Q: Can I collect points on a Temporary Horse Registrations?
A: No. Competitors may not collect points on Temporary Horse Registrations.
Q: I was Reserve Champion at the last show, but another rider received more points towards Championship Show. Was there a mistake?
A: Points towards Championship Show and Zone Awards are calculated at each show based on the number of competitors in the class, a standard multiplier factor, and the placings 1stto 6th. This is different than how points are calculated for Champion and Reserve Champion at individual horse shows.
Q: Who gets to go to the Championship Show?
A: The top seven (7) competitors in each division who have attended 50% of the qualifying shows (or a minimum of four) in their specific division are eligible for Trillium Championships Show.

A: A competitor must show (Show = Marked on a Judge’s Card) at a minimum of 50% of the THJA Shows in their zone in their specific division/class for their points to count towards Championship Show. In zones with six or fewer shows, competitors must attend a minimum of four shows regardless of the 50% rule.
Q: What if a competitor in the top seven (7) of the division opts not to attend the Trillium Championship Show?
A: In the event that a qualified competitor opts not to attend the Trillium Championship Show, the competitor in eighth (8th) place will be eligible to attend in their place.
