Show Time!

Probably because THIS beautiful thing came in the mail this week, I planned a show schedule:

Fourth place year end award - ESDCTA
This year we are dipping our toes into the rated show waters.  I picked about one show per month from March through October, with the goal of shooting for qualifying for a couple of year end awards and/or championships.  I tried to pick shows that have points that will go toward at least two of these at a time, so we can enjoy ourselves this summer too.

No pressure, as always, depending on how things go we may scrap the idea of year end or championships altogether.  I may decide that I need two years at first level and not attempt First-3 at all this year.  But, if things go great, and I'm trying to be positive and assume that they will, here is our plan:

            Requirements for ESDCTA Year End:
·         Five (5) scores from first level as follows:
          Three (3) scores from the highest test of the level from three (3) different judges
          Two (2) additional scores from the same level
          Scores must be from a minimum of four (4) different judges.
          Scores must be from a minimum of three (3) different shows.
          Eight (8) hours of volunteer time per award.

Shows Planned:
·         March 28 (First-1 only)
o   Horse Park of NJ
o   Heidi Lemack-Beck
·         April 19 
o   Horse Park of NJ
o   Jane Cory
·         May 9

·         September 12
o   Horse Park of NJ (Championship)

·         October 11/12
o   Horse Park of NJ (Garden State Classic)
o   TBA

            Requirements for ECRDA Year End:
·         Four (4) scores from first level as follows:
·         Three scores from three different judges from three different show dates.
·         One score must be the highest score from the highest test of the level and must be a minimum of 55%.
·         In addition, one more score at or above 55% must be earned at the highest test of the level; this score is not included in the computation of the median.
·         The MEDIAN of these three scores will be used to rank the horse-rider combinations at each level.

·         March 28 (First-1 only)
o   Horse Park of NJ
o   Heidi Lemack-Beck
