Submitting of Points
Change is a foot! 

Points from PHAA approved shows do not need to be submitted as they will be automatically included when results are submitted by the Show organisers.

As of the 1st December 2019 all points from all other shows must be submitted by the competitor within 14 days of the event, to the PHAA office on the official form (from a PHAA points recording book). Not all classes are eligible for points so check out the PHAA Rule book for points eligible events.

 Submissions are now accepted via email
these can be lodged via
Using the following format
Title Line: Points Lodgment - [NAME] [ID#]

To avoid paying any fees, simply follow the below information and start earning TODAY!

Make it Count

In order to be awarded the full amount of points you are entitled to, it is important that you complete your Official Show Results Form ("Points Book") correctly.

The most common recording errors are:

  • Incorrectly recording the name of the event
  • Including more than one division on the one sheet - such as youth events on the same sheet as open events.
  • Missing Information

Halter Events

Things have changed!
As of the 1st August 2019, exhibitors will automatically be awarded the following:

  • Champion = 1 point
  • Reserve Champion = 0.5 point

Please ensure that if you are using an old book, you write Champ or Res Champ in the box at the bottom, where you would normally write how many in a class. 


Name of Event

Be careful that you record the event name exactly as it is shown on the show program, and if the classes are numbered include the class number in the column on the left of the form.

Youth, Amateur and Open

You should complete new sheets for your Youth results, your Amateur results and your "Horse" or Open results. So in effect, you could have 3 sheets for the same horse at one show if he competes in youth, amateur and open classes. The only exception to this is Halter classes, whether the class is a Paint Halter, Amateur Paint Halter or Youth Paint Halter class it will go on the horses sheet.

Missing Information

You may be surprised how many people forget to put horses registration numbers, membership numbers or do not have the sheet signed by the Show Secretary. Always, rule off the unused lines before asking for a signature. Last of all make sure you attach a copy of the show program with your points sheet when mailing it to the PHAA Office.

By following all of these steps you will get the points that you deserve, help in having paperwork turned around promptly and at the same time avoid being charge paperwork penalty fees. Best of all, encourage your club to have their shows "PHAA Approved" and then the Show Secretary has the job of sending all of the results to the PHAA on your behalf.

Ensure that you include a program/draw/order of events with every submission. 

Points recording books can be obtained from the PHAA office for a fee of $30 (including postage).
