AHS Materiale Awards

Starting in the 2009 season, the American Hanoverian Society had a new set of awards for young horses who compete in the Materiale classes in dressage shows and sport horse breed shows. In these classes, the horses are ridden in groups and evaluated and scored for their gaits mainly and for their conformation in a minor way. The classes are divided by age and sex and are for young horses between the ages of three and five years old.

To be eligible for these awards, the horses must be in the AHS Registry (transferred in the case of German-papered horses) and the owner must be a current year member of the AHS (Active, Associate, Junior). Also, we do require that the horse is Lifetime Recorded with USDF, and the owner and rider must be participating members with the USDF for their scores to count and medians to be determined. We strongly encourage that our members have declared the AHS as "their registry of choice" with the USDF so all of the important bases are covered and so the horses are already "set up" for All Breeds. Congratulations to all!
