1 - Martial Course. A scored "Gamblers Choice" martial course will
account for one half the total for the day. By Gamblers Choice I
mean there will be a collection of elements laid out on the riding
lists and each competitor will be given the option of running them
in any order they wish. Weapons will be carried by
or staged on the course and not held/presented by ground crew. Each
element of the course will have a point value for successful
completion. While some will have value based on relative success
(number of rings, size of rings, number of heads, etc., some will
have a all or nothing value. There will be a target time for
completion of the course. All riders coming in under the target
time will be have their score increased by half. Point total will
then be added to the scores from Part 2 and 3.
Part 2 - Pageantry. Each rider will perform an 2 to 3 minute ride
intended to show off their horse at its finest. Riders will be
expected to walk, trot and canter, reinback, show lead changes at
the canter (simple or flying) and lateral movement light side-pass,
half-pass, shoulder-in, etc. Costuming and barding will be taken
into account as three to five judges (depending on who is present),
including the Prince and/or Princess, average their score of up to
Part 3 - Pure Horsemanship. Every equestrian present will be giving
a score card with the names of all the competitors on the day. They
will then score every competitor on the general horsemanship (care,
handling, training and riding of the horse), from the ENTIRE day.
That means from morning feeding, through grooming and tack up, warm
up, competition and aftermath. These scores will be from 1-10 with
the high and low scores tossed out and will be totaled and added to
the over all score.
The rider with the highest total score will become Outrider of the
