CHHAPS is proud to sponsor the 2017 Working Equitation Horse Breed Performance Awards for the top performing registered Canadians competing in Working Equitation with the Working Equitation United Association in the United States.

For 2017, the winner of the High Point Canadian Horse is Canadian Farm Jerrycho Manon, a beautiful mare owned by Karen Bentley and shown by her daughter Kristina Eckert.

In addition to her High Point Breed Recognition, Manon secured her place in Working Equitation history by winning the 2017 Novice A National Championship title at the WE United National Show. In addition to her WE career, Canadian Farm Jerrycho Manon is an accomplished combined driving and eventing horse, truly a testament to the versatility of this breed.

Working Equitation is a versatile sport open to working horses of all breeds and traditions. WE United’s Breed Performance Awards are offered in order to recognize the accomplishments of specific breeds in Working Equitation. These awards are presented once per year at the end of the competition season to horses declared for a participating breed organization by WE United and the participating organization.

Horses’ annual competition points reported to the WE United Annual Leaderboard will be used to determine the winner of the year-end Breed Performance Awards. Horses must be registered with WE United and the participating breed organization in order to be eligible for a year-end Breed Performance Award.

You can see a complete list of recorded horses here, including their breed and ownership information.

Each breed organization, or an individual on behalf of that organization, provides the award, and in return receives promotion on the Working Equitation United website, Facebook page, and monthly newsletters throughout the year.
