AMHR Hardship                  14

AMHA is pleased to continue to accept Hardship horses from the AMHR – which means if your “R” horse measures 34 inches or less, he or she is eligible for AMHA registration through an inspection process.  Good news for Amateurs who are looking for show divisions that meet their experience level. AMHA also offers height level split classes for beginner all the way to expert and the new added division for Stock Type minis as well. Now more than ever, AMHA has a class just for you!
