Westfalen Verband NA is proud to provide awards for high-achieving Westfalen horses and their owners. We are an official Participating Organization for USDF All Breeds awards, and also provide USEF and USEA Performance awards. We provide High Point and Reserve ribbons upon request for recognized horse shows and competition series (i.e. USDF Dressage shows, USEF sanctioned shows, Sallie B. Wheeler Hunter Breeding Championship, Young Horse Series competitions, Stallion and Mare performance tests, etc.).
USDF All Breeds Awards — send a copy of your horse's registration papers to USDF and declare your Participating Organization to be Westfalen NA if you have a Westfalen registered horse (registration number beginning with DE 44141… or DE 34141….) You must also be an active member of the Westfalen NA in order to receive USDF All Breeds Awards.
In order to be eligible for USEF Performance awards (hunter, jumper, or eventing awards), membership dues must be current. Horses showing must be recorded with USEF - either with a lifetime registration or annually. Only recorded horses will show up on the USEF Year-End Awards lists. A USEF HID Number (Horse Identification Number) is NOT sufficient as we must be able to find your horse's show records with USEF in order to give awards.
The owner of the horse must be the owner on record with Westfalen Verband NA. If you have purchased a horse from a breeder or another individual, make sure that you are the owner of record. For more information on becoming the owner of record, please see the transfer of ownership section.
Please fill out and send in the following form so we will know which divisions you are showing in. Include on the form your horse's registered name as well as his show name. Without this form, we do not know where to look in USEF's long and extensive lists. DEADLINE FOR THE APPLICATION IS SEPTEMBER 30. (Competition year ends Nov. 30.) Awards will be given for the highest placing DECLARED WESTFALEN horse in each division.
