WHOA Register of Merit Invitation



news release from WHOA
 
Please consider this an invitation to all flat shod WHOA Members to join the WHOA Register of Merit Program! Many members are under the false impression that this WHOA Program is only for versatility horses. However, any flat shod horse and its rider may participate in the ROM program and accrue points from any show using a licensed Judge.

You may earn points in many different categories such as Trail Pleasure, Lite Shod, All Day Pleasure, Country Pleasure, Pleasure Driving, Model, Jumping, and Promotion. These are just a few examples of the many categories. 

It is true that in order to complete for the highest award, THE  Register Of Merit, the team will have to compete in some versatility categories but a person may compete in just one specific division and earn certificates in that one category for the year thus gaining recognition for achievements at the WHOA Award Banquet. The ROM Program is not connected to the WHOA High Point Program.
The requirements are simple: the rider and owner must be WHOA members and must keep their WHOA membership current to accrue points.  The horse being used must be registered. To enroll, simply email the information to me, sisosborne@tds.net
