The Incentive Awards have now been renamed the Case Memorial Competition Fund. This program supports cash awards given to participants in recognized sport events (USDF, USEA, AERC, to name a few). Checks are handed out at the national organization's yearly Conferences, or sent in the mail.
The 2020 pot is slightly different: The ATAA is putting in $2000 and each horse entered into the Incentive Awards will pay $25 to compete. The $2000 and all the horse fees will make up this year's pot to share. So, the more horses that compete and take part in this, the bigger the pot!
Our Case Memorial Competition Fund pot gets bigger every year ! Make sure you get some of it! 2015 pot $350 2016 pot $1000 2017 pot $2000 2018 pot $3000 2019 pot $5000 2020 pot $2000 + ????
To participate for the Case Memorial Competition FundAwards:
1) Competitor must be a (individual, ranch, 10-year or life) member in good standing with the ATAA by March 31 of the competition year (2020).Friends membership are not eligible for Incentive Awards. 2) Competing horse must be registered (not pending) with the ATAA either as a pure or part bred. 3) Participants must send in two or more pictures from the event (must be 375kb or bigger) (if you placed please send a picture with your ribbon and/or prize), make sure you mention the horse's ATAA registration number. 4) Participants must sign a release that the ATAA may post photos and results to our website and use photos in promotions for the ATAA 5) Email the link to the results page for the recognized event you participated in for proof. 6) Just sending photos in for the newsletter and/or website is NOT enough (but we appreciate it)
At the end of the year , the ATAA will tally up all the participants and send you a check in February. The more you compete the larger your share of the "jackpot" will be. The amount you receive will be divided out of the set amount in the awards fund and therefore will depend on how many people participate in the incentive program. The incentive program does not depend on you placing or earning points, it is completely about competing in recognized events in all disciplines and sending in the above listed information to the association.
