Supreme and Superior Awards presented by IBHA President Michael Stadler:
The 2017 IBHA Convention reaped the benefits of many hard working individuals. The Committee meetings were very progressive and many new and exciting things developed this year. The following is a recap of the major developments:
Beginning April 1, 2017 the registration requirements for the miniature horses was relaxed to include grade horses with a heighth affidavit from an approved AMHA or AMHR Steward. Beginning January 1, 2017 the use of the pull turn will be eliminated from the showmanship classes. Also taking affect next year will be the addition of Youth Western Showmanship and Hunter classes in the Miniature division. Their will also be four Ranch Horse classes: pleasure, riding, trail and conformation. The new complete rules and changes/clarifications will be on the "members" page by Dec 31st.
After the business of the Convention is over, the fun begins! Saturday evening begins with the Youth Scholarship Auction. The donations were awesome and the bidders had a great time bidding for their favorite items:) The Hall of Fame Ceremony honored the horse Scooter Gulch and members George & Marilyn Anders. Many members received awards for their accomplishments in IBHA.

Each year IBHA holds a National Convention to address the business of the Association. Committees made up of members and Executives review and vote on new rule proposals. We hold many educational seminars & meetings, most of which are open to IBHA members. In conjunction with the convention meetings is a yearly banquet to award the Honor Rolls, Reserve Honor Rolls, Supreme and Superior Awards. A scholarship auction is held and scholarship recipients are announced at this banquet. The Hall of Fame ceremony takes place at the convention.
