TWHBEA International High Point Program Announced



Today, the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association announces the new TWHBEA International High Point Program designed to collect and record the results of every horse shown on the rail.

Shows affiliated with the Program will receive free advertising on the TWHBEA website, all social media sites such as Facebook and distribution of email blasts to TWHBEA’s email database. Affiliated shows agree to the rules of the Program, and submit the complete show results to TWHBEA.  There will be no cost to the show, rider-member or owner-member to participate in this Program.

The point calculation formula reflects the number of horses in a class, the placement of the horse in the class and the overall classification of the show.  All horses completing the class receive one participation point. Horses tying receive additional points based on the number of horses completing the class.

Horses compete against other horses Regionally and Nationally.  Points accumulated throughout the season at these shows determine the results for Regional and International High Point Winners. IPEDS will include high point results and all awards garnered by the horse in addition to show results. The high point horses and their owners will receive recognition at the TWHBEA Annual Awards Banquet in December of each year.
