BCHSA Points System
In order to receive a Year-End Award, a Horse/Pony in a Hunter or Pleasure Division and a Rider in an Equitation Division must have competed at a minimum of three (3) shows in that division and accrue at least twenty (20) points, except for the BCHSA Scholarship Hack where the only requirement is a minimum of three (3) shows.
Junior Horse & Pony Medals points are combined, but we cannot do it on our program. Please refer to the print outs at the shows for the accurate count.
Please note: If there is a zero listed for points awarded for one person or horse in a class where others were awarded points, it means that the person or horse listed as receiving
0 points for a ribbon is not a member.
|1st||10 Points ||15 Points
|2nd||6 Points ||11 Points
|3rd||4 Points ||9 Points
|4th||2 Points ||7 Points
|5th||1 Point ||6 Points
|6th||1/2 Point ||5 Points
Blue Merit = 25 points
Red Merit = 15 points
Mini Short Stirrup & Beginner Rider Equitation
Blue Merit = 35 points
Red Merit = 25 points
Short & Long Stirrup
Blue Merit = 45 points (qualifies rider to compete in the Short & Long Stirrup Merit Medal Finals)
Red Merit = 35 points
All riders receiving less than the Red Merit number of points will earn a participation award at the year end banquet of champions.
(Medal classes do not have an increment change based on the number of entries)
In Hunter Divisions in order for full points to count toward Annual High Point Awards for Hunter divisions, each division must have at least three (3) exhibitors complete the first class of the division. If only two (2) exhibitors complete the first class, only half points will be awarded for that division class.
Classic Point System:
The points earned in these classics will be added to the horses’ year end totals in their respective divisions. In addition to being used to boost the division year end totals, the classic points themselves will also be used to determine the high point horse in each of the three classics.
1st Place = 20 points
2nd Place = 16 points
3rd Place = 14 points
4th Place = 12 points
5th Place = 10 points
6th Place = 8 points
7th Place = 6 points
8th Place = 5 points
BCHSA MEDALS - 12 points required to qualify
Junior & Pony Medal points can be combined, but the program will not reflect this. If you accumulate points in both sections, your overall total will count towards qualification.
