Our Mission:

The mission of the Blue Ridge Horse Force is to promote grassroots showmanship and sportsmanship by uniting local open horse shows.

Show Sanctioning:

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.

Who Benefits:

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.

Point System:

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

6th~1 point

Year-End Awards are given in 42 different divisions!
