Hopefully helpful information.
General Rules Information that spans across the board for multiple sections of riders. Mainly addressing the amature or "non-pro" as well as the professional status of riders. These were taken from the USEF General Rules.
Hunter/Jumper Information provided below used through the USHJA rulebooks. Please note that we've bent some things here and there to allow EV to be more fair to all especially with our limited numbers of characters in certain areas. These are just some basic guidelines to be taken into consideration when making characters.
* Level 9 is often considered the National Standard for a Grand Prix class.
From Prelim to Intermediate horse & rider must have 4 or more NQRs (National Qualifying Result) to move to the next level. From Intermediate to Advanced there is only 1 required. This doesn't have much bearing on EV but consider that when jumping a character around through the levels!
* CCIO Includes: Olympics, World Championships, Pan Am Games, and other continental championships.
Of course all International events are described with the number of stars next to the type of event. * is for horses being just introduced, ** is for horses that have some experience, *** is for advanced horses and **** is the highest with only six events of the 4* level being run across the world. Those six are Badminton, Burghley, Rolex, Adelaide, Luhmuhlen Horse Trials, and Stars of Pau.
Dressage Using information from the FEI rule book as well as Dressage Academy for this section. Please note that we have not included the international information on CDI competitions. Nor have we included Grand Prix Special or Freestyle on our list.
Western Pleasure For the purposes of EV we have two sections of Western Pleasure available to competitors at the moment. Non-Pro and Pro. Horses can begin competing as of two years old and because we do not divide these entrants up by level there is no advantage or disadvantage on EV to having a younger or older horse.
Reining For the purposes of EV we have two sections of Reining available to competitors at the moment. Non-Pro and Pro. Horses can begin competing as of two years old and because we do not divide these entrants up by level there is no advantage or disadvantage on EV to having a younger or older horse.
