PSHR Grand Champion Sire of the Year

The Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry (PSHR™) will sanction any show that offers open model classes at no cost to the club or association presenting the show.

ALL stallions nominated for this competition must be registered with the PSHR and all the offspring entered into shows as the "Offspring of Sire" must be registered with the PSHR. There is no limit to the number of offspring that can show for one sire.

The stallion with the highest points will be awarded PSHR Grand Champion Sire of the Year and will be acknowledged on the front entrance page of this web site and a PSHR Grand Champion Sire of the Year plague will be given.

Only the offspring (not their sires) must be entered and shown in their respective halter/model classes for the sire to be eligible for this award. Sire does not have to be shown. Offspring of any age can be shown. Mixed ownership of horses shown is permissible, but all horses must be registered in the PSHR for their points to count. A nomination fee of $25.00 must be paid for each sire nominated.

Points will be accumulated in model or halter classes only. You may enter offspring in any open model or halter class in any show and your points will accumulate for the sire, provided you have filed a nomination form and paid the fee for the sire's nomination and have the Get of Sire Show Results form signed and dated by the show's management.

*Sire : the male parent of an equine.
**Get: The offspring of a Stallion. The male is said to "get" the offspring on the female, thus the collective term "get" for his young. The class for this award is Get of Sire, thus the young by the same stallion are shown.
