  • Green classes will NOT count toward any Year End All Arounds
  • Points will run up to 9 entries
  • (Example: 12 entries in class= 1st place get 9 points, 2nd place gets 8 points....Example: 5 entries in class, 1st place gets 5 points, 2nd place gets 4 points, etc)
  • Sanctioned Shows: MS, LA, and AL show points will count toward NWFQHA Year End Highpoints. However, these are NOT required shows to run for Year End. An exhibitor must show two NWFQHA shows.
