CUSTOMIZE YOUR RIDE, HERE’S HOW IT WORKS!
Upon approach of each obstacle, you inform the judge of the Challenge Level that best suits you and your equine, allowing you to best showcase your equine, helping you achieve success. Obstacles are not timed!
- SELECT A CHALLENGE LEVEL at each obstacle.
- RECEIVE A SCORE from the judge. Max 20 points per obstacle; 10 for the equine, 10 for the rider. A plus(+) may be given to equine and/or rider for anything from an exemplary try to an exemplary performance.
- YOUR OBSTACLE SCORE is multiplied by the Challenge Level’s corresponding weighted factor.
- YOUR BRACKET is determined by the sum of the Challenge Levels selected.
|Bracket||Challenge Level||Weighted Factor||Challenge Level Total||Average
|6 obstacles||7 obstacles||8 obstacles||9 obstacles||10 obstacles|
