22 December 2015 - Qualifying Schedules for HOY

There has been some confusion over which shows are running which qualifying sections.  A new schedule has been placed on the website under the HOY listing. This lists the shows (that have submitted their schedules for qualification) with what sections qualify.  The qualifying sections relate to what is needed to qualify for that particular section at HOY.  For example.  To enter for one of the Rider title classes, you need to have received two firsts in the particular age group, plus have your three show attendance. (Your age class you are entering at HOY must reflect the age class you received a first placing in.) The Show Qualifying  Schedules have been split in to age groups so you can easily identify which shows are running which qualifying age groups.
