The Pinellas County Hunter Association is offering an extended Rider Incentive program. It is offered in two age categories for our junior riders. To qualify for this fund, the junior rider must complete an application, date it and turn it in to the show office. Please be aware that points will be accrued from the show that the application was submitted and not before.
The rider incentive will be divided by age groups. Juniors with the ages 13 - 17 (The rider must be 13 as of December 1st of that show year) and juniors 12 & under will qualify. Our show year begins December1st and ends November 30th of the next year. All applicants must be paid members of that show year and have a Social Security number. In their age group, the three high point riders in all PCHA hunter, equitation and jumper classes will receive monetary rewards that we hope will go toward deferring the cost of education on the college level while awarding their achievements in their equestrian endeavors. The first place award in each age group will be $1000, the second and third place awards will be $500 each. No one rider will be eligible to receive scholarship money more than two times in one or both age categories combined. If it is found that a junior has cross-entered in any divisions that are not allowed as stated on the prize list, their applications will be null and void.
All rider incentive applicants will be required to check in with the horse show office at the end of each show to record the divisions/classes they entered and horses/ponies they showed. Points will NOT count for that show if you fail to record your results. Points may be recorded when you check out.
PCHA is blessed with having the means to give back some monetary rewards to their membership each year. We hope to enhance the prestige of all equestrian events. Thank you from the PCHA Board of Directors
