The American Quarter Horse Association will be recognizing Intermediate-level competitors at four of its world championship shows this year.
At the 2012 Built Ford Tough AQHYA, Adequan Select, Bank of America Amateur and FedEx Open world championship shows, AQHA will recognize the top-three Intermediate exhibitors in each youth, amateur, Select amateur and open class. New this year, each individual halter class will have Intermediate awards. All Intermediate achievements will also appear on the official records of the horse and exhibitor.
“This is a great way to practice the show or competition-leveling concepts that AQHA has been exploring over the last couple of years,” said AQHA President Gene Graves of Grand Island, Nebraska. “By recognizing the Intermediate exhibitor, AQHA is highlighting exhibitors who have worked hard to qualify for our world shows, and who are tough competitors at our world shows year after year, but who haven’t made into the top 10 before.”
The Intermediate exhibitor recognition package will include an 8-inch clear globe for first place and 6-inch clear globes for second and third place. Each Intermediate champion will also receive a specially designed patch that can be placed on a qualifiers jacket that can be purchased by the exhibitor. The top three Intermediate exhibitors will also have the option to purchase a championship buckle.
