Houston, TX: Hanoverian enthusiasts gathered from across the USA to receive coveted AHS Year End Award ribbons, trophies and coolers at the gala AHS Annual Awards Banquet in Houston, TX on Friday evening, February 7, 2014. The American Hanoverian Society Awards Program was developed to reward Hanoverians competing in sport. It has evolved over the years and awards are now given for dressage, eventing, hunters and jumpers, and sport horse breed shows. In addition to the regular year-end performance awards in these categories, a number of perpetual trophies and a Futurity Awards program have been established to acknowledge outstanding individual performances in sport as well as during the Annual Inspection Tour.

Dressage
In dressage, we sponsor the Hanoverian All-Breeds Awards through the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) and give 14 awards for all the levels of competition including Freestyles. The Dressage Horses of the Year are chosen from among these winners.

Congratulations to all horses and their owner’s receiving awards in the USDF Hanoverian All-Breeds division. Detailed information on these horses is listed on the AHS website.

Hunters, Jumpers and Hunter Division Winners
In the hunters and jumpers, we recognize the top Hanoverians competing in all of the USEF recognized divisions, including the Hunter Breeding divisions. There is also a Young Jumper Award Program that recognizes horses competing in other divisions that the USEF does not track. Competitors in hunters and jumpers MUST be enrolled in the AHS Awards Program in order to be eligible for year-end awards! Please compete and submit the Performance Awards Form by September 30th of the competition year!

Congratulations to all horses and their owner’s receiving awards in the hunter/jumper division. Detailed information on these horses is listed on the AHS website.

Eventing
For eventing, the AHS awards a High Score Award at each of the 5 levels of the sport recognized by the USEA and the USEF – from Novice through Advanced. Competitors in eventing MUST be enrolled in the AHS Awards Program in order to be eligible for year-end awards! Please compete and submit the Performance Awards Form by September 30th of the competition year!

Congratulations to all horses and their owner’s receiving awards in the eventing division. Detailed information on these USEA winning horses is listed on the AHS website.

Sport Horse Breeding
For the Sport Horse Breed Shows Awards, we keep track of the points earned by the Hanoverians competing in the USDF Breed Shows and reward the highest scoring young horses – both fillies and colts/geldings, the highest scoring mature mares, and the highest scoring stallion (AHS licensed).

Congratulations to all horses and their owner’s receiving awards in the sport horse breeding division. Detailed information on these winning horses is listed on the AHS website.
