Classic, Modern, AMHR, ASPR

Two national shows hosted by the organization, the ASPC Congress and AMHR Nationals, bring the highest level of competition to the show ring and represent breed perfection. There are also levels of achievement that include All Star, Hall of Fame and Excellence awards. Choice awards are presented at the annual National Convention in November, this includes the Pony of the Year, Horse of the Year, Breeder of the Year, People Hall of Fame and ASPC and AMHR Hall of Fame Awards.

The addition of AMHR Western Stock Halter Division and Classes was proposed by Jacki Loomis at the 2017 Annual Convention and passed.  Ten (10) Introductory Western Stock Halter Classes will be offered in 2018.  There are 23 additional classes that can be offered but these are non-rated classes (no points awarded). This new division celebrates the diversity of the miniature horse and welcomes new and old members from the Western Stock Horse world. 

The information and rules for this division will be included in the AMHR Halter Division Rules section of the official Rulebook.

AMHR Western Stock Halter

General Impression: The appearance of the AMHR Miniature Horse exhibited in the Western Stock Halter classes will be that of a small, attractive, durable athlete exhibiting usability, a willing temperament and good manners. The Western Stock Halter horse will be a balanced athlete with a smooth, fit, well-muscled body.  The gait of the Western Stock Halter horse will be purposeful and ground-covering with straight, low strides that have little flexion of the knees and hocks.  The head and neck will be carried in a level, relaxed position extending out from the body.  The Western Stock Halter horse will have adequate bone and substance for its sex, it will not be fine or delicate which are negative traits for a Western Stock Halter horse who should exhibit usability.

Judging Criteria:  Shall be judged using the Standard of Style of the Western Stock Halter horse and the required Presentation and Appointments specified for this division, judged 75% on conformation and 25% on presentation and appointments.

Conformation:

conformation WesternStockHalter

       i.  Head:  The head to be attractive, dished or not and in correct proportion to the body with small, erect ears  opening forward.  The eyes to be large and wide-set over well opened nostrils.  A short muzzle and well-formed mouth showing neither parrot mouth nor undershot jaw are desirable.
      ii.  Neck:  The neck to be medium length, slightly arched and smooth with a clean cut throat latch allowing for proper air intake when at work.  The neck should join the body at an approximate 45-degree angle just above the shoulder and should be faulted when the neck joins the body too low.  Neck carriage should be relaxed and natural extending out from the body instead of up.
    iii.  Shoulders:  The well sloped shoulder, approximately 45-degrees, in conjunction with a short, strong back, allows the horse to move with a long smooth stride.
    iv.  Chest and Forelegs:  As shown by a deep heart girth and wide-set forelegs, the horse is broad chested and set atop straight legs originating from the corners of the body, narrow chest should be faulted.  The legs to be smooth jointed with short cannon bones, clean ankles and moderately angled fetlocks of medium length.
     v.  Body:  Round, full ribbed with nicely defined muscling and well-sprung ribs; back and loin short and well-muscled, underline long.  
    vi.  Hindquarters:  Muscular, rounded croup and well-angled hip of a performance horse; the hindquarters and gaskin to be deep and fully muscled through the thigh, stifle, gaskin and down to the hock indicating strength and usability.  Hocks wide set, deep and straight.
   vii.  Gait:  Purposeful and ground-covering with straight, low strides that have little flexion of the knees and hocks and looks suitable to a horse whose work could be outside of the show ring. 

WesternStock harness
