How to Qualify:
Riders and horses qualify as a team so the rider must qualify on the horse he or she intends to compete on at the BC Summer Games. Rider/horse combinations who compete at sanctioned qualifier classes will have their scores recorded for those classes.  The horse/rider combination with the highest score in each of the zones will qualify to compete at the BC Summer Games for their zone.  Riders are encouraged to compete at as many qualifiers as possible and their highest score will be used in calculating their standing within their zone.  All qualifiers will have NRHA judges.  Due to the age restrictions the classes will not be NRHA approved so riders will not be required to have NRHA membership nor do the horses require NRHA licenses.   Riders can attend and declare at any sanctioned qualifier class however their scores will be recorded for the zone they live in regardless of which zone the competition takes place in.   A rider declaration form must be filled out by the competitor prior to competing in the qualifying classes at the competition. Declaration forms can also be obtained from the show secretary. Each discipline sport chair will work with the zone reps to determine the team for each zone based on competition results. All summer games participants will be notified of the team members by June 26, 2006.
