NAMHSA Memberships

With an NAMHSA Membership, you have FULL benefits of NAMHSA membership, such as nominating and voting for your Regional Representative, voting on changes to the Bylaws and the ability to host a NAN-Qualifying Show. The membership fee is just $30 for two (2) years. Your membership fee may be paid via check or money order made payable to NAMHSA. PayPal is also accepted and must be sent to treasurer@namhsa.org.

Please note, at this time there is no requirement to be a NAMHSA Member to SHOW at a NAN qualifying show.

Host a NAN-Qualifying Show

One of the benefits of NAMHSA Membership is the ability to host a NAN-Qualifying Show (formerly called Member Show). NAN-Qualifying Shows qualify the top two horses in each class for the North American Nationals, i.e., "NAN". Your membership fee can be applied as a $30 discount toward the cost of your first show during your membership. Additional shows will be at the full cost. You can learn about hosting a NAN-Qualifying Show with our instructional packet below.

Any live model horse show shall be eligible for NAN-Qualifying Show status provided all requirements are met. Every edition of a model horse live show is considered a separate entity; therefore, a show held twice within the NAMHSA show year is considered two separate entities. Each NAMHSA Member shall have no more than one vote on issues submitted to the membership by the Board of Directors and shall have all responsibilities as stated in these Bylaws.

Our show year runs from May 1 to April 30, so any NAN-Qualifying Show held after May 1 in a given year will qualify models to enter in the following 4 years of NANs. Per a membership vote in December 2012, the NAN card validity was increased from 2 to 4 years.

NAMHSA Membership Rewards Program

The NAMHSA Membership Rewards Program was designed in 2013 to promote growth of the NAMHSA Membership program and to provide a better value for NAMHSA Members. Everyone who is a current member is entered for a chance to win an NAMHSA Membership Reward. The Rewards consist of five different certificates designed to reward NAMHSA Members for their NAMHSA membership. In addition, current members still receive the same benefits as before, which is a reduction in of NAN entry fees and the privilege to vote in NAMHSA elections for regional representatives, NAMHSA Vice President, and select bylaw changes as well as host a NAN-Qualifying Show.
