Did you receive your American Morgan Horse Association membership application in the mail? If you plan on using the registry* or showing at Morgan shows in 2017, note that you need to renew at the Standard or Premium levels.
Renewing at the $40 Associate membership level does not give you reduced registry rates and competition privileges. The Associate membership only gives you voting privileges in AMHA's election, retail discounts, and program participation.
The Standard membership level at $70 gives you: AMHA registry discounts, competition privileges, free online registry access all year, and free enrollment in the Ranch Horse Network™.
The Premium membership level at $125 gives you all of the above plus a one-year subscription to The Morgan Horse magazine, expedited registry processing, and a special free gift.
Don't forget, effective in 2016, AMHA is no longer offering Household/Business memberships. If you are going to take advantage of the reduced registry rates, one person in the household/business account has to become a Standard or Premium individual member to take advantage of the reduced rates. To satisfy the new USEF rule, anyone showing at a USEF competition must have an individual Standard or Premium membership.
If you renew at the Associate level and need to upgrade to either the Standard or Premium level, the fee will be the difference in price plus $5 service fee.
Make sure you receive registry discounts! Make sure you're on the membership list at your first show! Renew at a Standard or Premium membership for 2017! Call AMHA at (802) 985-4944 to renew or upgrade, or go to www.morganhorse.com/membership/join/ to renew online.
*Using the Registry means transferring horses, registering foals, ordering DNA kits, submitting breeding reports, etc.
