Honour Board

The Arabian Horse Society Honour Board

This Honour Board serves as a story of history, naming and commemorating those people, clubs and horses who have gone before us to achieve great things in our the Australian Arabian Community.

The Arabian Horse Society of Australia Ltd. recognises service and achievement by awarding the prestigious awards such as:

Honorary Life Membership - Any person who in the opinion of the Board has rendered special services of at least ten consecutive years to the Society and the Arabian breed of horses may be appointed as an Honorary Life Member by that Board.

Distinguished Service Awards - The AHSA presents Distinguished Service Awards to acknowledge the valuable support and outstanding achievements of individuals that have demonstated exceptional service to the Australian Arabian Horse community.

WAHO Trophy - The AHSA chooses one living Arabian horse each year, bred and still domiciled in Australia and registered in our WAHO approved stud book, which in the opinion of the Board deserves to be presented with this award for a particular achievement. Ideally, WAHO has requested that they should look for an Arabian horse which has itself 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.

Arabian Racehorse of the Year - The nominated horse must be a living, registered Purebred Arabian, born and resident in Australia. This horse must have been an outstanding representative in ARABIAN racing, with performance that ideally would be recognised overseas and/or outside the Arabian industry. The horse must be registered in the current owners name and the current owner must be a memuber of the AHSA Ltd.

Arabian Endurance Horse of the Year - The nominated horse must be a living, registered/recorded Purebred Arabian, Arabian Derivative or Arabian Performance Index horse, born and resident in Australia.  This horse must have been an outstanding representative in ARABIAN endurance, with performance that ideally would be recognised overseas and/or outside the Arabian industry. The horse must be a registered/recorded in the current owners name and the current owner must be a member of the AHSA Ltd.
