POINT SYSTEM
Each contestant will earn 5 base points in the division they place in PLUS bonus points based on how they place and according to how many runners. If one person places more than once in a division, they receive the 5 base points for each placing. but only the bonus points for the highest placing in that division. Runs with penalties will not receive any points.

 

BONUS POINTS FOR EACH DIVISION:
1-50 runners = 10 pts for first, 9 for 2nd, etc.
50-100 runners - 15 pts for 1st, 14 for 2nd, etc.
100-150 - 20 pts for 1st, etc.
150-200- 25 Pts for 1st, etc.


For example - a person winning the 1D with 90 runners will receive 5 base points plus their bonus points of 15 = 20 points. If this person also places in the 1D on an additional horse, they will only receive 5 additional base points. POINTS are on rider only.
