*If a rider qualifies as Novice in the first ride they participate in, then they are considered Novice for the remaining rides.

 

*Age is determined as of the first JPR the rider participates in, then the rider is considered that age for the remaining rides.

 

  • A rider must compete on the same horse/mule for 3 of 4 rides to be eligible for year-end awards.

  • Once the rider meets the eligibility requirements as stated above, the lowest ride score will be dropped.

  • For each ride in which a participant signs up, pays, and rides, said rider/horse team will awarded an additional 5 points.  To have considered as having ridden the ride, the participant must attempt at least one obstacle at the ride.  Said points will be added to the post-season cumulative score versus the final score for each JPR.  This equates to the rider having the ability to earn an additional 20 year-end points if she/he attends all four (4) rides and rides the same horse. 

  • Ties will be resolved by determining who has the most 10's, and then who has the most 9's, etc.
