All NSSHA Show Exhibitors; Juveniles, Amateurs, & Trainers, will be required to complete & sign an additional  form this year, when applying for your Exhibitor's or Trainer's card.  The additional form is the NSSHA Exhibitor's Code of Ethics/Release of Liability Form.  The form can be downloaded, along with your exhibitor card application, from our website.  The forms will also be available at all shows.  Exhibitor cards will not be issued until the form is completed & signed. 

The NSSHA Board of Directors recently made the difficult decision to place the NSSHA Breeder's Incentive Program on hold, for the time being.  The decision was made, due to the lack of participation in the program.  With sufficient participation and entries, the Program may be reinstated, at a later date.  If you have comments on this program, please feel free to contact the NSSHA office, or a Board Member.
