Sire of the Year
The CHBOA's Sire of the Year program honors the sire with the most CHBOA registered offspring each year. CHBOA registered stallions are automatically entered into the competition upon the registration of any offspring with the CHBOA.
Only CHBOA registered champagne stallions are eligible.
Only CHBOA registered offspring are counted.
Offspring are counted for the year they are registered, not the foaling date.
Numbers are tabulated on December 31st of each year.
Numbers are for one year only, they do not carry over to the next year.
This program encourages the use of the Champagne Horse as a trail or endurance riding horse. We do this by recognizing the number of hours that applicants trail ride on their CHBOA horses. Participants receive various awards depending on the number of hours they log with their registered Champagne Horse. CHBOA relies on the honor system for these logs. It is up to you to keep your logs and mail them in. Whether riding alone, with a group, endurance ride, organized trail ride or theme ride, the trail hours are acceptable. We want you to promote your Champagne!
ELIGIBILITY: Only horses registered with the Champagne Horse Breeders’ and Owners’ Association are eligible to participate in this program.
A rider may enter as many of their champagnes as they like as long as each horse is entered in the champagne trail program.
Trail riding logs will only be accepted if submitted on the official CHBOA Trail Rider Log Sheet. Hours logged should be only for actual hours of trail riding. (Please do not include hours the horse is not in movement.)
The awards will be presented as hours are completed.
100-900 MILES: A certificate will be awarded every 100 miles. Special recognition will be given on the website and in our newsletter.
1000 MILES: Applicant will awarded a certificate as well as a CHBOA ball cap. Recognition will be given to the horse and rider on the website.
2500 MILES: Applicant will be awarded a certificate and a sweatshirt containing a photo of their photo riding their CHBOA registered horse. Recognition will be given to horse and rider on the website.
5000 MILES: Applicant will receive a certificate of completion, special recognition on the website and best of all a FREE Lifetime Membership to CHBOA!!!
There will be a recognition on the CHBOA web site for the riders accumulating the most hours in each of the following age categories:
Riders 12 years and under
Riders 13 through 18
Riders 19 through 45
Riders 46 through 65
Riders 65 +
Riders age categories are determined by what age they are beginning January 1st of the year they are competing. In other words, if you are competing for trail awards in the year 2013, the CHBOA will consider you to be the age that you are on January 1, 2013 as your age category.
Applicant's age 18 years and under must have permission from parent or guardian to compete.
