WHBA Awards are designed to encourage our members to go out and get involved with their WHBA registered animals. Some awards are easily attained within the calendar year. Others are honors that are awarded for lifetime achievements. The more you are involved with your WHBA mustang, mule or burro, the more recognition you are able to earn!
The purpose of the Equine Good Citizen Award is to encourage adopters to work with their animals and give them a skill set that increases their value, thereby giving them a better chance of being rehomed in the future if need be. It also helps develop a bond, as well as pride of ownership, between human and animal.
This honor is awarded to any WHBA registered mustang, mule or burro who earns individual titles in Superior Event, Trail/Pleasure and Community Service awards during its lifetime.
Any WHBA registered horse, mule or burro which earns 50 points in one WHBA recognized event during its lifetime. (See CPP for more details on earning points and recognized events.)
