Points are awarded to each placing received by an entrant to their class 1st = 7 2nd = 5 3rd = 3 etc etc
If only One horse is entered into any class it will gain points based on its % - based on the ESNZ Dressage NZ points system i.e 68 % or more 7 points, 63 – 66.99% = 5points. PAYMENTS ALLOCATED:
Prize money is paid on a 1:5 ratio for Dressage horses and 1:7 ratio for Show Hunter horses, this is not per class but overall entries for the weekend.
Therefore 1 – 5 entries in the Level 1 classes 1st place is paid out 10 entries plus 1st & 2nd place gets paid out 15plus entries 1st, 2nd & 3rd get paid out 20 entries plus 1st – 4th get paid out ect. IN THE CASE OF A TIE
In case of a tie in points for the weekend accumulators prize money will be split between the parties, if for example there is a 1st place tie and we are paying out to third 1st and 2nd place get added together and then split between the two riders. If there is tie for second and we are only paying out to second the money for 2nd is split between the two riders.
In event of a tie for the overall place as we can’t split the horse cover the rider with the highest average % will win the rug.
