Nominations will be reviewed by the nomination committee and reduced to 6 horses. Those 6 horse nomination forms are then reviewed by the CASHA board and reduced to 4 horses.

Both the OWNER AND RIDER must belong to CASHA to receive points in a given year. Be sure to note that this is a different point system than the traditional Year End Awards.
