All established horse shows having fulfilled their CHJA obligations and having been found in good standing will have seniority for those same dates for the upcoming year. Shows that have more than five negative evaluations will be investigated by the Show Standards Committee. Findings of the investigation will be submitted to the Board which will determine if the show can retain seniority. In order to preserve seniority, show date applications must be submitted and postmarked by November 1 of each year for the following year’s show. Proper approval fee must be included. Any established show failing to submit its application and fee by November 1 or changing its CHJA Rating will lose seniority for those dates. Assignment of dates which open as a result of loss of seniority will be made according to policy established by the Board.
