The purpose of this award is to encourage fun, sportsmanship, teamwork and participation in equestrian competitive distance events. There will be separate team competitions for:
Competitive Trail Riding/Driving
Distance Only(Endurance Limited Distance and Competitive Trail Riding/Driving Mileage Only).
Each team will have up to four members. A rider may only compete on one team per division but may compete in all 3 divisions on the same or different teams.
All team members must be current SEDRA members for their points to count.
This form must be received by the SEDRA Awards Secretary or a designate BEFORE any points will accumulate.
Each team form registered with the SEDRA Awards Sec. is considered complete. If less than 4 members were submitted on the original form, any points from added members will start accruing only after an additional form to include the fourth member is submitted and received. If a team member must be replaced, points from that member will be removed, and points for the new member will only accrue from the time a new form is submitted and received.
Team names are required.
No penalties are incurred by not entering or completing a ride.
Total team points will be tallied at the end of the year.
Only rides/drives that count toward SEDRA year-end high point will count towards team totals. (Must be SEDRA sanctioned, open rides not requiring qualification.)
Only Endurance rides of 50 miles or more will count towards the Endurance team division, using the same point system used for year-end awards.
Competitive Rides and Drives completed for points will count towards the Competitive Trail Riding/Driving team division, using the same point system used for year-end awards.
Competitive Rides and Drives completed for mileage only and Endurance Limited Distance (less than 50 miles) successfully completed per current SEDRA rules will count towards the Distance Only Division, calculated at 1 point per mile, regardless of placing.
The ride/drive must be successfully completed for points to count.
The points will accumulate on the rider.
At least 3 teams per division must register, or that division will be cancelled.
The number of award placings will be determined by the number of entries.
