Happy new year from all of us at the American Roan Horse Association!
With your help and continued support we have achieved a very important milestone… TEN YEARS of being an association! In the uncertain economy over that period of time, we have kept our focus on building our memberships and providing more shows for you to participate in and more awards to work toward with your roan horse.
Our website that was completely redone in 2015 and completely updated in 2018, has proven to be very informative as well as user friendly with our logo merchandise available but mainly to expedite memberships and registrations quickly and efficiently so you can get out there and start showing.
Our annual Fast Fifty enrollment has been important to maintaining our extraordinary paybacks and continues to be a well supported way for our members to see a good return on their fees. As our number of shows increase we have revised the payment and payout structure to keep up with the ever increasing participation.
Fast Fifty Plus:
To celebrate our 10 year anniversary we will be raising the Fast Fifty Plus payout limit to $450.00 with our new and improved program. The annual enrollment fee will be $75.00. The revised payback program has some added perks.
A new form for documenting these classes will be available for participating members who will be submitting official class results from show management to our home office after your show.
We will still be adding money to select shows, but our designated show added money payouts are not added into the Fast Fifty Plus limit. You can find a complete list of our added money shows at www.ridearoan.com.
High Point Plus:
To go along with this amazing expansion of the Fast fifty Plus program is our High Point Plus program. You were already able to accumulate points at designated shows, but now you can use our point system to compete for year end awards at any show you go to. The annual enrollment fee will be $75.00. Participating members will be responsible for submitting official class results to our home office for recording. There will be year end awards to 10 placings. Complete rules, forms and awards list can be found on our website.
High Point Youth:
The High Point Youth program is set up just like the High Point Plus program. You can go to any show and send in the official show results to our home office. Annual enrollment fee of $25.00 and complete rules, forms, and awards schedule can be seen at www.ridearoan.com.
With bringing in 2018 a major step forward for us is to become a Non Profit 501-5c entity. The process has been started. We have always put all money we have received right back into our payout programs, so nothing will change in that regard, but this does open us up for more growth and being able to do more for our membership.
Member Representative Program:
We hope to have more participation from the membership to help the association grow. To facilitate this we are asking for you to be our advocates at shows you already go to by reaching out to roan owners there, sharing what our association is about, and helping them to sign up to be a part of this quickly growing association. We will send out welcome kits to those interested that can be taken to their area shows. In turn we will be reporting news and items of interest on a regular basis from these show representatives. Send us pics, we would love to share them! firstname.lastname@example.org
