2014 - Year of the Horse!
The spirit of the
horse is recognized to be the Chinese people's ethos – making
unremitting efforts to improve themselves. It is energetic, bright,
warm-hearted, intelligent and able. Ancient people liked to designate an
able person as 'Qianli Ma', a horse that covers a thousand li a day (one
li equals 500 meters).
in the year of the horse have ingenious communicating techniques and in
their community they always want to be in the limelight. They are
clever, kind to others, and like to join in a venture career. Although
they sometimes talk too much, they are cheerful, perceptive, talented,
earthy but stubborn. They like entertainment and large crowds. They are
popular among friends, active at work and refuse to be reconciled to
failure, although their endeavor cannot last indefinitely.
They cannot bear too much constraint.
However their interest may be only superficial and lacking real
substance. They are usually impatient and hot blooded about
everything other than their daily work. They are independent and rarely
listen to advice. Failure may result in pessimism. They usually have
strong endurance but with bad temper. Flamboyant by nature, they are
wasteful since they are not good with matters of finance due to a lack
of budgetary efficiency. Some of those who are born in the horse like to
move in glamorous circles while pursuing high profile
careers. They tend to interfere in many things and frequently fail to
finish projects of their own.

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.
