Each year the HSGB points awards is getting more and more popular and more and more closely contended!
Its a great way to keep track of what you and your Haflinger have been up to over the past year whilst raising the profile of our wonderful breed.
I’ve been to many shows and the organisers have often enjoyed looking at my points book and what my Haflinger had been up to over the points book season and many have commented on what a versatile breed they are
You can earn points for practically all activities you and your Haflinger do .
From dressage to magazine articles, show jumping to fun rides, hunting to clinics
The only thing you don’t earn points for is weekly lessons or someone professionally schooling or riding your Haflinger and everyday riding/schooling
There are 5 sections and the winner of each section will be awarded with a trophy and placings to 8th place and personalized certificates to all Placings and prizes are awarded on Friday night of the Breed Show
