FOSH is the only international organization dedicated to the promotion of the sound-gaited horse emotionally, mentally, and physically.
A. A sanctioning fee of $25 is required for all shows. However, it would be truly appreciated if you choose to give an additional donation to further assist FOSH in our mission to promote and protect gaited horses. Please remember that FOSH is now a 501(c)(3) corporation, and any contributions made are tax-deductible.
B. If FOSH sanctions your show and you would like us to set up a link from our webpage for your show, please provide the link information on the Sanctioning Application form found in Section III of this guide.
