MFTHBA Medal Program

Recognizing the accomplishments of the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse and the Missouri Fox Trotting Pony.

The MFTHBA Medal Program provides an opportunity to recognize the achievements of MFTHBA and MFTPR registered horses.

 The program will:

  • Recognize horse accomplishments in a wide variety of activities
  • Provide future owners documentation of the horse’s experience increasing the potential value of the horse


How does it work?

Horses and ponies are nominated to the Medal Program.  The nomination fee is a lifetime nomination.  Once nominated, a horse or pony can submit information on their accomplishments to the MFTHBA.  This information will become part of the horse or pony’s permanent record.  Once the horse or pony reaches the established point level, they will be awarded a medal.  Owners should note that to receive points the owner of record for the horse or pony must be a current member of the MFTHBA.  Points earned while the owner is not a member will not be recorded.
