Northern Illinois Hunter/Jumper Association (NIHJA)

Riders, while reviewing the following show score results and point values, please be aware of the following rules:

- All ties for Champion and Reserve are broken by identifing the horse/rider having the most points over fences when applicable. In the case of a tie of over fences points, both horses/riders are awarded the extra ribbon.
- The half point rule is applied to all divisions except for: Short Stirrup Equitation and Long Stirrup Equitation
- The half point rule states that Champion and Reserve places are only awarded to the two top riders/horses in a division having acquired at least 1/2 point over fences. This means you must place in one of the top four (4) places in the over fence classes to be eligible for either the champion or reserve award.
- In order to be eligible for Champion and Reserve award, the rider/horse MUST be entered in the entire division. NOTE: it is not necessary to ride in each class.
- In order for points from a class to count for a year-end award (and for Champion and Reserve points at that show), 3 riders must complete the course. For Medal classes, 4 riders must complete the course.
- Points associated with Champion and Reserve (20 and 12 respectfully) are not used nor applied to the year end total for any of the equitation divisions.

If you have any points concerns, e-mail the Points Secretary.

About The Points
Points are recorded to determine the year-end placings. Points will only be recorded if the horse or rider, respectively, is a member of the association. After a horse show, the points secretary does not receive the points and memberships right away. Remember, patience is a virtue!
Champ Points
Championships yield extra points with the exception of Equitation divisions. Equitation championship points will not be awarded even if ribbons are awarded at the show. The only exception to this rule is Short and Long Sturrip.
