STATE TITLES POINTSCORE
State Title winners will be determined as follows:
A rider/horse combination will be allocated points according to their result in the First Round of the Title. The first placed starter is allocated as many points as there are starters, plus one (1), in descending order to the last placed starter who is allocated one (1) point. For example, in a competition with 30 starters, the first placed starter is allocated 31 points, the second placed starter is allocated 29 points and so forth to the last placed starter who is allocated 1 point. The same scoring system is used for Round 2 and the Title Final Competition.
Points from the Round 1, Round 2 and Final competition will be added together to determine the State Title Winner. In the event of equality of points at the completion of the Final competition the rider placed highest in the Final competition for their division shall be declared the state winner.
