Awards

Each Dressage Class and each Obstacle Class will be awarded with first through sixth place ribbons.

There will be Championship and Reserve Championship Awards for each division with a minimum of 2 riders. Riders must compete in the same level of dressage and obstacles to be eligible. .

There will be 2 Professional/Open Championship Awards offered. One is for the highest number of points for a horse/professional rider combination. A second award is for the highest overall number of points for a professional, regardless of number of horses shown. For ease of scheduling, professionals will ride during classes based on their test level, but scored separately from the class.

 

Points:

For ease of scoring, points maybe awarded as a set point value for each score, instead of placings, in increments of 5 points, using the 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 point system. Meaning scores of:

75% and up = 7 points             60%-64.99%=3 points

70%-74.99% = 5 points           55%-59.99%=2 points

65% – 69.99% = 4 points         54% & below=1 point
