Report Partners With WHOA High Point Program



  The Walking Horse Report is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Walking Horse Owners’ Association to promote WHOA’s National High Point Program.

            WHOA’s National High Point Program has been expanded to include results from all horse shows which are affiliated with the National Horse Show Commission and its allies, including Kentucky’s HIO and Western International.

            The Walking Horse Report will be inputting and tabulating show records from these shows to produce the WHOA National Highpoint winners.

            The awards will still be announced at the WHOA Annual Banquet, but the results throughout the year will now be available exclusively through the Walking Horse Report online at www.walkinghorsereport.com and WHOA’s Web site www.walkinghorseowners.com.

            Similar to The High Point Report, the national highpoint program sponsored by The Walking Horse Report, viewers can check standings in the points race, updated daily, and can verify the calculation of the totals through detailed breakdowns.

            “We have always had a great working relationship with the Report and we are glad to be joining forces to eliminate some of the duplication of effort in maintaining the high point programs,” said WHOA’s Tommy Hall.

            “We are very proud of our results database and look forward to working with WHOA and Tommy Hall to provide the industry with valuable reward programs,” said Report Publisher Christy Howard Parsons.

            The 2006 WHOA Highpoint rules are: for a horse to receive points, the owner of the horse must be a current member of the Walking Horse Owners’ Association and must be the registered owner on the papers at TWHBEA. Only National Horse Show Commission shows, Kentucky HIO shows, and Western International shows are counted for the annual WHOA high point presentation at the WHOA Convention.

            The WHOA Versatility points are counted from the versatility shows that are sponsored by WHOA, and like the National High Point program, the owner must be a member of WHOA to receive points. Shows must be affiliated with the NHSC, KY HIO, or Western International.

            The WHOA Register of Merit (ROM) program was established by WHOA in 1989. The ROM program has been adopted to provide the Plantation Horse and its exhibitors a showcase for the versatility of the Tennessee Walking Horse. Owners are responsible for keeping up with their points.  Points may be obtained at any affiliated show. Unaffiliated shows will only count if they use a judge who holds a judge’s license from a recognized licensing organization, i.e., 4H, AQHA, ASHA, RHBA, etc. To be included in the ROM program, owners must be members of WHOA.
