About the Award
Since 2005 the UK WAHO Trophy has presented annually to one UK bred Arabian horse chosen by the AHS Council from nominations submitted to them. WAHO asks that the AHS should look for an Arabian horse which has in some way been an excellent “ambassador” for the breed or, in the case of older horses, has achieved the same through its immediate progeny. Furthermore, the WAHO Trophy can of course be awarded for a different reason or category each year. WAHO also asks our Society to give this careful consideration, and use broad parameters when making the choice.
The winner must be a Pure Bred Arabian registered in the Arab Horse Society Stud Book and have been bred and still domiciled in the UK. It must also be present at the Show to receive the award.
The Trophy & Certificate
The bas-relief bronze sculpture is an Annual Challenge trophy, so it must be returned to Windsor House by 31st January each year to be awarded to a new winner the following July at the AHS National Championship Show.
A special Certificate commemorating the award will also be provided by WAHO, suitably inscribed with the name of the winner and presented as a permanent reminder to the recipient of the wonderful achievement.
How to nominate a horse for the WAHO Trophy
Nominations for the Award should be submitted on the WAHO Trophy Nomination form and sent to The Chairman of the Shows & Events Committee at Agriculture House by 29th January 2017. The trophy will be presented at the 2017 National Show and the winning horse must be present at the Show.
All nominated horses must be registered with the AHS in the name of the current owner. The award is open to UK bred Purebred Arabians who are promoting the breed, for example through outstanding achievement in performance disciplines, showing or through its immediate progeny.
