AMHA Star Awards

In 2018, AMHA created the Star Awards Program. The goal of the program is to:

• Increase participation at Morgan competitions;
• Encourage all shows to become an AMHA Star Rated Show;
• Provide a FREE program as an AMHA membership benefit;
• Provide a fun, exciting venue for awards presentation at AMHA's annual convention;
• Provide additional advertising opportunities for The Morgan Horse magazine; and
• Foster good will and sportsmanship!

General Rules
1. The annual awards period is November 1 to October 31 and points will be awarded only in classes restricted to Morgan horses.
2. Horses must be registered with AMHA and the exhibitor must be a competing AMHA member.
3. Point standings may be available online at www.morganhorse.com if the current software program being developed allows.
4. Questions about prize lists should be directed to show management prior to competition. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to understand and abide by each competition’s rules.
5. All reports of errors discovered in show results or point standings must be submitted to AMHA no later than November 1. It is each owner’s responsibility to check for accuracy. No changes will be made after the award period has closed.
6. All disputes will be resolved by the American Morgan Horse Association (AMHA).
7. All award winners will be featured in The Morgan Horse magazine.

Awards include 18 divisional awards and 5 overall high-point awards, which are:
