New competitors can vie for new Intermediate Exhibitor of the Year awards for the 2013 show year.
The American Quarter Horse Association will recognize the Justin Youth and Amateur Intermediate Exhibitors of the Year and AQHA International Youth and Amateur Intermediate Exhibitors of the Year starting with the 2013 show year.
These new awards will replace the Justin Rookie awards.
U.S. and Canadian amateurs who have never earned a point in AQHA-approved shows and who earned the most points in the current year in their appropriate age division will receive a pair of Justin boots, a sterling silver and gold Montana Silversmiths belt buckle and $2,000 cash. Youth winners will receive a pair of Justin boots, a sterling silver and gold Montana Silversmiths belt buckle and:
One amateur and one youth member from each international affiliate who accumulate the most points between January 1 and December 31 will be named the AQHA International Intermediate of the Year and will receive a year-end plaque and a trophy belt buckle from Montana Silversmiths.
Justin Intermediate Exhibitor of the Year and AQHA International Intermediate Exhibitor of the Year Awards rules are as follows:
To the person winning points in the greatest number of events
To the person with the greatest number of wins
To the person who earned their last point first
Example: The person who earned her 50th point in March would win over the person who earned her 50th point in May.
Novice points earned previously or during the exhibitor’s Intermediate year do not count against eligibility or toward tabulation for Justin Intermediate of the Year awards.
