The NYSMHS Junior Exhibitor Team Challenge Award

This award is presented to the Junior Exhibitor–Horse team that accumulates the most points in a single seat at (3) USEF rated shows in New York. Along with the Jr. Exhibitor pleasure classes, equitation classes from each show will be counted. (Showmanship and Fitting & Show classes are considered as equitation classes.)


If the team shows at more than (3) shows, shows with the most points will be included. Points from the NYSMHS Western NY and NYSMHS Regional shows will automatically be counted towards the award.


If the Junior Exhibitor–Horse team shows in multiple seats, the seat with the most points will be used for calculating point standing. The team will only be entered in the award once. (I.e. if the team shows in Hunter Pleasure and Western Pleasure, only one seat will be used for calculating points.)


Junior Exhibitors participating in the Walk-Trot division will be included in this award.


Junior Exhibitor MUST be a member of the NYSMHS. Accumulation of points begins with the beginning (or renewal) of the membership. Points earned prior to the membership will not be counted. Points will be awarded per the NYSMHS High Score program with all shows carrying the same point weight and championship classes counting double. Entrance for award consideration is automatic.


A Champion and a Reserve Champion award will be presented at the NYSMHS Year End Banquet. The NYSMHS Junior Exhibitor Team Challenge Award is sponsored by Sue Gramse.  Contact Sue by phone or snail mail should you have questions. Or by emailing Patti at
