MO-KAN Border Bonanza Schedule Updated!
Thanks to some eagle-eyed yearling owners, the MO-KAN Border Bonanza
show committee has realized that classes for amateurs showing yearlings
at our 2015 show were inadvertently left out of our show schedule. The
committee has made changes to the Saturday morning schedule to rectify
this, and would like to get the word out to our amateur exhibitors that
yes, you can bring your yearlings! We love yearlings! The EKAHA, GKCAHA
and the show committee regret any panic or confusion we may have caused,
because we strive to make our show the best it can be, with happy

This will mark the second year that Rain Dancer
Arabians is sponsoring the Amateur Versatility Buckle at the MO-KAN
Border Bonanza. It’s FREE to enter and trophy buckles will be awarded to
both a youth winner and an adult amateur winner.
So what’s it all about?
Each entrant, which is defined as a
horse/rider pair, will select 3 classes from the MO-KAN Border
Bonanza class list to count toward the versatility competition.
At least ONE of those classes MUST be an
in-hand class, and at least ONE class must be a performance class.
The third class can be an in-hand OR a performance class.
Breeding/halter and showmanship divisions
both count for in-hand classes
Any performance division counts toward the
performance class requirement
Follow the normal MO-KAN Border Bonanza show
entry procedure for the classes chosen
The same rider/handler and horse combination
must perform together in all three classes
All entrance must have youth or amateur
status, but open classes may be used toward the versatility
Points will be calculated based on placings
in each class and the number of horses in each class. The more
entries in your class, the more points you can earn in it.
Total points in your chosen classes will be
figured, with the high point youth and high point adult amateur
awarded as winners.
To enter, fill out the
Versatility Competition entry form. Entries must be submitted
before the show office closes on Thursday evening, prior to the
start of the show on Friday.
Biography of GKCAHA
The Greater Kansas City Arabian Horse
Association was chartered in 1964, as the original AHA affiliate in the
Kansas City area. The Club has sponsored major Region 11 Class A shows
for over 20 years.
Many members serve on Regional and National
Committees, and are active as workers and exhibitors at the various
National Championships. GKCAHA sponsors a successful one-day All-Breed
show, as well as a biennial training clinic featuring nationally-known
trainers which attracts attendees from across the Midwest. The Midwinter Celebration is an annual tradition
for all members, which honors the High Point winners of the show season
at a dinner and presentation of awards.
Owner Rule added to Code of Ethics
A new statement has been added to the AHA Code
of Ethics under ETHICS 104, with notice that competitors may be subject
to Ethical Practice Review filings under the following: “It is unethical to transfer or assist or
facilitate in the transfer of a horse with the
intent to circumvent the purpose of the
rules regarding ownership of horses shown in the amateur and/or junior
owner classes. It is unethical for
any AHA member to
provide information relating to the transfer in question that is
requested by the
Probably Cause Panel or the Ethical
Practice Review Board.”
In determining whether the transfer was unethical, the EPRB may
consider, among others, the following:
Horse ending up back in the previous owners name within a
year of the original transfer.
Horse being transferred at less than fair market value (owner
to provide proof of sales amount)
The fact that prize money went to a person other than the owner
or family member.
The fact that the owner or family member did not pay the
expenses relating to the upkeep and showing of the horse.
