Winners are selected by the judges and receive points based on the number of class entries. Standings are based on points accumulated by winners throughout the competition year.


The proceeds will help reduce the unwanted horse population, retrain horses for multiple careers, and make equine therapy available to more people with special needs.

For the EQUUS Foundation, it's all about how horses move us beyond our boundaries - as athletes and humanitarians.
