The Lifetime Superior Achievement Program (LSAP) is a versatility program for NWHA that has something for everyone who shows. Championships can be earned in English Pleasure, Western Pleasure, Versatility, and/or Model. Points accumulate from year to year, with the exception of the Annual Register of Merit.  The pinnacle of the versatility horse is the achievement of The Order of The Equinus.  Horses can achieve this top award when achieving "Champion" status in Model, Versatility and English or Western Pleasure.  It may be a long road, but it is well worth the travel!
