Rules Governing Scoring For High Point Awards
BASIC PREMISE OF THE POINT SYSTEM:
The basic premise of the point system requires that all exhibitors competing for a given championship be afforded an equal opportunity to show. Classes which do not meet requirement will not count.
1. To receive an ASHAM High Point award, the owner of the horse or the equitation rider must be a member of ASHAM in good standing prior to any show in which points are received.
2. Every high point division will have a champion and a reserve champion. If no one achieves the high point, no award is given.
3. In order to win a high point, one must compete at three qualifying high point shows, one of which must be in the state of Michigan.
4. The contestant accumulating the most points by November 1 of the current show year will be the champion. The contestant accumulating the second most points by November 1 of the current year will be the reserve champion. If there is a tie, the award will be given to the contestant who won more blue ribbons that year. If this fails to break the tie, the award will be given to the contestant who earned the most points at shows in the state of Michigan.
5. All qualifying classes count for single points. All championship classes count for double points. If a championship is a combination of two different high point divisions (ex: country pleasure championship) points are divided to respective high point divisions (ex: junior exhibitor ocuntry pleasure and amateur country pleasure).
