Star Rating Competition Program

The AMHA Star Rating Competition Program was established in 2010 as an effort to help local shows across the country. Horse shows that apply for and are accepted as AMHA Star Rated Shows will qualify the first through fourth place horses in all-Morgan classes for the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show®. The enrollment fee for AMHA recognition is $50.

2020 Star Rating Guidelines

NEW FOR 2020:

All AMHA competitions and participants are required to follow all current Federal, State and Local government-issued COVID-19 guidelines in addition to those set by our equine organizational partners (Joint Leadership Council or USEF). Competitions must also obtain completed waivers from each participant as recommended by either the Joint Leadership Committee (for non-USEF competitions) or the USEF (for Federation licensed competitions).

These waivers, along with other valuable re-opening information, are on the JLC’s web page here.

For your convenience, here are the links to the waivers:
