CSHA Rules are followed as a guideline with EXCEPTIONS:

High Point prizes will be awarded in all categories.  The type of prize awarded depends on Division sponsorship and number of entries.  (Note: We are ALWAYS in need of High Point Sponsors!)

Points are awarded as follows:

One point per horse in the class with a maximum of 5 points to 1st place.

               5 points                1st place, 5+ horses in the class

               4 points                2nd place, 5+ horses in the class

               3 points                3rd place, 5+ horses in the class

               2 points                4th place, 5+ horses in the class

               1 point                 5th place, 5+ horses in the class

Points will be awarded in the same manner if there are fewer horses in the class. (i.e. 2nd place out of 4 horses will receive 3 points, etc.)  1 horse in the class, 1 point will be awarded (if horse/rider does not DQ during class).  Points awarded to the Exhibitor, not Exhibitor/Horse; with the exception of Ranch Horse Versatility classes where points are awarded to one horse/rider combination.

Youth Riders are eligible to compete in Youth classes and Open classes.  However, only the highest points earned will be used in High Point configuration.  Example: a youth competes in a Youth class and wins 1st place out of 3 entries (3 points); then competes in the Open version of that same class and places 2nd out of 5 entries (4 points).  The Open points would count toward the Youth High Point Award, not the points earned in the Youth class.

Novice exhibitors may compete in Novice and Open classes with only one set of points counted towards High Point Awards.  In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by whoever has the greater number of class wins.  In the event a Novice award is sponsored, only Novice classes will count towards that award.

Definitions:
Novice rider/horse has not won more than 3 (three) Blue Ribbons in that event.  Green Horse:  1st and 2nd year showing.

Exhibitor must participate in at least 2 (two) shows to qualify for a High Point Award.

High Point winners will be determined at the conclusion of the Series.
