Trophy Points
   

Grading, Distance Awards and Trophies

Grading System

The Grading System in GERs is designed to reward horse fitness and good horsemanship. Horses passing the final vetting shall be awarded a Grade based on the horse’s finishing heart rate which shall be taken over a full 60 seconds. Grading Parameters will apply.

Open and advanced horses competing in novice classes will be awarded distance completion points only.

Distance Awards

Distance gained at SERC rides will be counted for Endurance GB distance awards. However, 60% or more of the total distance must have been achieved in Endurance GB rides in order to be eligible for the distance award. Photocopies of Vet Sheet(s) from the SERC rides must be sent to the Results Co-ordinator immediately after the ride. Vet Sheet(s) received after 24th October in the current competition year will not be counted.

Trophies

Trophy Points gained at SERC rides will be counted for Endurance GB trophies. However, 60% or more of the total points gained for the trophy must have been achieved in Endurance GB rides in order to be eligible for the trophy. Photocopies of Vet Sheet(s) from the SERC rides must be sent to the Results Co-ordinator immediately after the ride. Vet Sheet(s) received after 24th October in the current competition year will not be counted.

Novice trophy points are awarded for maximum 40km only.
Riders competing in the Home International or Celtic Challenge will be awarded trophy points and the distance. Endurance GB points will be calculated according to the Endurance GB rules and the current points table. This may therefore differ from the points awarded for their part in the competition.
