In addition to the prestigious Golden Horse Awards; PHBA will offer a Palomino Bred All Around award at the 2016 Palomino World Championship Horse Show. This is an Open division award.
Awards will be given to the Champion and Reserve Champion.
Criteria for the Palomino Bred Open All Around award
Horses must enter and show in at least five (5) classes in at least three (3) of the following categories:
Category I Halter
Category II Trail, Western Pleasure
Category III Hunter Under Saddle
Category IV Western Riding
Category V Barrel Racing, Flags, Pole Bending
The horse accumulating the most points in the WCHS will win these awards. A horse will receive one point for each horse placing below them plus one point. Points are calculated through tenth place. Should a tie occur the winner would be the horse earning points in the greatest number of events. Additional ties will be broken in favor of the horse with the most first place awards. Should a tie still occur, the winner will be determined by the flip of a coin. Similar classes in different divisions will not be counted towards the Palomino Bred Open All Around Award.
