One of the purposes of the North Star Morgan Americana is to present our best horses to potential buyers and breeders. We do a good job of presenting young horses to our audience “in hand” and identifying the breeders of these handsome and exciting horses. The Performance Horse Breeder’s Championship is a first step in identifying the breeders whose programs are successful in producing a winning performance horse. A lot of people believe that superior animals need to prove the potential of their conformation by winning in performance classes. Of course, we know that a lot of factors are involved in winning at a competitive show like North Star, but even the best exhibitor and the best trainer can’t consistently make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. The breeder’s contribution may start in the breeding shed, but it lasts for the life of the horse.
This championship will recognize consistent quality performances by the products of a breeding program. No entry fee is required; all breeders of horses entered in the show are automatically included in the championship. The breeder does not need to be a current member of the North Central Morgan Association or the American Morgan Horse Association to be eligible. The breeder does not have to enter the show or be present to win. The registration certificate (already submitted for each horse) will determine the breeder for the horse.
The Championship and Reserve Championship will be awarded on the basis of points earned during the North Star Morgan Americana. The awards recognize a breeding program, not a particular horse. Points may be earned by more than one horse for any breeder. The awards recognize breeding programs that produce good horses for performance in any discipline. Points will be earned in performance classes only; “in hand” classes, classes which judge the exhibitor (e. g., equitation, reinsmanship and “medal” classes) and Championships won on points or high scores (e. g., dressage and carriage) will not count.
Only the winning horse in each class will earn points for the breeder, with points given equal to the number of horses shown in the class. There will be no bonus for stakes or championship classes. For example, Steelrock Farm bred the winners of the “Western Pleasure - Mares” (fifteen mares in the class) and the “Western Pleasure - Stallions or Geldings” (twelve in the class); so Steelrock Farm earns 27 points.
Please help us make this an exciting new recognition of excellence by including a copy of each horses papers with your pre-entry.
This contest will take place Wednesday, July 2nd. For more information, contact Arlene Berzins at 612/972-2102.
