The AHJA board of directors met on September 12th, 2016 and voted to institute some fee changes. These type of matters are never an easy decision to make and are not taken lightly. The board felt that these changes would align AHJA more closely with other similar organizations in terms of pricing and provide additional revenue to award more scholarships for clinics and other educational experiences for our members. Starting in 2017, AHJA will begin to charge a horse recording fee for Category 1. In addition to the benefit of a new revenue stream generated from this fee for scholarships, we will also be able to better manage our horse database and ensure all horses listed are those that are still actively competing. The annual horse recording fee will be $20, or $50 for a lifetime recording. Professional members will receive a 50% discount off the recording fee. In addition to the new horse recording fee, AHJA horse show exhibitor fees will go up by $1 for both Category 1 and 2 shows. Again, the AHJA board would like to reiterate that these changes were taken very seriously, but felt that it would provide opportunities for more benefits to our members.
