Nominations are needed for the Jerry Zwart Sportsmanship Award
The Jerry Zwart Sportmansship Award is awarded annually to the BRHF member who exhibits the highest level of
sportmanship and integrity. This award was established in memory of the late Jerry Zwart. Please send nominations
to Leslie Prillaman firstname.lastname@example.org
Reminder: BRHF members are responsible for reading and abiding by the rules of the classes that they enter.
Please Note: memberships are processed exactly once per week on Wednesday evenings.
Memberships must be received by a given Wednesday if you need a number for that weekend.
The mission of the Blue Ridge Horse Force is to promote grassroots showmanship
and sportsmanship by uniting local open horse shows.
To increase opportunities for those in Southwest Virginia to show their horses
in the sport they love, our organization sanctions approximately 25 shows per
year. Members work toward year end awards using a point system.
BRHF shows are held by organizations ranging from 4-H groups to civic leagues to
training stables to charitable organizations. All are able to raise more funds
for their group through increased BRHF member participation. Exhibitors can
compete at any of these shows knowing that there will be uniformity in class
descriptions and offerings.
Points are awarded according to placings at sanctioned shows as follows:
1st ~ 6 points
2nd ~ 5 points
3rd ~ 4 points
4th ~ 3 points
5th ~ 2 points
Year-End Awards are given in 42 different divisions!
