Attention Distance National Exhibitors. After careful consideration by the Arabian Horse Association and the Distance Nationals Show Commission, Distance Nationals has been suspended for the year 2020. The DHNC were to be held September 25 - 27, 2020 near La Pine, Oregon in conjunction with the Lava Cast Forest Memorial Endurance rides sanctioned by American Endurance Conference (AERC). This decision was made first and foremost with the health and safety of our competitors in mind.
Although AHA will not be involved with the ride, competitors can contact ride managers Paula and Suzy for information regarding the Lava Cast Memorial Endurance Ride.
For questions about refunds, please contact Rebecca Hankey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any entries for the Arabian Horse Association, Appaloosa Horse Club, Paso Fino Horse Association, Performance Shagya Registry, Akhal-Teke Association of America, American Morgan Horse Association and American Saddlebred Registry affiliated rides will be refunded.
The Distance Horse National Championships is the overhead titled event hosted by AHA which include Open Lava Cast Forest Rides along with breed National Championships. Our partnered breeds are the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC), the Paso Fino Horse Association (PFHA), the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry (PShR), the Akhal-Teke Association of America (ATAA) and the American Saddlebred Registry (ASR).
Along with our many National Breed Championships we also offer an Open Lava Cast Forest AHA recognized Competitive Trail Ride and several Open Lava Cast Forest Limited Distance, 50 Mile, and 100 Mile rides. This year all endurance Open Lava Cast Forest Rides will be sanctioned by the Arabian Horse Association (AHA), the American Endurance Ride Conference (AERC.) The Distance Horse National Championships have also added the LD Challenge to the event which is for the same rider/horse combination entered in the all three Open Limited Distance Rides; rules and the point schedule can be found under the Exhibitor Information tab. Remember that all Open Lava Cast Forest Rides are open to all breeds and require no qualifications or memberships!
