SCORING:

  • The results must be submitted immediately to Pony Club WA according to the instructions given.

By the central remote Scorer:

Individual

Step 1: Collate results received from Judges physically present and judging the rounds.
Step 2: Use the following Points System to allocate the corresponding points to each Rider.

Points System

  1. Every Rider that completes an event will score points according to their placing in their field:
    1. First place overall – 35 points
    2. Second place overall – 34 points
    3. Third place overall – 33 points and so on.
  2. If a Rider is eliminated in an event, they will not be awarded points for that event. However, they are eligible to score points in the other events.
  3. These Individual Rider points for each event are added together progressively throughout the Championship to determine the Individual Champion.
  4. In the event of an equal placing in an event, the scores will be added together and divided equally.

Scoring – Team Championship – Combined Junior/Senior Teams

  1. Teams consist of a minimum of six and a maximum of 12 Riders with the best 3 scores to count. To be eligible for a Team placing, at least six members of the Team must complete each scheduled event.
  2. A minimum of six Team members must ride all Championship events before the Team is eligible for an award.
  3. Points obtained by the six highest placed riders in each Team for each event are totalled for that event.
  4. In the case of the equality of points for the final placing, the scores will be added and divided equally. If these are still equal, then the placings are tied.
  5. If a Rider is eliminated, which would preclude the Team from obtaining a Team score, then the eliminated Rider can continue for the Team (receiving 20 penalties more than the worst placed competitor who has finished that round), thereby enabling the Team to be scored in the following way:
    1. If the Team is a two-round event, then the Rider carries that score into the next round.
    2. If the Team event is, for example, an AM5 then the score obtained by the above method becomes the Rider’s Team score.

Scoring – Team Championship – Sub-Junior Teams

  1. Teams consist of a minimum of three and a maximum of six Riders with the best 3 scores to count. To be eligible for a Team placing, at least three members of the Team must complete each scheduled event.
  2. A minimum of three Team members must ride all Championship events before the Team is eligible for an award.
  3. Points obtained by the three highest placed riders in each Team for each event are totalled for that event. 
  4. In the case of the equality of points for the final placing, the scores will be added and divided equally. If these are still equal, then the placings are tied.
  5. If a Rider is eliminated, which would preclude the Team from obtaining a Team score, then the eliminated Rider can continue for the Team (receiving 20 penalties more than the worst placed competitor who has finished that round), thereby enabling the Team to be scored in the following way:
    1. If the Team is a two-round event, then the Rider carries that score into the next round.
    2. If the Team event is, for example, an AM5 then the score obtained by the above method becomes the Rider’s Team score.
