PtHA® offers recognition for members who participate in showing their Pinto through out the year. PtHA® presents awards for lifetime and yearly achievements. Members receive their awards at the annual PtHA® Convention held in March of each year in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Awards include Twin Cities South Trailers, Kensington Protective Products, Tioga Territory, Gist Silversmiths Buckles, PtHA® Trophies, and Halters and Saddles from ARC.

The award will be calculated by ROM points earned at PtHA® approved shows from Jan.1 - Dec. 31. The award will be given to the highest point earner in three divisions: Youth 18 & Under, Amateur 19 & Over and Open Pinto. For the youth and amateur division, the award will be calculated for units only. A unit is defined by the PtHA® rulebook as one youth/one Pinto or one amateur/one Pinto. Ties within a division will be broken as follows: the first tie will be awarded to the unit that earned points in the greatest number of PtHA approved local shows, the second tie will be awarded to the unit that earned points in the greatest number of PtHA ROM-pointed classes, subsequent ties will be awarded to the unit with the most first place point-earning wins, second place point-earning wins, etc.

PtHA® presents an annual award to the top 10 units in each of the Youth and Amateur age groups.

Units consist of one horse and one exhibitor. All PtHA® Youth and Amateurs in good standing are eligible. Novice Amateur and Novice Youth classes are not eligible for this award. A contestant may exhibit more than one horse, however, the points will be computed separately.


A maximum of 20 judges will be used to compute the total points per unit. Each judge is counted as one show. A judge can only appear on the list one time. Points are computed on an annual show year basis. Average scores will not count. Only individual judge scores will count. Register of Merit points are used. Show points are not used. If a tie occurs, World Show tie-breaker logic will be used to break the tie. If two units are tied for the same Amateur or same Youth unit, the earliest show date will break the tie.

A certificate will be mailed and results will be published in the Pinto Horse Magazine.
