Event Information for Producers AND Competitors

Competitions will use a 20 point marking system to track horse placings in each class.  1st place will receive 20 points, 2nd place - 19, 3rd place - 18, down to 1 point for 20th position.  If there are not at least 20 in a class, the points will start at 20 and go down to the number of entries.  Ex: 5 in a class, last place would receive 16 points.

Competitors MUST register online for each event, and the WFA fees will be paid at that time.  Competitors with no access to online entry form MUST register during the same time frame as the online entries are open.  Fees are as follows:  $25 finals fee, $5 awards fee, $5 office fee - Total $35 per head to be paid at time of registration.  This takes the onus off the event producer, so they can focus on added money and production of event.
