The primary goal of the Clydesdale Cross Sport Horse Association Performance Award is to encourage and recognise Clydesdale Cross Sport horses and their owner / riders, in all forms of equestrian activity and competition. It is designed to encourage and reward CCSHA members who own registered Clydesdale Cross Sport horses to participate in equestrian sports and events.
The Clydesdale Cross Sport Horse is extremely versatile, members and their horses participate in a wide range of equestrian activities and the committee believes the horses should be recognised for their skills and achievements. The award will be conferred using a points system for all events attended, with extra points for placing. Double event attendance points will be awarded for events directly run by the CCSHA. Double event and placing points will also be awarded to any combination that competes at State and National level competitions. If you are attending an event that is not listed below, please contact the Award Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) to negotiate the associated points.
Once a horse accrues 500 POINTS (and those points are verified by the CCSHA Committee), it will be awarded with a beautiful woollen saddle cloth (black with gold and white trim), featuring the CCSHA Performance Award logo. Once a horse accrues 1000 POINTS (and those points are verified by the CCSHA Committee), it will be awarded with a beautiful cotton rug (black with gold and white trim), featuring the CCSHA Performance Award logo.
Points can be sent in periodically or you may wish to submit your paperwork once you have reached your goal. Please ensure you make a copy of each page in case it gets lost in the mail or suffers unforeseen damage.
IMPORTANT NOTE: During this award, the HORSE is the once that accrues the points. This means that if you have multiple riders or handlers using the same horse, ALL points accrued are eligible to be included.
