What ANWARC Provides To Its Member Clubs

1.      Gives your club members a series of Open Breed shows.


2.      Provides an opportunity to advertise in our ANWARC showbills, website, and banquet programs.


3.      Club receives $1.00 per exhibitor from their club show,

         provided they have workers (as stated in the Rule Book).


4.      Affords members who show their horses an opportunity to be eligible

         for Year-End Awards.  Beginning in 2019, FIVE Year End Awards will be offered for

         each class, based on eligibility.  Winners even get to choose their own awards!


5.      Has a lenient dress code in the Open Division, allowing beginning

         or novice riders a chance to show without spending a lot of money on

         clothes and equipment before they are ready (or can afford it).


6.      ANWARC pays ALL expenses for shows (arena rental for clubs that

         don't have their own arena, judges, ribbons, etc.)


7.      Provides limits on how much an exhibitor has to spend on entry fees.


8.      Provides classes for people who have never shown; juveniles and adults;

         and classes for the more experienced riders and horses.


9.      Shows are divided into two divisions, Open and Gaited, so there are

         classes for ALL breeds of horses (and mules).


10.    Open Division is divided into the following categories: Halter, Showmanship, Leadline,

         English (both hunt seat and saddle seat), Trail, and Western. (50 classes).


11.    Gaited Division is divided as follows: Gaited Pleasure, Walking Horse, Racking Horse, and Foxtrotter

         classes. (36 classes).

12.      Gaited Division shows are affiliated with the Heart of America Walking Horse Assn. (HAWHA) and the

           Midwest Walking Horse Trainers Assn. (MWHTA).  For those exhibitors who choose to pay a membership to one or both of those organizations, points in designated classes will count towards year end awards in those associations, as well, provided their criteria is met.

13.       Designated classes in the Gaited Division will also qualify exhibitors to show at the Arkansas State Championship Show on Labor Day weekend.  See showbill for classes that qualify.
