In order to qualify for MSEA year-end awards, you must:
1) Join a local chapter. Your membership to a chapter automatically makes you an MSEA member. The horse's rider and owner must be members. Membership dues must be received by the MSEA chapter of your choice by September 1st for the current year's points to count for awards.
2) Register your horse with MSEA.Registration for a horse that is not currently registered with MSEA requires a horse registration form with $35.00 for life or $15.00 for an annual registration per horse sent to the MSEA horse registration chair (see below) in order to be eligible for year-end awards. Horse registrations must be received by the MSEA horse registration chair by September 1st for the current year's points to count for awards.
3) Compete in Area IX shows. Most awards require a minimum of 3 qualifying scores (meaning you completed all 3 phases).
The information on current horses registered is on the MSEA website. You need to contact Dan Michaels, MSEA Treasurer, to find out whether or not the owner and rider are MSEA members. The MSEA awards chair will use this information, along with other data, to determine year-end points.
You may have lots of questions (How do I contact an MSEA chapter? How do I register my horse? etc.) and many can be answered by going to the MSEA website at or call Leslie at 303.688.4147 or email

MSEA is Alive and Well!

A little history on MSEA. MSEA was established in the mid-1970ís as an organization to facilitate communication between organizations that either were or wanted to organize and run a horse trials. These organizations became chapters of MSEA. MSEA encompasses a huge area of the Rocky Mountain region from Southeast Idaho to South Dakota and from Southeastern Montana to the New Mexico border. It also includes the Wasatch Range in Utah.
