Procedures for entering awards:
All awards (national, state, promotional group) are nominated for by using the Awards nomination form. The nomination form is sent to the appropriate addresses as specified on the form.
ALL awards require a Points Book to be used for the collection of points; these are available by using the Order Form or by including it on the awards nomination form.
Annual awards run from August 1st to July 31st each calendar year. Eligibility to show and participate in our annual awards is available to you as a member for the price of your annual membership fee plus the initial one-off registration fees for your horse.
Branch and Promotion Group Awards:
Each branch of Dilutes Australia Ltd runs and administers their own branch level awards.
The Head Office provides Awards in Victoria and administers them. These include our Diamond, Sapphire, Amber & Prism awards.
Promotion Group Awards are administered by the Promotion Groups.
The owners of all registered dilutes, ancillaries and broken coloured dilutes must be current financial members of the Company.
Should an owner cease to be a financial member, the registration of all horses registered in his or her name will be suspended until such time as said owner rejoins the association, at which time the registration of all horses registered in his or her name will be reinstated.
If by some chance a horse is shown during the period of an owner being unfinancial, those points MAY NEVER BE COUNTED, even when the owner becomes financial.
