Join us for the 2nd Annual AHCA MO State Championship! Every Friday before the competition there will be a training clinic instructed by Brandy Von Holten with Double Excel Horsemanship. Make sure and call to reserve your spot in the training clinic, because it is only open to 12 participants. We will focus on you and your equine, so you can “Double Excel” together!
You can obtain your membership and register your equine the day of the event (or preferably the day before the event) at Von Holten Ranch!
There are 14 total AHCA events in the state championship, however, only your TOP 10 placings will be used to determine your state ranking. You must have at least 8 competitions to be eligible for state ranking for 2017.
AHCA is a national organization that has their national championships held in Sedalia, MO Oct.19-Oct.22, 2017. You only need to compete in 3 AHCA competitions to qualify for nationals.
Von Holten Ranch awards ribbons for the TOP 6 in every division at each AHCA competition. The AHCA has 50% payback in every division. However, if you need to decline winnings, or have your winnings awarded in the form of a gift certificate to keep your eligibility in other organizations, that is easily done to help you!
At the conclusion of the AHCA MO State Championship series, you can apply your winnings to a buckle. The buckles must be ordered through Von Holten Ranch, who must order them through the AHCA Headquarters. Only those that place in the TOP 10 will be eligible for buckles. Buckles will be awarded to say one of the following: State Champion, Reserve State Champion, Top 5, or Top 10.
In addition to the buckles for the Champions and Reserve Champions, saddle fenders can either be purchased or your own saddle fenders can be stamped through Von Holten Ranch. No other saddle makers will be permitted other than the saddle maker Von Holten Ranch uses to ensure consistency and quality standards.
Please call 660-668-0880 for any questions.
Electric sites, cabins, and stalls are available. It is highly recommended that competitors arrive the day before. Walk throughs start promptly at 7:30, and will ONLY be completed ONCE. Hearing what the judge has to say about each obstacle is extremely important.
Let’s see how much you and your equine can Double Excel together in 2017!
