Saddle Seat/Western Seat/ Hunt Seat Pleasure Medal Finals

Jun 13, 2020

Due to the amount of pleasure shows that have been cancelled and the number of entries we get in these medals there will be no qualifying necessary for the 2020 NEHC Medal Finals in these divisions. We have exhibitors from other states as far as PA involved in these medals and we do not feel there will be enough shows to get these exhibitors qualified. For these finals being a member of NEHC is the requirement to compete at the finals.

If you plan to participate at the final you will need to contact By October 12, 2020
