This contest encompasses points earned at the two ARAB Fun Shows, as well as points earned at the Association of Northwest Arkansas Riding Club's shows (ANWARC) in 2014.

To be eligible, exhibitors must hold a current membership in the ARAB Club before points will count.  They must compete in at least one of the ARAB Fun Shows.  And they must complete the work requirement for ANWARC. 

Congratulations to this year's winners!
