Qualification for the Trailblazers Championship Finals
Numbers to Qualify
The 4 highest placed combinations will qualify from each Showing & Working Hunter Qualifier for the Trailblazers Championship Finals regardless of the number of entries in the Qualifier.
Only qualified partnerships (horse / pony and rider) from a Trailblazers Qualifier are eligible to compete at the Trailblazers Championship Finals.
Once qualifying partnerships have purchased their qualification card and sent it to the Trailblazers Show Secretary they are permitted to enter any Showing or Working Hunter Class for which they are eligible to compete in.
Once a Competitor has qualified at a Trailblazers Qualifier they will be issued with an envelope from the Venue at which they have qualified containing a congratulatory letter telling them that they have qualified. The Competitor will then have the choice to take up the qualification or not. Should the Competitor decide to accept the qualification for the Championship Finals, they will return the congratulatory letter (within 14 days) together with the appropriate fee and a stamped addressed envelope (SAE), to the Venue of Qualification. The SAE will be used to return a Qualification Card.
Once the qualification card has been received the competitor must send this onto the Trailblazers Show Secretary (details on the qualification card) in order to be sent a Trailblazers Championship Finals schedule at the beginning of June prior to the Championships.
