Canadian horses have excelled
at the highest levels in the sport of combined driving and are increasingly
competing and winning in open classes at club to advanced levels
in Jumping, Dressage, English and Western horsemanship. To
encourage the participation of CHHAPS members in open competitions
and to recognize the achievement of performance excellence by their
Canadian horses in specific disciplines, CHHAPS has established
the Performance Awards Program. These performance horses are
ambassadors of the Canadian breed, and CHHAPS feels that they should
be recognized for their efforts.
CHHAPS' plan is to acknowledge
and reward owners and their Canadians for outstanding performance
in the show ring. It should be noted that the emphasis of this award
program is on competition and performance.
Points are cumulative.
If sufficient points are not collected during the year to qualify

future year awards. If points are not submitted each year,

will be published in the newsletter along with the award announcements.

who own either pure or partbred Canadians to participate in this
