2020 HOY Rule Waiver


At the August 4 NCDCTA Board meeting it was decided to amend the following rule for the 2020 competition year due to the reduced number of competitions.


Current Rule:

To qualify for HOY awards in a dressage division, a minimum of 14 points must be earned (FEI and MFS exempt from this requirent). To win a division (at all dressage levels), a minimum of 25 points must be earned. Members leading a dressage division with less than 25 points will receive an honorable mention.


Rule Waiver & Amendment

  1. Minimum points are waived to both win and place in a dressage division.

  2. A competitor must have earned points from at least two competitions in the award division.

  3. This rule change is effective for the 2020 competition year only.

HOY Gala Cancelled

Due to the continued NCDHHS restrictions on the number of people allowed at indoor gatherings the board has regretfully reached the decision that holding the 2020 NCDCTA HOY Gala, in person, will not be feasible this year. The board waited to make this decision until now, with the hopes that holding the Gala would be possible, but given the current circumstances we feel that it is no longer a viable option to pursue. 


The board recognizes that many members were able to show this year and were looking forward to the opportunity to gather together and celebrate their achievements and will be disappointed with the cancelation of the HOY Gala this year. With this in mind the board voted on the following changes to the 2020 HOY Awards: 

  • Extending all the HOY division placings from 6th place to 8th place.

  • Recognizing all members that earned HOY points during the unprecedented circumstances of 2020.

  • Developing printed and online opportunities to celebrate the achievements of members who were able to earn HOY points.

  • Providing multiple opportunities to allow for prize pickups after placings are final.


The unusual circumstances of 2020 have upended many normal traditions and the NCDCTA Board Members are looking forward to once again celebrating together in January 2022.
