The Seunta Awards Program
currently in progress - awards page, show result submission forms, finalized rules & titles, and photos of the first awards coming soon.
An update will be coming the first of 2019. Registrations and show records are still being accepted but know that submissions will take some time to be posted, as that update will also be done at the same time.
All awards are based on merits and participation in model horse activities. Awards are open to both Domestic and International showers. There are many details/photos yet to be posted! Photos of awards and cash amounts will be posted for each title and award as soon as possible. The awards program consists of goals that the model owner can work towards over time. Related forms and a detailed rule book will be available on this page soon. Tack makers, prop makers, etc will need to be noted in any submissions for show credit.
All registered models are eligible for the Seunta awards program in which ribbons, trophies, certificates, resin models, and cash (in USD) will be awarded. Awards will be given for annual recognition as well as titles.
Most titles and awards are based on a points system with placings 1-5. Additional points may be given if the class consists of 10+ entries. Apprentice titles are given to younger model owners by participation.
A digital photo show is in the works. This will will a creative event where photoshop may be used to create an image as real as possible... or unreal. Perhaps different categories. The model horse must be untouched, however. With the event open to registered models there will already be photos on file of the model.
