The USEA Leaderboard is formulated based on points earned at USEA recognized competitions throughout the calendar year. In addition to the overall leaderboards for horse, rider, young rider, amateur, pony, lady rider, stallion, and mare of the year, the Leaderboard is also broken down by level with a category for every type of rider!
The Charles Owen Technical Merit Award provides incentives for amateur riders who demonstrate safe and appropriate cross-country technique, and also educates riders and trainers as to what constitutes safe riding across country. Eligible Amateur riders entered in the designated divisions will automatically be judged during their cross-country rounds and will receive score sheets with written comments, which will provide valuable feedback for them and their trainers.
