WHAT CLASSES ARE YOU GOING TO RIDE AT THE TRIPLE WORLD RANKING SHOWS?

We have had lots of questions about the competition in October! First remember that we are actually running three separate World Ranking shows during one weekend, one each day Friday, Saturday and Sunday and there will be no finals. We will be handing out daily medals in many classes and special Triple Ice Championship awards that reflect scores over three days in all the classes…

If you look at the class entry form and the schedule you will notice that each class may be offered on more than one day. This is a great opportunity to try out and practice classes!  It also means some classes may have no entries so watch the schedules carefully and listen to announcements!

In order to make it possible for riders to qualify for the world ranking we are offering preliminary rounds each of the three days/shows in T1, T2, V2, F1, T3,T4,V2, F2O, PP1 and P2. Anyone is welcome to be in these classes and you may ride more than one horse. You don’t have to be trying out for the World Ranking! Once again it is a great opportunity to try out your programs and get feedback.

ENTRY FORM, DROPS and ADDS: Because we are doing the paperwork for three shows, please follow these rules for signing up for your classes:

**Sign up for your classes with each horse on a separate entry form by SEPTEMBER 30th!

**Please drop or add a class by 5:00 the night before the competition. Adds on the day of the competition will only be made at the discretion of the show secretary and will charged $15

**It is much easier to adapt the paperwork to drops than adds so there will be no penalty for dropping a class….keep that in mind as you choose your classes and think ahead!

WHAT DOES WORLD RANKING MEAN?

• The FEIF WorldRanking is a system to compare results between riders of pure-bred Icelandic horses at selected sport events all over the world.

• The position of a rider in any class in the FEIF WorldRanking is based upon the arithmetic mean of their three best results with a horse in a class.

• Any rider will need at least three scores (that is why we are running three separate one day shows for the October show) of 5.50 or higher in the preliminary rounds of the track classes Tölt T1, Tölt T2, Four Gait V1, Five Gait F1, Tölt T3, Tölt T4, Four Gait V2, Five Gait F2 (our F2O) and Pace Test PP1 or the equivalent time in SpeedPass P2 (8.70″) in order to qualify for the WorldRanking.

• A WR tournament is judged by at least 5 Sport Judges, 3 of them must be FEIF international Sport Judges. -→ At our show in October, we will have SEVEN FEIF international Sport Judges who will be rotating in the five positions!

• The highest and the lowest mark of the judges will be disregarded, the final mark is based on the average of the remaining three marks.

• Results are valid for a period of two years.

The final day of preliminaries, after each World Ranking class has been completed the five horse/rider combinations in each class with the highest combined scores from the three days of competition will receive Triple Ice Champion awards.

For the  Intermediate, Novice, Youth, Beginner, 3G, PT, and Green Horse classes medals will be given daily in each class. On Sunday after each class has been completed the horse/rider combination or green horse with the highest combined score in that class from the three days of competition will receive a Triple Ice Champion award.

 

The North American Bred Triple Ice Champion Horse Award

To acknowledge the excellent breeding that is being done in the United States- at the end of the Triple World Ranking Competitions, the North American bred horse with the highest combined three scores from any class over the three days of competition will receive the award for North American Bred Triple Ice Champion.

Good luck to all who are participating- We are excited to award the deserving recipients!
