Trakehners Australia Leaderboards are now LIVE...

Trakehners excel in many disciplines.  We want to promote and reward TA member owner/rider/breeder/trainers by recognising achievement in each discipline.  

TA announces the implementation of a Leaderboard for members.  The first year is for the 2022 calendar year.   There will be annual awards for each discipline.  

 

The Leaderboard will commence with categories for Dressage, Eventing and Showjumping.  Categories may be added to,  please feel free to contact us with your suggestions.  

 

The rules of the leaderboard for 2022 are: 

  1. The leaderboard scores are accrued by an approved horse/pony and rider combination.

  2. The combination must comprise:  

    1. a rider who is a TA breeder or owner-rider member (or junior member of these categories); and 

    2. a horse or pony registered with the TA Inc or the TV.  

  3. Entry to the Leaderboard is free for eligible combinations.

  4. The Leaderboard award runs for points accrued at events in the calendar year 1 January to 31 December.  

  5. Eligible disciplines are: 

    1. Dressage

    2. Eventing

    3. Showjumping

  6. Eligible events are: 

    1. EA official Dressage, showjumping and eventing;

    2. Unofficial dressage showjumping and eventing, including HRCAV or Pony Club official and unofficial Dressage, showjumping and eventing (to qualify as eventing, the competition must have all 3 components of dressage, jumping and cross county).  For Dressage, tests with only walk-trot elements do not qualify for leaderboard points. 

  7. The leaderboard points are differently weighted for Official EA compared with HRCAV or Pony Club and unofficial events (see table below)

  8. Results must be submitted within 30 days of events from January to November and for December events, no later than 31 January.    In the first year of this Leaderboard, 2022, results for January – May competitions must be submitted by 30/6/22.  

  9. Only the highest placing score achieved on one competition day is counted.

  10. If your score is an equal placing, full points for that placing are awarded.

  11. For Dressage, score must be a minimum of 55% to gain points.

  12. Freshman jumping is not eligible for points.

  13. The rider of the combination is responsible for correct recording and submissions of all information.

  14. Leaderboard entries are to be made via the TA Inc Website, using the Leaderboard results form (see below), which may also include a need to upload a table of your own results for which you are claiming points and/or results sheet/s for the events claimed that can be authenticated by the competition/show secretary.

  15. Leaderboard entries will be considered by the Leaderboard subcommittee and entered on the Leaderboard when approved by the subcommittee.  A subcommittee member must not enter their own results or those of a horse owned or bred by them into the leaderboard.  The subcommittee reports enry and results to the TA committee at each meeting.  If the subcommittee has any doubt as to the validity of an entry, that entry will be listed at next committee meeting for decision.  TA Inc Committee make all decisions as to the eligibility of claimed points for inclusion in the Leaderboard, and that decision is final.

  16. TA Inc may publish photos of the winners and place getters in the leaderboard on the TA website and/or social media page.  

  17. There will be prizes awarded for each discipline (Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing).  If there are less than 10 entries in any discipline, then prizes will only be awarded to 3rd place.  It is intended that the prizes awarded will be: ​First place = Rug, 2nd place = Saddle cloth, 3rd place = head collar.  4th, 5th and 6th place (if more than 10 entrants) = rosette.
