Club Points System – Qualification:
Members are reminded that in order to qualify for the Club Points System, you need to have:
- Attended at least 3 shows.
- Horse/Pony & Rider/Handler combination must have been the same for each of the qualifying shows. The combination presented in the ring must have been the same as that stated on the entry form. Any change in the combination will have meant that a new set of points was created. Please don’t try and “con” the system as you will eventually get caught out!!
- If you have changed the horse/pony name (eg from show to stable name) please inform the points secretary – the committee will endeavor to rectify all points issues, but the onus is on the competitor.
Members are awarded points in all classes as follows:
1st = 10
2nd = 8
3rd = 7
4th = 6.
3 attendance points are awarded to members who present in the ring and are not placed.
In order to be eligible for points, members need to enter the same class on three separate occasions, over the course of a show season.
To accumulate points competitors need to enter the same horse / pony and rider combination. For Inhand classes the handler must be the same consistent member. For all classes in Ring 3 the horse / pony must be consistent to accumulate points.
Point winners 1st – 4th in each class will receive special prizes at our presentation evening. 1ST PRIZE WINNERS ALSO RECIEVE A PERPETUAL TROPHY. You must attend the presentation evening to collect your prize or it will be forfeited.
