NAMHSA Reciprocity Program

NAMHSA would like to announce an exciting new program to help foster international relations and help grow our hobby!

On March 13, 2013, The Board Of Directors approved a reciprocity program so that other countries with similar organizations could accept NAN cards for entry into their national shows and NAMHSA could accept their cards for NAN.

The requirements are as follows:

Requirements for reciprocity:
  • 1. A card system like the one NAMHSA employs. Cards must be given to the 1st and 2nd place horses in each qualifying class.
  • NAMHSA's card color scheme is:
  • Green - Breed Halter
  • Yellow - Collectibility/Workmanship/Non-Breed Halter
  • Pink - Performance
  • Matching colors are not required, but cards from each division should be clearly marked.
  • 2. Results should be accessible for reference by the NAN registrar. These should be presented in a searchable format such as a PDF file or Word Document.
  • Results must come from the organization.
  • 3. Cards from other countries are ONLY valid for NAN entry, not the Merit Award Program. Cards from other countries are only valid for NAN Entry for the dates printed on them.
  • 4. Qualifying shows for the national show for an organization seeking reciprocity must go through an approval process similar to NAMHSA's, where the show is submitted to and approved by an individual or group of individuals and cards issued by the governing body.
  • 5. Organizations seeking reciprocity must allow for a level playing field. To that end, customizers should not be permitted to judge their own work and showholders should not be permitted to judge their own models or models they have owned within the last 6 months.
Reciprocity will be considered on a case by case basis by the BOD and may be reviewed and revoked at any time if the BOD deems necessary.

Organizations are welcome to apply at this time. Applications just need to be a point by point statement of how the above requirements are met, along with a website link, and should be sent to
