The American Morgan Horse Association Board of Directors recently voted to accept changes to its Star Rating program, to take effect starting with the 2018 show season.
The program no longer will have four star rated shows; there only will be one show, a Star Rated Show. These shows' criteria is similar to the previous 3 Star Show; shows will have places 1-2 qualify for the Morgan Grand National; the fee to become a Star Rated show remains at $50; and it will follow USEF rules in terms of show dates. USEF "r" or "R" judges also need be hired. High-point certificates are available upon request.
