While Canadian Horses are known for their versatility and family-horse nature, there are many horses that have also shown and won at the highest levels of various disciplines including dressage, jumping, working equitation, and pleasure/combined driving. These highly trained athletes are amazing breed ambassadors, especially when showing in front of an audience unfamiliar with the breed, or to those who are unused to seeing the Canadian as a Performance Horse option.
To recognize the outstanding show-ring performances of these athletic horses and their dedicated owners, CHHAPS has created an award program based on performance in competition.
If you are a CHHAPS member and owner of a pure or part-bred Canadian currently showing that is either a current or potential performance champion, then this is the program for you!
There are nine different disciplines that qualify to earn points for this program:
- Competitive Trail/ Endurance
- English General Performance
- Western General Performance
- Combined Driving Events
- Working Equitation
When registering, you have the option of choosing either one single division, or else all of them. If you register for one and later change your mind, no worries, just contact our Awards Program Registrar.
Browse the CHHAPS Performance Award Program Overview & Point System link below for the program details, list of disciplines, award points determination, and further rules and requirements.
If you decide this is the program for you, be sure to register and start earning points at your next show. Start working towards winning your own beautiful customized medals with your pure or part-bred Canadian Horse today!
NOTE: Points continue to accumulate for the life of the horse even if horse is transferred or sold, as long as the horse’s current owner is a CHHAPS member.
Fill out the Performance Award form below and you will be prompted to pay via Paypal ($25 for one division or $50 for all divisions, for the lifetime of the horse) once it is sent.
