Gail Aumiller, FHANA Sports Committee Chair, spearheaded development of the program which now allows Friesian owners across North America to utilize up to 2 scores to earn their Performance awards and Sport Predicate titles. “FHANA worked with the Royal Friesian Studbook (KFPS) for approval of this change. And then we partnered with Spotlight Horse Shows to develop and implement the program. We now have a good balance between allowing videos, but still requiring in person tests as well.”
Performance Award Points can be earned in the following sports divisions.
Dressage, Western Dressage, and Driven Dressage.
Sport Predicates can be earned in both Dressage and Driven Dressage.
