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!
After a rough 2020, we DO have some year-end high scores to report from the two shows that did survive the pandemic: The August Summer Show and September's Fall Show. We did not have enough FEI or Freestyle rides in two shows to tabulate the Year-End awards for those rides, but we had some stellar rides in the USEF levels that we can be proud of. We do hope that our four four shows next year will not face such peril as was presented by 2020--the year that we all would like to forget! Framed award certificates will be arriving to the winners soon!
2021 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 four 2021 Good Horseman USEF/USDF-recognized shows (February, April, June and July) will be used. Final tabulations will be done by the GHF office at the end of the year following the July show.
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 office 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 Intermediaire tests will count as one level. Scores used will be from the Open, Adult Amateur and Jr./YR divisions only. Certificates will be mailed to the reserve high-score winners.
To compete for this award, riders must have 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”.
