NASS' Radautzer Award
In order to celebrate the outstanding achievements of horses with Shagya-Arabian blood, the North American Shagya-Arabian Society (NASS) has created the "Radautzer Award" for NASS-registered horses competing in AERC rides.
The first inaugural award was given in 2011, coinciding with NASS’ 25th Anniversary.
Named after the horses from the famous Austrian military stud farm of Radautz (located in present-day Romania) a horse with exceptional courage and stamina in Europe received the highest praise if described as “tough as a Radautzer”.
Recognition will be given annually to the horse who:
Achieves the highest number of points within that competition year according to the scoring system
Eligible horses must be registered with NASS
The owner of record must be a NASS member in good standing at the time the nomination form is submitted
You may send in all of the horse’s endurance information at one time (following their last ride) or in parts as the horse completes rides.
NASS will confirm your horse’s endurance results with AERC’s official ride results. If your submitted information is not consistent with AERC information we will contact you to resolve the inconsistency.
NASS will also check with AERC to identify competing horses with Shagya-Arabian blood who could be eligible for this award, and use AERC results information.
Since AERC records may not accurately identify all horses with Shagya-Arabian blood as "Shagyas", submitting this nomination to NASS will ensure your horse will be considered for the Radautzer Award.
Note: Make sure your NASS Membership is current and your horse(s) is/are registered with NASS.

Congratulations to all the NASS members & horses who competed in 2019 AERC rides!
