The OPHA plans to begin awarding points on June 1, 2020.

In order to receive points, horse shows must comply with the current local and state regulations, and rated shows must also comply with the current USEF regulations.

State, local, and USEF laws and regulations are subject to change, and the OPHA suggests that you refer to the listed websites for the most current information to assist you in your decision as to whether to attend a particular horse show.

Keep checking the OPHA calendar on our website, www.opha.org for canceled horse shows.

If you are traveling to out-of-state horse shows make sure you check that state’s Covid-19 guidelines.
