Special Recognition Award

In addition to all the class champions and high point award winners, the AHAA annually awards a Special Recognition Award. This award is presented to an AHAA member(s) who has made great contributions, etc to the AHAA and the Appaloosa Horse.

People can contact a board member to suggest someone for this year's presentation which will be at the Annual Awards Presentations.

The Awards Committee takes the nominations and the AHAA Board of Directors makes the final decision as to who receives the award.
