Information Regarding EHV-1 Show CancellationsDear Show Mangers and Show Secretaries,
Due to the recent outbreak of the EHV-1, the Arabian Horse Association Board of Directors has passed the following motion;
Moved, that in the case where a qualifying show is canceled by the threat of EHV-1, all horses entered in such show shall be considered qualified for the section in their respective Regional Championship Show from the class(es) they had entered by the time of cancellation for the 2011 year only.
If your AHA Recognized Show has been canceled, you will need to forward a list of horses which were entered into your show prior to the cancellation. Please include all pertinent information just as if the show had been held (class title, horse name and registration number, exhibitor name and member number, etc.). A copy of this information will need to be submitted to both the AHA office and your Regional Show Secretary.
Please note that this motion only affects EHV-1 canceled shows. Any show which is re-scheduling its dates will not qualify for the Regional Championship unless it is held prior to the close of entries.
