Saddle Seat/Western Seat/ Hunt Seat Pleasure Medal Finals

Due to the amount of pleasure shows that have been cancelled and the number of entries we get in these medals there will be no qualifying necessary for the 2020 NEHC Medal Finals in these divisions. We have exhibitors from other states as far as PA involved in these medals and we do not feel there will be enough shows to get these exhibitors qualified. For these finals being a member of NEHC is the requirement to compete at the finals.

New England Equitation Championships Date Change

VENUE CHANGE – We are announcing today (August 30th) due to Covid we are changing venue to Fieldstone Show Park for the NE Championships. Same dates.
We recommend people check our website and social media platforms for details. 

The New England Equitation Championships Committee announces new finals dates and qualification changes. The NEHC medal finals will run September 16-20, 2020 at its traditional location of the Eastern States Exposition in W. Springfield, MA. In addition, for the 2020 season, juniors in their last year who have ever qualified for NEHC finals previously are hereby automatically qualified for NEHC 2020 finals – no points or wins will be required for these competitors to qualify this year. Stay tuned for more 2020 qualification changes for both adults and juniors.

The basic timeline for the week is as follows: Wednesday/Thursday will be the same as 2019 for adult age groups; Friday ALL AGE groups of Open Juniors will show; Saturday morning USHJA 3’3″ Hunter Seat Medal Final – East followed by Challenge of the States; Sunday NEHC junior medal finals.

UPDATE – AUGUST 18, 2020

Due to the 2020 NEHC Championships date change and the limited number of NEHC Medal qualifying classes/horse shows as a result of COVID, the NEEC has modified the 2020 qualifying criteria in the following ways:

 

  1. All junior NEHC members who are juniors in their last year and have qualified for any previous NEHC Championshipsare invited to compete at the 2020 NEHC Championships.
  2. All junior and adult NEHC members who have competed in a 2020 NEHC qualifying class (‘competed’ is defined asthe rider got a ribbon) are invited to compete at the 2020 NEHC Championships.
  3. All junior and adult NEHC members who qualified for the 2019 NEHC Championshipsare invited to compete at the 2020 NEHC Championships.

 

The cutoff date for qualifying by the new criteria is August 31, 2020. The cutoff date for entering is September 1, 2020. Post entries are accepted with $100 post entry fee. Shows after August 31, 2020 will count for 2021

Point Charts

A first Place Medal win qualifies you for the finals. A total of 10 points or a win qualifies you for the finals. Once you are qualified, you are no longer eligible to compete in the qualifying class for that year’s section of Medal Classes.

Violations will forfeit eligibility for finals for that year.

New Medal pointing for 2020: NEHC Junior Hunt Seat Medal
10 Points qualifies as a win.
1st place equals 10 points
2nd place equals 5 points

So 2 second place qualifies you for the finals. Once you have qualified, you are no longer eligible to compete in that seat for that year of Medal qualifying classes.

This will be retroactive back to October 7, 2019.
