NEHC Hunter Seat Medals

 

Please note that the Adult and Junior Hunt Seat Medal qualifying fence heights were changed a few

years ago. We have found that some shows are still using the old specs.

It previously stated for Adult “fences not to exceed 3’; for Juniors “fences not to exceed 3’3”.

 

New Rule Book states:

Adult Fences are to be set at a height of 2’9” to 3’

Junior Fences are to be set at a height of 3’ to 3’3”

NEHC wants to make sure riders don’t qualify below the height they will see at the finals.

William Woods University will be giving scholarship to each of the medals at Octoberfest Horse show.

Saddle Seat, Western and Hunt Seat Pleasure Equitation Medal Classes

These are the changes that were made for pointing these classes.

 

"Once you have won a medal class you are no longer eligible to compete in that seat for the year"

That means you can enter the medal class as many times as you would like to try to win the class to receive a medal. If you have enterered the class and have accumulated 8 points you can still enter the class as many times as you would like until you win the class.

 

"In the Saddle Seat, Western and Hunt Seat Pleasure Equitation Medal Classes"

These classes will be allowed to be held with fewer than three entrants. 1/2 points will be awarded. No medals will be awarded.

1st   4 points   

2nd  3 points
