Youth and Amateur HI-Point Program Region 9
The Youth and Amateur Hi-Point for Region 9 was developed to reward those Youth and Amateurs who own/lease or have access to Arabians and Half Arabians. Participants must reside within the Region 9 borders. This program not only rewards those who show at the Class A / Community and One Day
shows, but those who show at any Open Show (including 4-H Shows) within the Region. Even if the individual doesn’t show, there is a category for Competitive and Endurance Riding, as well as Recreational Riding which encompasses daily pleasure riding and just having a great time with your horse !
The program honors those Champion, Reserve and Top Five placing in the following Categories:
English/ Country Pleasure Costume/Show Hack / Side Saddle Hunter Pleasure
Ranch Riding English Trail Western Trail

In addition, the Program will award the follow age Groups:
10 and under 13 and under
Walk Trot Canter
40 to 55 over 55 (should you admit it!)
Awards are given out to the participants at the January meeting, currently being held in the DFW Area in January. A Banquet showcasing the National Champions and the Regional Champions as well as photos
of all members are shown during the Banquet in a slide presentation. This year the Banquet will be at the DFW Marriott Hotel on Jan. 27, 2018.
There is a slight cost of $20.00 per horse and rider combination. This helps to offset the cost of the ribbons and trophies. The competition year runs from Jan 1, to Dec. 31 of each year. Members need not track their results from Class A shows, or NATRC rides, as the program director does that. Those who attend Open/ 4-H or other qualifying shows are asked to send in an Open Show Report so those points can be tallied. The recreational riding form can be sent once a quarter. Both forms, as
well as the entry form for the 2018 year will be on the Region 9 Web site.
