Haven't spotted a thread on this...Is anyone going to this event on Sat 18 June? Sounds like an awesome competition Details here: Global Entries Online - Friends of the SEC Eventing - Horseland Young Event Horse State Championships Format & Scoring The winner is that with the highest overall marks from 5 sections. Examples of the score sheets to be used are attached. Section 1: Dressage (30 marks)(plus 10 marks given by the dressage judge towards section 5) Section 2: Showjumping (20 marks) (plus 10 marks given by jumping judge towards section 5) Open age and eventing grand prix competitors will incur penalties for refusals and rails. Section 3: Cross Country (25 marks) (plus 10 marks given by jumping judge towards section 5) Open age and eventing grand prix competitors will incur penalties for refusal and excessive time taken. Section 4: Conformation & Type (15 marks) Horses are assessed in hand by the conformation judge. Their build and type should enable them to withstand the demands of the sport in terms of soundness, speed and stamina. Section 5: Suitability, Trainability, Ride-ability & Potential (10 marks)(average of score given by each of the 1st 3 section?s judges) They have classes for 4-5 and 6-7 year olds as well as open age classes (for the not so young event horse!) and a Grand Prix. I've entered in the "not so young" 80 cm class. Sounds great and it'll be interesting to see the score sheets and comments at the end. Not sure what the go is on equipment as it says the rider has to be presented for dressage for the whole lot and basically choose 1 set of tack and go with it for all sections! Hopefully that means I don't have to wear my body protector for the dressage as I'll look a bit dumbo but not going XC without it!
