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.
