Helping Hands- This category is for anyone who is volunteering at ANY horse-related activity, event, or any non-profit horse organization or is assisting horse-participants on the ground in any capacity so as to make the rider/driver’s life easier at an event. If someone walks as a side-walker in a parade, they get both a parade point and a helping hands point.
Historical Reenactment- This is for any member, with or without a horse, who is educating the public on horse-related history. It is also for any member who is participating in any historical event provided by a museum, community-event, or festival where the member is advancing and helping to create a historical atmosphere.
Social Butterfly- this is for participating in all horse-related social events, chapter meetings, business meetings, and outings whereby the entire club is invited to the social event in advance of the event. At least 4 people must turn out for the event for a social point to be logged.
Miles logged- Participants may track their miles logged for horseback riding or carriage driving for the entire year. Awards will be given to the most miles logged. This can include miles walked by human horse-helpers! If you are a parade walker and sidewalk at parades, you can log your miles walked at events in which you are assisting horse-participants. Miles logged for human walkers is for volunteering at horse events only. This may include horse shows and horse events where the human walker is assisting in the “helping hands” defined category.
