Crystal Crown Awards Eligibility (based on 3 participating clubs):

  • Riders must compete on the same horse/mule for the appropriate number of rides to be eligible for year-end awards. If a rider qualifies on two different horses/mules, only the highest scoring pair will be eligible.

  • Overall Top 20; must compete in all of the rides

  • Seniors Top 2 (ages 65  & over); must compete in 2 of 3 rides

  • Juniors Top 2 (ages 13-17); must compete in 2 of 3 rides

  • Youth Top 2 (ages 12 & under); must compete in 2 of 3 rides

  • Novice Rider (competed in 3 or fewer JPRs as of 4/1/2020); must compete in 2 of 3 rides

    • If Seniors, Juniors, Youths, and Novices wish to compete in Overall Top 20, they must compete in all of the rides.

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

    • When determining Novice eligibility, the rider must have competed in 3 JPRs or less as of the first Crystal Crown ride they participate in.  For purposes here, JPRs are not limited to the Crystal Crown JPRs, but other similar events as well. 


Year-End Scoring/Final Rider Placement:

  • The Final Year-End Score will be made up of two parts: ride score and participation points. The ride score will consist of the top/highest 3 ride scores (2 scores when determining Senior, Junior, Youth, and Novice Division winners) for each horse/mule and rider combination. The participation points part will consist of an additional 5 points for each ride the horse/mule and rider participated in.

  • Placing will be based on top scores from the required number of rides for each division plus the additional participation points.

  • If a horse/mule and rider combination participates in more than the required number of rides, only the highest scores from the required number of rides will be used for the series results. (For example, 2 rides are required, and 3 rides are participated in, only the the top 2 scores will be counted or, another way, the lowest score is dropped.)

Year-End Scoring/Final Rider Placement - Continued:

  • For each ride participated in, the horse/mule and rider team will be awarded an additional 5 participation points. These points will be added to the post-season cumulative score verses the final score for each JPR. This equates to the participant having the ability to earn an additional 15 points for year-end results if he/she attends all three (3) rides and rides the same horse/mule.

    • To be considered as having participated a ride, the participant ​must register, pay fees, show up with their  horse/mule, and attempt at least one obstacle.

  • Ties will be resolved by determining who has the most 10's, and then who has the most 9s, etc. These will be taken from the rides used in determining the ride score. Dropped scores will not be included in the tie-breaking counts.​
