Guidelines

  1. All NCDCTA HOY points must be earned at NCDCTA recognized shows and events, with two exceptions: A. Eventers reporting out-of-state results for USEA / USEF / FEI recognized events, and B. Dressage competitors reporting out-of-state championships (Regional Championships, National Championship and BLM Champion Competition). Form must be submitted within 7 days of competition. For shows after November 1 results must be submitted within 3 days of competition.

  2. First place HOY winners are ineligible to win the same division for the following three consecutive years. Exceptions: FEI Grand Prix Dressage, Musical Freestyle Dressage, Jr/YR FEI and Preliminary and above eventing, and if horse ownership / lease has changed.

  3. Both rider and owner/lessee must be current NCDCTA members, and horse must be registered at the time the points are earned (within the HOY season for the show). Points accrue in divisions determined by rider's status. Adult Amateurs and Junior/Young Riders must avow their status on the NCDCTA membership application. If no status is stated, application is considered incomplete. A change in status must be sent directly to the NCDCTA membership secretary in writing, and points will accrue in the new division from that date forward. If a Status Correction is necessary for any reason, all points earned will be placed into the corrected division. Status Corrections must be approved by the HOY committee.

  4. Junior/Young Riders are members who are 21 years of age or younger as of December 1 of the award year. Jr/Yrs must state birthdate on membership application and horse registration.

  5. Points are based on results reported by recognized competitions for the award year December 1 - November 30.

  6. Points will be posted on the website throughout the year, and the top 6 rankings in each division will be publicized. The top 3 in each division will be honored at the annual banquet in January.

  7. Only points from NCDCTA recognized shows will count toward HOY awards with the exception of out of state USDF Regional Championships, USDF National Finals and BLM Championships. Competitors are responsible for reporting results for any out of state Regional Championship, USDF Dressage Finals or BLM Championship within 10 days of the end of the competition.

  8. It is the competitor's responsibility to verify accuracy by checking website throughout the year. Results submission of NCDCTA recognized schooling competitions are the sole responsibility of the show manager. Failure to submit complete results or any infractions of the guidelines may result in recognition denial for current or future competitions. NCDCTA offers no warranties or guarantees as to the quality of competition or suitability of venues at recognized schooling shows, and reserves the right to deny recognition to competitions the executive board deems sub-standard, for policy infractions such as late results, or for any reasons forthwith. Any questions regarding points should be directed to the NCDCTA membership secretary.

  9. Eventing: Horse and rider must complete a USEA or NCDCTA horse trials at the appropriate level within the year to be eligible for a final HOY ranking.

  10. Eventers are responsible for submitting out-of-state results report forms within 10 days of competition.

  1. To qualify for HOY awards in a dressage division, a minimum of 14 points must be earned (FEI and MFS exempt from this requirement). 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.

NCDCTA Dressage HOY points:


For all USDF licensed shows, the number of points will be equal to the final score multiplied by 0.1 (moving the decimal one place to the left). For instance, a 65.432% will earn 6.5432 points.

 

  • For all NCDCTA schooling shows, the number of points will be halved--which can also be calculated by multiplying the final score by 0.05. A 65.432% will earn 3.2716 points.

  • For the NCDCTA championship participants, (for the championship classes only) the number of points will be doubled--or calculated by multiplying the final score by 0.2. A 65.432% will earn 13.0864 points.

  • At Intro through First Levels, a minimum score of 60.000% is necessary to earn points, regardless of placing.

  • At Second through Fourth Levels, a minimum score of 58.000% is necessary to earn points, regardless of placing.

  • At FEI Levels, a minimum score of 55.000% is necessary to earn points, regardless of placing.

  • For Musical Freestyles, a minimum score of 58.000% is necessary to earn points, regardless of placing.

  • Points will not be rounded up or down, but reported unchanged.

  • DOUBLE points will be awarded in the championship classes for the championship participants at the annual NCDCTA Dressage Championships, and in all classes/divisions at the NCDCTA Eventing Championships. Eligibility for both the Dressage and Eventing Championships requires at least one HOY point to be earned by the horse/rider pair in the division(s) they wish to participate in the Championships during the qualifying period of the Championship.
