National & Regional Leader Boards
Leaderboards and Awards Results
Please contact Awards@usawe.org if you see discrepancies in your Membership Info, Horse Recording, licensed show Leader Board or Horse Ranking standings within the competition year. No further changes will be made once licensed show results have been finalized (January 15). Year-End Award recipients will be determined by the end of February. Awards are distributed in March.
Results from each show are typically posted within 2 weeks of final receipt of all forms, fees, and results from that show. The Licensed Competitions Results Processing list indicates when all show forms, fees and results have been received and leaderboard points posted. After viewing the Licensed Competitions Results Processing list, if you do not see a result you believe should be listed, or see a mistake in a recording, please contact email@example.com with the name of the rider, horse, level at which they competed, Region, city, state, show date and show name.
Please see the Competitions > Award Programs page for information on all of our awards, as well as how results are calculated and displayed.

Year-end Leaderboard Award recipients will be determined by the end of February. Awards distributed in March.
Since 2022, USAWE licensed show Leaderboard Ranking Calculations have been provided through the GIRA.io online scoring system, thanks to a special adaptation of the software by its developer, José Bacelar Lourenço.
These Horse Rankings lists USAWE licensed show annual points earned, organized by primary horse breed listed in the Recorded Horses datasheet.
For those breeds with sponsored High Point Breed Awards, these lists will be used to identify the top-point-earning horses each year. Unlike the horse/rider National and Regional Leaderboards (which use only the top four points earned each year), the Horse Ranking lists include cumulative points earned at all USAWE-licensed competitions in a given season. Note: Breed Sponsors may impose additional award criteria. A list of High Point Breed Performance Award Sponsors, Breed Performance Award criteria and Annual Year-end Winners is located online. Visit Competitions > Award Programs.
Year-End High Point Breed Performance award recipients will be determined by the end of February. Awards are distributed in March.
