There are 5 divisions:
Pee Wee (9 yrs. and under or on a lead line)
Youth (10 to 13 yrs.)
Junior (14 to 17 yrs.)
Senior (18 yrs. & older)
Top of the Hill (40+ yrs.)
There are 3 events for Pee Wee and 5 events for the rest of the divisions.
Events are timed, based on elimination, or both. Time penalties are added if a rider fails to complete part of an event or disqualification if rider is off course.
For Youth, Jr., Sr. and Top of Hill ribbons and points are awarded for the top 6 placings in each event. PeeWee riders all get either ribbons or treats but do not accumulate points.
Year end trophies for Champion and Reserve are awarded for riders with the most points in each division.
Helmets are recommended for everyone!
New York State Law now requires that all riders under the age of 18 MUST
wear a helmet!
PLEASE! Horses may spook!
