USEF Cup Incentive Program Announced as Pilot for 2011



Lexington, Kentucky - United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) is offering exhibitors in Morgan and Saddlebred Divisions the opportunity to take part in a pilot program that will provide an annual incentive award of $1,000 given to the owners of the top horse that competes at USEF competitions.

In order for individuals to be eligible for this new 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 - 50 points
2nd - 45 points
3rd - 40 points
4th - 35 points
5th - 30 points

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

If you already have a membership and want to record your horse to be eligible for this program go to the USEF Authorized User Area: https://www.usef.org/_AUAIFrames/Login/Default.aspx.

If you want to print off a horse recording form instead go to: http://www.usef.org/documents/membership/2011HorseApplication.pdf.

Or you may ask the secretary for a horse recording form at the competition.

To see a list of the competitions that have signed up for this program in 2011, please check the following link on USEF.org: http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/breedsDisciplines/breeds/USEFCup.aspx.
