2016 show season is underway!!
November 1, 2015 through October 31, 2016

Enroll your horse in the NMPEA yearend awards program before your first show and start earning points towards yearend awards! Points can be earned in PHBA approved classes (palomino and palomino bred) and up to six non-sanctioned shows held in NM (such as Quarter Horse Shows, Hunter/Jumper Events, 4-H Shows, All-Breed Shows and more). Only points from shows held in NM count towards the NMPEA yearend awards; but horses, exhibitors and owners need not reside in NM. Check your PHBA membership card to make sure your NM affiliate membership is current (NMPEA affiliate memberships are available if you live outside NM). See complete yearend award rules or summary listed on the enrollment form. NMPEA also awards a participation award at our year end banquet. Each entry in a PHBA sanctioned class offered in NM enters NMPEA members in a drawing for the participation award.
