RULES FOR 2021:
The Show Season is Nov. 15, 2020, through Nov. 14, 2021.
To qualify for a Year End High Score Award, Horse-Rider combinations must have at least 3 scores, from 3 different judges, from 3 different show dates. The MEDIAN of these 3 scores will be used to rank the Horse-Rider combinations at each level. A Prerequisite of 1 score of 55% or higher from the highest test of the level must be obtained.
The exception will be for FEI riders, who will need 2 scores from 2 different judges at 2 different shows. The AVERAGE of the scores will be used to rank Horse-Rider combinations.
The Starter Rider Walk-Trot Junior and Starter Rider Walk-Trot-Canter Junior divisions will be divided into Juniors 12 and under in age; and those juniors 13 years of age and older.
For scores to count towards ECRDA Year End Awards, riders must be ECRDA members in good standing at the time of showing
