How to Qualify
How does a horse-rider pair qualify to compete in a zone championship show?
To be eligible to compete, a horse-rider pair must earn a combined average of 58% or higher in Dressage and EOH (L1-L7) and successfully complete the Speed trial (L2-L7) at a minimum of two USAWE licensed shows within a specific performance level. At least one of the scores must be earned during the current competition year. For 2023, the second score may be earned in the current competition year or may be carried over from the immediate previous competition year. Both scores must be earned within the specific performance level. If the Horse-Rider pair has moved up a performance level, two qualifying scores must be earned at that new performance level. If the Horse-Rider pair haven’t yet earned their two qualifying scores at the higher level, they remain eligible to compete at the lower level in the championship shows.

Board-approved special exception for 2023 Western Zone Championship for California members.
Due to canceled shows and travel restrictions placed on California-based horses due to infectious diseases in the California equine community, the USAWE Board of Directors approved an exception to the rule requiring two scores to qualify. The exception allows California horse-rider pairs participating in the 2023 Western Zone Championship to qualify for the event with a single qualified score. (08/09/2023 Board of Director Meeting Minutes). For 2023, this score may be earned in the current competition year or may be carried over from the immediate previous competition year.

The table below is used to track Horse-Rider pairs as they earn their scores and qualify to compete at the Zone Championships.
Names that appear in Bold Blue font indicate that the rider/horse team has qualified to compete in the 2023 Zone Championships at the level displayed.
Please Note: Results from each show are typically posted within 2 weeks of final receipt of all forms, fees, and results from the show, which means they can take a month or more from the show date itself. If you do not see a qualified score you believe should be listed or see a mistake in a recording, please contact the Results Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
