Awards Program

The ISSO offers an extensive awards program to recognize the achievements and activities of our members. Categories range from the traditional such as Hunter and English Pleasure to unique Non-Competitive awards for participating in events such as demonstrations and expo booths. We host an awards banquet in late March - start planning to attend now! (A complete list of the award categories is in the Complete Points Rules.)

To be eligible to earn points, you must be a member in good standing and register yourself and your horse(s). After registration, the Points Secretary will contact you if more information is required. Of course, if you have questions, please contact her!

Points accrue from January 1 through December 31 of the year in which they are earned. Points submitted late or without correct documentation are not eligible. If you have any questions about the rules - we know people have them! - please contact the Points Secretary for clarification.

We have started an Aside Mileage Challenge (that recognizes the many miles ridden aside on the trails and elsewhere inside or outside the arena) with awards at 25, 50, and 100 miles (whichever is the highest).
