2021 NEHC Junior Medal Qualifying Specifications

By neec | News & Updates

The New England Equitation Committee has extended last year’s change in qualifying specifications for the NEHC Junior Medal through the 2021 show season. Junior riders can now qualify for NEEC Finals in the following ways:

10 Points qualifies as a win.
1st place equals 10 points
2nd place equals 5 points

So 2 second places qualifies you for the finals. Once you have qualified, you are no longer eligible to compete in that seat for that year of Medal qualifying classes.
