Mini Stirrup Walk-Trot
This is not a High Score Division. An Achievement Award for this division will be given to every rider who accumulates a total of 400 points. No year-end Champion or Reserve will be awarded, and no placement awards will be given to riders who do not reach the Achievement Award level. Once reaching a total of 400 points, a rider may continue to show in the Mini Stirrup Division, or may show in another division where eligible without losing his or her Achievement Award for the current year.
Riders are cautioned to be careful when advancing out of the Mini Stirrup division when interest is shown in other High Score Programs or Divisions, or in Finals-type horse shows.
Open to riders 10 years of age or under as of the current show year. Riders not to have shown over fences 2' or higher at any horse show. Riders may not cross-enter into any other class or division at the same show where they are required to canter. The division must include at least three of the following classes:
• Walk-Trot Equitation
• Walk-Trot Pleasure
• Walk-Trot Figure Eight
• Cross-Rails - 4 cross-rails under 2’. Management is required to mark the judge’s card and course description with the specifications of this class as “cantering is NOT required.”
PLEASE NOTE: USEF requires that any exhibitor jumping a course is required to be a USEF member, even if the division is W/T only. To retain the USEF W/T membership exemption for Mini Stirrup riders, Show Managers at USEF competitions may wish to substitute ground poles or raised cavaletti, and note it as such in the prize list.
NOTE: Once a rider canters or jumps 2' or higher at any horse show, that rider is no longer eligible for Mini Stirrup.
