FCEA will have the following awards for horse and rider combinations competing in the current year. The rider MUST be an FCEA member in good standing as of October 1 of the competition year. Awards will be compiled by an appointee of the Board of Directors known as the Points Manager (PM) and awarded at the Annual Meeting the following year. The competition year for schooling shows runs from April 1 to November 30.
All members must volunteer four (4) hours at any club event during the current fiscal year to be eligible for ANY year end award. In case of a tie, Volunteer hours will be the tie breaker for First Place.
***Riders are responsible for submitting their scores for any non FCEA shows. To submit scores, take a picture or photo copy of the completed front and back of the test, and send to the Point Manager. Scores may be submitted at anytime during the year. All scores must be submitted by November 30 of the competition year. For each level being considered, the top 5 scores earned on different dates will be used to calculate points. If fewer than five shows are attended/submitted, then the points submitted will be used for placings.
For all awards, points are based on the horse and rider combination. The team may earn points in two consecutive levels. If the next higher level is attempted, the scores earned at the lowest level will be disqualified.
