Local & Rated Showing / Galaxy IEA Middle & High School Teams SPECIAL AWARD NOMINATIONS

Sportsmanship This award is presented to a junior rider and senior rider who consistently exhibit good sportsmanship while competing at PCHA by having a good attitude towards their competitors, their trainer, their equine athlete and their barn mates. In addition, this rider shows grace and dignity when winning or losing. Best Show Mom & Show Dad This award is presented to a show mom and show dad who consistently goes above and beyond in supporting their rider. Always at the show watching their rider and helping them get ready, the best show moms and dads do way more than just show up. Behind the Scenes This award may be presented to anyone involved in the show including a trainer, groom, in-gate person, judge or crew member from the horse show personnel. There are many folks who go above and beyond every horse show helping others. Help us highlight those who work behind the scene in helping things to run smoothly. Dudley L. Hatch Memorial Fund This award is given out of love and remembracnce for a man who dedicated many hours to the Pinellas County Hunter Association. Each year a trainer from a different barn will nominate one of their students who they deem most deserving and dedicated to receive $500 in horse show credit to any of the six PCHA shows in the current show year. This award is intended to go to a student who does not have their own horse, but is dedicated to the sport and has shown at PCHA. This is a wonderful gift and honor to receive this award.


Words cannot do justice to Clair , Anne , Charlie and the support team of Kingsmeade Farm for going above and beyond all we dare to dream bringing out the best in us as riders and our horses


Lilly and Charlotte Mack Mommy and daddy are so proud of all of your hard work and determination.We love you more than the moon and stars.

PCHA Rider Incentive Award The Pinellas Country Hunter Association is blessed with having the means to give back some monetary rewards to their members each year. We hope to enhance the prestige of all equestrian events. PCHA offers an extended rider incentive program. It is offered in two age categories for our junior riders. To qualify for this rider incentive, the junior rider must complete an application, date it and turn it in to the show office. Points accrue from the show that the application was submitted and not before. The rider incentive is divided into two age groups: Juniors with the ages 13-17 and juniors 12 & Under. In their age group, the three high point riders in all PCHA hunter, equitation, 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 group will be $1,000; the second and third place awards will be $500 each. No one rider will be eligible to receive rider incentive money more than two times in one or both age categories combined. Good luck next year and don’t forget to fill out that application!

Congratulations to our 2015 Winners!

12 & Under 1st - Olivia Iglesias 2nd - Grace Erickson 3rd - Claire Davidson

13-17 1st - Emma Breneisen 2nd - Morgan Mulcaley 3rd - Caitie Calistri

PCHA GIVES BACK In May, PCHA held a basket raffle and horseless jumping competition. All proceeds went towards funding the Rider Incentive Program. This year, we raised over $2,000! The 2016 PCHA Fall Hunter Classic and Silent Auction raised $3,800 with PCHA donating another $200 to benefit Equestrian Inc. Horse Rescue with a total of $4,000. PCHA also gave back to the United States Equestrian Foundation by donating $1,000 to the USEF Equine Disaster Relief Fund.

The PCHA Junior Leadership Board offers junior members the opportunity to build leadership skills while donating their time to PCHA. The 2016 Junior Board Members hosted two judges Q&A sessions, a junior social, the horseless horse show and selected this year’s sportsmanship award winners. We thank them for their service and dedication to PCHA. Congratulations to the following members on being selected for the 2017 Junior Leadership Board: Hailey DeBrunner, Addison Diaz, Anissa Jessee, McKenzie Mezrah, Amelia Redd, Charlotte Wiese and Avery Zwirn
