2024 GHF YEAR-END AWARDS RULES
To be eligible for these awards, riders do not have to be GHF members nor do they have to submit their scores. Scores from the two 2024 Good Horseman USEF/USDF-recognized shows (April and July) will be used.
It is the competitors’ responsibility to check their scores that are published when the year-end results are posted on the GHF website’s Awards page following the last GHF show of the year and to report any possible errors to the GHF manager at 404-289-9328.
A special framed certificate will be mailed to the top horse/rider combination achieving the highest percentile (averaged percentage) in the following levels: Training through Fourth Level, Prix St. Georges, Intermediaire I, II, A and B, Grand Prix and Freestyle (any level). The four FEI Intermediaire tests will count as one level. Scores used will be from the Open, Adult Amateur and Jr./YR divisions only. Special ribbons will be mailed to the second and third high-score winners.
To compete for this award, riders must perform in both 2024 GHF Shows (April and July) and achieve at least three scores of 60% and above from the same level to be averaged (no scores will be dropped). Results below 60% will not be awarded.
Also awarded will be The Good Horseman Medal which will be given to riders achieving scores of 75% or better at Training through the FEI levels (Adult Amateur, Jr./Young Rider and Open divisions), excluding Freestyle, Introductory, the FEI Young Horse and Rider tests which are scored differently and cannot be compared.
Riders achieving scores of 80.000% and above will receive the GHF “Gold Medal”.
Our Awards Guru. . .
Over the years, the GHF awards program has been getting bigger, better and definitely more complicated, and the driver behind all this hard work is Mary Lou Freil, who not only is the organizer of our popular Awards Ceremony during our shows, but at the end of the year she uses her extensive data management skills to find out who is on top from our show results throughout the year. Very few people could do all that and we are very lucky to have her!
Col. Mark Fornwalt, US Army retired, better known as GHF's USEF Emergency Coordinator and chief ring steward for both GHF and GDCTA, has won USDF Region 3's 2022 Volunteer of the Year Award, sponsored by both GHF and The Georgia Dressage and Combined Training Association. Mark received the trophy at the 2022 USDF Convention in Lexington, KY, Dec. 3.
