The Haflinger Championship Challenge was developed to recognize superior achievement in the Haflinger halter and performance show ring. Participation is easy. No forms to fill out! Just sign up for the qualifying classes at any or all of the qualifying shows. The more shows you attend, the greater chance you have at earning points. Points earned throughout the current calendar year will be automatically tallied and added to the HCC records. Year-end awards will be presented in October at the AHR Fall Sale.
