If there are 3 (or more) Juniors and 3 (or more) Seniors, then the division will be divided into Junior and Senior divisions for the rider awards. Senior is 18 years and older from the beginning of the calendar year.
Points are automatically tabulated. Points Chairman will obtain the results from all qualified Area V events and schooling shows and determine the awards. Standings periodically will be updated online. Please contact the Points Chairman if an error is detected.
To win a division rider award, a rider must be a member of the CTEA and have points from a minimum of two shows in that division. For a horse to win a division award, the rider and owner of the horse must be a CTEA member and the horse must have accrued points from a minimum of two shows in that division.
Professional riders may only earn Training or Preliminary awards as rider. But, a horse at any level may be ridden by a professional for horse awards, providing the professional is a member of CTEA. A professional is anyone who earns $500 or more per year (or the equivalent) riding and/or instructing.
