2017 Calendar

  The Calendar page has been updated for the 2017 show season.

Points

  FINAL points are posted as of November 30th, 2016. Please check your points because they will become FINAL on December 31st, 2016! Changes will NOT be made after that date. A series of asterisks (****) next to a name indicates that the exhibitor has not competed in two shows in that division for final 2016 points, as required to receive a year end award. If you own a horse that is in contention for a year end award but some one else has been riding him/her, please email Jessica Roberts so that BOTH of you can be recognized at the banquet. If any of the information listed is incorrect or missing, or if you have any questions about the final point standings, please send an email to the Points Secretary.

- All RIHA Medals will require three riders to complete the course for the class to fill and count. (Same as before.)
- Riders may continue to compete in medal class even after qualified. (Same as before.)
- Points awarded as follows: 1st - 10 points; 2nd - 6 points, 3rd - 4 points, 4th - 2 points.
- There will be no more stand-by list.
