USA Equestrian Announces Stateline Tack/USAE Pony Finals

The 2003 Stateline Tack/USAE Pony Finals will be held August 5-8, at the Andrews School in Willoughby, OH, and will be managed by Mike Rheinheimer.


To qualify for the Wild Horsefeathers/USAE Regular and Green Hunter Pony, a pony must win a Championship in an “A” rated Regular Hunter Pony section or a Championship or Reserve Championship in an “A” rated Green Hunter Pony section. The pony must be registered with the Federation at the time of the win in order for the Championship or Reserve Championship to count. Sections held after July 1 will count toward next year’s competition. The qualifying period for the Regular Hunter Pony section is July 2, 2002, -

July 1, 2003. The Green Hunter Pony section qualifying period is December 1, 2002, through July 1, 2003.


A rider who accumulates 30 points will receive a silver medal from the Federation and will qualify for the USAE Pony Medal Finals, held in conjunction with the USA Equestrian Pony Competition. Points are awarded as follows: 1st place = 30 pts.; 2nd place = 15 pts.; 3rd place = 10 pts. A rider that has qualified for the Finals can continue to compete in qualifying classes. Riders can qualify for the Medal from July 2, 2002, through July 1, 2003.


Each Zone may take a team of the top three or four pony/rider combinations from their zone to compete in the 2003 Pony Jumper National Championships. The Zone of each pony/rider combination is determined by the rider’s home address as recorded with the USA Equestrian as of June 2 of each year. Qualifying points can be accrued at any USA Equestrian recognized competition. All Pony Jumper divisions which meet the specifications as outlined in the USA Equestrian Rule Book from June 2, 2002 to June 1, 2003, of the current show year will be used to calculate the top four pony/rider combinations in each Zone. Points are tallied from the National standings (see Art. 919.2 for point tabulation chart). Pony/rider combinations can accrue points outside of their Zone.
