**** ABHA NEWSLETTER ****, Mon 29th Mar, 2021

Dear ABHA Members, Affiliates, Volunteers and Lovers of Barrel racing,

The ABHA has started to ramp up over the last few months, with a feeling of positivity starting to spread across Australia as we wind back Covid-19 restrictions. We have finished our 2020 state championship events, which were very successful and well received across all states.

The 2021 Equitana Qualifiers are in full swing and already have some big name competitors qualifiered.

We are excited to announce the addition of Nicole McDonald as the acting secretary/treasurer to the ABHA. We would like to thank Suzie Dicks for all her voluntary time as temporary secretary/treasurer and look forward to having Suzie back in the directors seat. 

The ABHA is wishing everyone a safe and Happy Easter as we all get ready for our Easter weekend events - be sure to checkout our calendar for an event near you. 

Until next Time  

Cathy Reean 

ABHA President

2021 Classic Incentive, Thu 31st Dec, 2020

The ABHA for over 9 years has sponsored a buckle to the value of $250 to all affiliates who run a Classic event with a posted prize money of $1000 or more.

In 2020 the ABHA also provided a Cash incentive of $500 to those affiliates who ran $1000 Classic Event, and a $250 Cash incentive to those who ran a Classic Event with $500 Posted Prize Money. This incentive was very well received throughout the year.

For the past few months the ABHA Board has been discussing ideas around incentives.

We are pleased to announce that as of the 1st of January 2021 the ABHA will now be offering a $500 cash bonus to Affiliates that run a $1000 Classic event.

The ABHA will no longer be sponsoring a buckle for these events or the $250 cash incentive for $500 Classic’s.

We encourage all affiliates to still support Ride Tuff if you wish to award buckles, as Ride Tuff is a long time sponsor of the ABHA.

This incentive will be in place until 31/12/2021 and will be reviewed prior to the 1/01/2022.

Conditions :

Posted Prize Money must be a minimum of $1000

Each Affiliate can only receive the incentive twice per calendar year.

Affiliates can use the $500 cash incentive at their discretion in the running of their event.
