How does an annual membership designation impact licensed show entries and the annual awards programs?
Youth Membership is for Youth (7-17 yrs. old as of January 1 of the calendar). Youth are encouraged to join or renew as a Youth USAWE member to take advantage of several perks – FREE Youth membership, Youth Scholarship eligibility, Youth National and Regional Leaderboard Awards, Youth High Point Year End Award and special youth activities/events planned by the USAWE Youth Development Committee. Youth members may compete in Youth, Amateur or Open Division (per U.S. Rules for Working Equitation > 1.3 Rider Divisions); however, their leaderboard points from each competition will correspond to the division they showed in at that competition.
Amateur Membership is not age restricted. Members must comply with USEF Rule GR1306 Professional/Amateur Status. Amateur members may compete in Amateur or Open Division (per U.S. Rules for Working Equitation > 1.3 Rider Divisions); however, their leaderboard points from each competition will correspond to the division they showed in at that competition.
Open Membership is not age restricted. Members must compete in the Open Division (per U.S. Rules for Working Equitation > 1.3 Rider Divisions). As an Open member, their Open show results will be used in the Open USAWE Awards Programs.
To earn points toward year-end awards, the horse must be recorded with USAWE prior to competing and the rider must be a current USAWE member within 30 days of the completion of the competition where the points were earned.
