American Morgan Horse Association Board to Consider Half-Morgan Registry
In 1996, the AMHA Board of Directors (BOD) established a committee to investigate the possibility of establishing a Half-Morgan Registry. In 1997, the issue was placed on the 1998 proxy ballot as a non-binding referendum in an attempt to measure the member's interest in the issue. The results of the referendum indicated interest in the project, and the BOD continued investigation into the feasibility of the project. In 1999, the Board tabled the study until the AMHA's hardware and software conversion could be completed.

Horses Needed for 2004 FEI Children's Jumping Final
Hummingbird Nest Farm in Simi Valley, CA, will be the site of the 2004 FEI Children's Jumping Final, November 22-28, which hosts competitors from around the world who have qualified in their native country. Due to the expense of shipping horses, the riders will not bring their own mounts. Since the U.S. is the host nation for this international competition, which is contested on borrowed horses, we must provide enough horses for the 32 riders.

Youth Programs: Horses and Kids Go Hand-in-Hand
Horses permeate our society. Despite technological advances, the speed with which we do things, and intense demands on our time, horses remain a significant part of our culture. Turn on the television and you will see horses in commercials, as mascots, in cartoons, and in movies. Horses denote many things; they evoke excitement, friendship, freedom, adventure and magnificence. Horses appeal to adults and children alike, but children especially seemed drawn to these animals that have been part of human society for thousands of years.

Follow a Few Simple Rules to Protect Your Points
Don't be disappointed by bad points for Horse of the Year, Silver Stirrup, Year-End Show and/or Championship qualifiers. Most "bad points" can be avoided if you follow a few simple tips.
It's a little known fact that the USEF computer system assigns an 'F' in front of the USEF numbers for farms, organizations and businesses. If the 'F' is missing when points are posted, the points will be bad. Members aren't required to add the 'F' when they enter a show, but it helps USEF staff ensure that your points are good.
Recorded leases are one of the biggest sources of confusion and disappointment for members. Under USEF rules, the lessee is considered the owner for the term of the lease. That means the lessee should be reported as the owner on the entry blank. If not, points will not count. If you are leasing a horse or pony, and the lease is recorded with USEF, make sure you know the start and end date of the lease and report the owner accordingly.
Membership and Horse Recording
Do your paperwork early! It's never a good idea to wait until the last minute to record your horses or renew your membership--but if you can't avoid it, process your payment online. Your electronic receipt will help you resolve disputes if there is ever an issue on the effective date of your membership or horse recording.
Check Your Horse's Reports Early and Often
If you are competing for National or Zone awards, or trying to qualify for a certain competition, check your Horse Reports weekly. It's free, and will help you avoid last minute panics before entries close. Also, before filing any point correction, check your Horse Reports via the USEF Members Area at (https://www.usef.org/content/aua/userSystemArea.php). The rankings on the USEF website can lag behind by 24 hours, but Horse Reports are updated instantly when your results are posted. If you do need to file a point correction, use the handy form on the site at http://www.usef.org/content/pointsAwards/corrections/corrections.php for the fastest service.
