Welcome to the Florida Morgan Horse Association
Our FMHA members have been busy showing their horses and having a great time! Posted below are the mid-year point standings up to and including the Summer Fun Show. Good luck finishing out your year heading down the home stretch! If you have any questions regarding your points, please contact our High Point Secretary, Becca Watters.
We do need the Dressage and Exceptional Riders to send in their placings from their shows, as we do not have those show results available to us. So please send to Becca as soon as possible.
REMINDER: In order to qualify for a year end award, you must show in at least TWO SHOWS in your division. If you have an asterisk (*) next to your name, you have only exhibited at ONE show and require a second to qualify for high point.

Once again, Citrus Cup Regional is inviting exhibitors to bring their unused hotel soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions, etc. to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville. Families that bring a child for medical help do not have extra funds and these small donations make a big impact on them.
Look for a collection box near the photographer’s table!
