Horse Showing

Novice Performance halter

I would like to see a way for Novice competitiors to qualify their horses for Performance Halter. This class is offered in a Novice division but there is no way that one showing in the Novice division could qualify for it. As a competitior, I would have to show in Am or Open to earn an ROM which defeats the purpose of offering Novice classes. I understand the points aren't recorded on the horse's record in Novice but perhaps a certificiate should be awarded instead of an actual ROM. Thereby allowing performance horses of all levels to compete in these respective classes.
