The rules

WCRHA gives a year-end award for the “WCRHA Horse of the Year”. This award acknowledges those horses considered “war horses”, “packers”, “steady Eddys”, etc, who are high WCRHA point earners. The award will be presented at the year-end WCRHA banquet in January.

The perpetual Morrison trophy was commissioned and generously donated by Dick Randall of Lost Trail Ranch.

Any horse (no breed or age restrictions) or rider combo is eligible in any WCRHA approved class (classes excluded are NRHA Green Levels 1 & 2, WCRHA Youth Reining, WCRHA Walk/Trot 10 & Under, Futurity, Derby or Maturity classes, AQHA classes or any special classes not regularly offered). Points go toward the horse. An example is if a non pro or youth rides the horse in one class and a trainer rides the same horse in an open class, all points won by the horse will count towards the award. The award is given to the horse who gains the most points at WCRHA approved shows. In the event of a tie, the higher money earning horse will break the tie.
