2020 Point Series Pulls

   SPONSORED BY BROWN EQUINE HOSPITAL

 


This is the 12th year for the LHHPA point series.  This year's point series features 10 pulls located in 7 different states.  The pulls in the series are derived in several different ways.  Several organizations will contact LHHPA about the possibility of getting one of their pulls in the series.  Also, LHHPA contacts several pulling members from different states (those whom generally participate in LHHPA pulls) and these people nominate several pulls in their state.  Lastly, LHHPA and pullers in northern Pennsylvania nominate the Pennsylvania pulls.  After the nominations are in, the members of the association vote on what pulls will be in the series.  Of course, there are more pulls in Pennsylvania than in other state because our association's number one goal is promoting pulling in Pennsylvania.  However, we do hope that the points series will increase the number of teams and spectators throughout all of the states involved.  Due to the increasing popularity of the point series, in the future there may be a small nomination fee.
