Year-End Awards





To be eligible for NDPC Pony or Small Horse Year-End Awards, each pony/rider and horse/rider combination must become members of the NDPC Pony Division and NDPC Small Horse Division, respectively. Ponies must have a current valid USEF Pony Measurement on file with the USEF and small horses must have a current and valid NDPC Small Horse Measurement Form submitted to the NDPC by October 31.


There is no minimum or maximum number of scores required to be eligible. All scores from any USDF sanctioned show will count toward Year-End Awards. Horses and ponies may compete at more than one level with the same rider, as long as the levels are consecutive. Non-members are not eligible for Year-End Awards.


Scores will have a degree of difficulty figured in per test and then will be averaged. High Point is given to the highest single score without degree of difficulty points added. Year-End Awards will be given as shown in the chart below. Our show year is November 1 - October 31.​
