The Pinellas County Hunter Association is offering an extended scholarship program.
It is offered in two age categories for our junior riders. To qualify for this scholarship,
the junior rider must complete an application, date it and turn it in to the show office
or give it to a PCHA board member.
Please be aware that points will be accrued from the show that the application was submitted
and not before.
There are two scholarship age groups:
Juniors with the ages 13 -17 (rider must be 13 as of December 1st of the show year)
Juniors 12 & under (rider must be 12 or under as of December 1st of the show year)
Our show year begins December 1st and ends November 30th of the next year. All applicants
must be paid members of that show year and have a Social Security number. In each age group,
the three high point riders in all PCHA hunter, equitation and jumper classes will receive
monetary rewards that we hope will go toward deferring the cost of education on the college
level while awarding their achievements in their equestrian endeavors. The first place
award in each age group will be $1,000. The second and third place awards will be $500 each.
No one rider will be eligible to receive scholarship money more than twice in one or both
age categories combined. If it is found that a junior has cross-entered in any divisions
that are not allowed as stated in the class specifications in the prize list, their
scholarship application will be null and void.
All scholarship applicants will be required to check in with the horse show office at
the end of each show to record the divisions/classes they entered and horses/ponies they
showed. Points will NOT count for that show if you fail to record your results.
PCHA is blessed with having the means to give back some monetary rewards to their
membership each year. We hope to enhance the prestige of all equestrian events.
Thank you from the PCHA Board of Directors.
