The American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., conducts a Mare Incentive Program offering cash prizes for entries in special Amateur Mare Incentive classes at specified shows. Amateur applicants must be 18 years old or older and a current senior member of The American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., (ASPC/AMHR/ASPR/NSPPR). Applications can be made through the American Shetland Pony Club home office for a $10 fee. Exhibitors are responsible to present their amateur card to show management.
Individuals without amateur cards in hand on show day may apply for an amateur card through the show office or with the Show Steward for a $15.00 show-site fee. All show-site applications and appropriate $15.00 fees must be received prior to amateur classes entered in order for the individual to be allowed to show. Show-site amateur applications will be valid for 15 days from the date fees are received by the Show Steward or show management. All show-site applications and fees will be sent to the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., office via the Show Steward with their official Steward's report. If an amateur application and fee is forgotten, a new amateur application and fee is required.
Amateur cards can not be applied for at the AMHR National Show or at ASPC/ASPR Congress.
