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 exhibitors!

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 requirements

  • 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.

Forms available!


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.


Amateur 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        not 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.
