NAN-Qualifying Shows

Any live model horse show shall be eligible for NAN-Qualifying Show status provided all requirements for membership 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.

NAN-Qualifying Shows qualify the top two horses in each class for the North American Nationals, i.e., "NAN". Each NAMHSA Member shall have 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 member 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.

In order to apply to be a member show, each applicant must send a completed NAN-Qualifying Show application form, a copy of the show packet, and the membership dues to the NAMHSA Show Secretary. The fee per show depends on the total number of NAN tickets requested - a fee schedule is available on the membership application form. NAMHSA accept credit cards, checks, and money orders. NAMHSA also accepts PayPal for member show fees, sent to

Please be reminded that you must submit BOTH your NAN-Qualifying Show application AND fees to NAMHSA at least 60 days in advance of your show date.

The Secretary (or his/her designee) shall review the application materials and, provided all requirements are met, shall add the show to the NAN-Qualifying Shows listed on the website.

Show holders will receive a welcome letter and NAN tickets. If you have any questions or require hard copies of any documents, please e-mail the NAMHSA Show Secretary or write to:
