USEF Cup Incentive Awards for Owners and Trainers



United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is again offering exhibitors in the Morgan and Saddlebred Divisions the opportunity to take part in a program that will provide an annual incentive award of $1,000 to the owners of the top horse that competes at USEF Cup competitions in their respective divisions.  Additionally, the trainer of each horse will be awarded $500 for their efforts.

In order for individuals to be eligible for this incentive program, they must be a USEF member and record their horse (annual or life) with USEF prior to competing at any competitions offering the USEF Cup designation.  A horse can only earn points in the division in which it competes.  All classes in each Division/Section (not just classes offered for Horse of the Year; exception: Equitation) will count toward points for this award. 

POINTS* WILL BE ACCRUED AS FOLLOWS IN ALL CLASSES AT SHOWS WITH THE USEF CUP COMPETITION DESIGNATION

1st             2nd         3rd         4th         5th
50 points 45 points 40 points 35 points 30 points

*Equitation classes do not count towards the award. 1/2 points will be given at Local USEF competitions specific to these breeds
