All tests will be run under EA rules:

Horse and rider combinations receive series points for each score obtained at their nominated level. Final scores will be calculated using the top 3 scores only.


< 54%            = 1 pt

54 – 56%       = 2pts

56 – 58%       = 3pts

58 – 60%       = 4pts

60 - 62%        = 5pts

62 - 64%        = 6pts

64 - 66%        = 7pts

66 - 68%        = 8pts

68 - 70%        = 9pts

>70%             = 10pts

In the event of a point draw, winners will be calculated by using the highest aggregate percentage of your top 3 scores. The Organising Committee reserves the right to determine that if, due to unforeseen circumstances any of the competition dates included in the series are cancelled; results will be decided from the remaining competition(s).

The more competitions you attend, the better-placed you will be!
