If a horse reaches the number of qualifying points required to show in performance halter and earns its performance Register of Merit during the qualifying period (May 1, 2013, thru May 27, 2014), it will qualify to show in the performance halter at the 2014 Ford Youth World. If a horse earned its performance ROM prior to the qualifying period, he/she will need an additional 10 riding points during the qualifying period in order to qualify for the 2014 Ford Youth World (and must reach the number of qualifying points required for performance halter). Riding points earned in the youth, open, amateur and Select amateur divisions during the qualifying period can cross over to count for youth performance halter. Showmanship points do not count.
Because youth ranch pleasure was not approved in its own division prior to January 1, 2014, if a horse/rider combination competed in open ranch pleasure between August 1 and December 31, 2013, those points may be counted toward youth world show qualification. However, points can only count once and if anyone other than the youth intending to qualify for the youth world show rode the horse in open competition, those points must remain as open points. Exhibitors need to contact AQHA with their intentions regarding youth ranch horse pleasure.
