NAN Qualifying Shows

NAN stands for North American Nationals. It is a national show held every year that allow showers to compete against the toughest competition possible.

To get to NAN, each horse a shower enters must earn a NAN card. NAN cards are earned by placing first or second in a class. NAN cards are only available at NAN qualifying shows, which must be approved by NAMHSA (North American Model Horse Showers’ Association,) these shows’ governing body.

When you’re just starting out, NAN cards shouldn’t be a high priority for you. I wouldn’t recommend showing at NAN without at least two years of regular showing under your belt.
