Equitation Classic Finals

 

Equitation Classic Finals are held twice a year, once during each show season.  The Winter Equitation Classic Finals are held at the last show of the Winter Series in April.  The Summer Finals are held at the Fall Festival show in August.

Riders qualify for this class based on equitation points earned over fences during the current show season. Riders will be scored on their flat and jumping performance, turnout, and their answers to three horse-related questions.  The flat phase will be done without stirrups.  Riders may choose not to remove their stirrups in the flat phase, but the cost is 20 points out of an overall 100 possible points if they never or almost never drop their stirrups, or a 10 point penalty if they have stirrups on their saddle, but don't use them (unless they are crossed over the saddle).  Jumping Phase = 30%, Flat Phase = 30%, Turnout Phase = 25%, and Question Phase = 15%.  Fence height in the jumping phase will vary based on the highest the rider has shown in equitation over fences classes at a Huntermark show this season.  No martingales in flat phase.  Unlike most Medal classes, riders MAY use different horses on the flat and over fences, and horses may be ridden by more than one rider.

Riders can qualify by placing in the top 7 in an equitation over fences class (Short/Long Stirrup Equitation, Equitation A, Equitation B, Equitation C, Equitation D, Equitation E, Junior Equitation, Adult Equitation, Cross Rail Medal, Beginner Medal, Mini Medal, and MIHJA Medal).  The last chance to qualify will be Saturday of the Finals show.  There is NO COST to participate in this class and the top 8 riders win a beautiful sash for their horse.  Braiding and show clothes are recommended since they are part of the score for the turnout phase.  Wash racks are available to all exhibitors.
