~Eligibility for participation in the Affiliates Award Program
~Eligibility for national recognition through participation in USHJA sponsored Equitation Awards Program offered by USHJA Affiliate Organizations
~Notification of USHJA sponsored clinics in their area


PARTICIPATION AND SPECIFICATIONS
This Equitation Award program is offered to organizations that are Affiliate Members of USHJA.
