  • A horse/rider team may qualify at more than one level and all qualified horse/rider teams are permitted to compete in the Championships in consecutive qualified levels.

For USDF Intro, Tests A & B; for USEF levels, tests 2 & 3 of the level; FEI will ride one championship test on one day and these tests will be double judged. Competitors in Grand Prix can choose between the two Grand Prix tests.

  • Championship Scoring: In divisions that require two tests, the two Championship classes must be entered and a score obtained in order to qualify for an award. Winners at each level and division will be determined by averaging the percentage scores for the two rides. In case of a tie, the winner is determined by the highest scoring ride on the second day.
