Qualifying Points for the 2013 Adequan Select World Championship Show
Qualifying Period: June 1, 2012 - June 16, 2013
Please be aware that if you qualified between May and December 31, 2012, your qualification should appear on the list. Most shows held in January and February have been completed, though not all. The qualifiers list will be updated every Friday as shows are processed, so please check back if you do not see your name.
Exhibitors 70 Years and Over:
For exhibitors 70 years and over, only half the set qualifying points are required in order to qualify. If the point(s) required has 0.5 point, round down to the whole number and half of that number.
AQHA began the Amateur Invitational program for the 2011 Adequan Select and Bank of America Amateur world shows. Through the Amateur Invitational program, AQHA will invite the top point-earning horse/exhibitor combination per class per state/affiliate that does not reach the minimum number of points set to qualify. New for the 2013 Select World Show, the amateur/horse combination will be required to reach at least half the points set as the minimum to qualify in order to be invited as an affiliate/state invitee in each particular class (for example: if the minimum number of points set to qualify for Select Amateur Aged Mares is 3.5, the invitee must have reached at least 1.5 points in order to be invited - note that if a class requires points that include .5 point, AQHA will round down and require half of THAT number). This program is operated by AQHA, not the affiliate, and exhibitors are invited based on the state in which they reside, not where they show.
Once the actual qualifiers are run (around June 27), AQHA will run the list of those that were top in their class but didn't qualify. Those invitations will be sent out around July 10th.
Ties will be broken by the exhibitor who won the last point or 0.5 point first.
If a horse reaches the number of qualifying points required to show in performance halter and earns its performance Register of Merit during the qualifying period (June 1, 2012, thru May 31, 2013), it will qualify to show in the performance halter at the 2013 Select World Show. If a horse earned its performance ROM prior to the qualifying period, he/she will need an additional 10 riding points during the qualifying period in order to qualify for the 2013 Select World Show (and must also reach the number of qualifying points required in performance halter). Riding points earned in the youth, open, amateur and Select amateur divisions during the qualifying period can cross over to count for Select performance halter. Showmanship points do not count.
Because amateur ranch pleasure was not approved in its own division prior to January 1, 2013, if a horse/rider combination competed in open ranch pleasure between August 1 and December 31, 2012, those points may be counted toward select world show qualification. However, points can only count once and if anyone other than the select amateur intending to qualify for the select world show rode the horse in open competition, those points must remain as open points. Exhibitors need to contact AQHA with their intentions regarding select ranch horse pleasure.
