Upcoming Scar Rule Clinics in Kentucky

The Bluegrass Pleasure and Walking Horse Association (BPWHA) would like to announce that it will be holding three Scar Rule Clinics in Kentucky in November. We welcome show horses of all disciplines and breeds to attend. The BPWHA is dedicated to showing sound horses, both pleasure and performance, so with this in mind we have arranged to hold the three Scar Rule Clinics in conjunction with the Horse Protection Commission (HPC), and the USDA.

We encourage all owners and trainers to bring their horses for inspection with no risk. The inspectors will not take any information about the horse or the owner. No tickets will be written. We will hold these clinics so that horse owners and trainers may come and ask questions and get information about the Scar Rule for educational purposes. We will hold these clinics at the places and times listed below.

The BPWHA is accepting applications for membership and for our judges program at this time. Anyone interested may go to and get an application for judges or membership. Membership applications accepted now will run through December 31, 2010. Judges applications must be received by December 20, 2009 to be eligible for testing for the 2010 judges list.
