NEW SECRETARY ADDRESS 2014
We are delighted to welcome Ellen Thomson to the Team Challenge staff as the new secretary for the event. The event continues to grow each year, and we are excited to have Ellen join the team! Please note the new mailing address for entries, which should be directed to:
1118 Evondale Way
Goshen, KY 40026
The email address for the event remains the same, email@example.com
Be sure to include a legible email address with your entry, as this is the only way we will communicate with you privately. Entry status will be posted online periodically throughout the entry period.
Team Challenge will offer team competition from Beginner Novice through Preliminary in the Horse Trials, a CCI* hosting the USEF national trophies, along with the National P3D and T3D levels. All HT divisions are OPEN divisions. All three day divisions are individuals only, not team competitions.
Hope you join us for a great event in October!
All FEI riders will be stabled together, along with their extra horses. All P3D & T3D riders will also be stabled together, in barns adjacent to the CCI riders. All 3Day horses must be stabled on grounds throughout the competition. Riders in the HT only will be located with their travel groups as indicated on the stabling forms.
There are several other events and activities at the Park this week so hotel and campground reservations should be made very early!
Opening Date CCI* & P3D & T3D Aug 19
Opening Date HT Sep 2 - Draw Date Sep 16
This event uses vinyl XC bibs and paper pinny inserts.
These forms are interactive, and may be downloaded and completed before printing for submission. Do not leave any spaces blank; response required for each section.
Riders or Owners who want to pay entry fees via credit card have the option to use the USEA XEntry system. This process can be used by any USEA member. Canadian riders or USEA non-members may use XEntry by creating a USERID in the Dashboard system.
The link to begin this process is XEntry. Credit card processing fees do apply.
PLEASE NOTE: You must still print out the entry form and mail it to the Secretary to be considered an entry in the event if you are using XEntry or any other electronic process. All fees and signatures must be included. If you pay via credit card on XEntry, the "postmark" is the date you submit the entry. If you do not pay with credit card, your postmark on the mailed entry will apply. The secretary will expect paid online entries in the mail just as with those completed online but not paid.
The HT traditionally has long wait lists for spaces in the event. MAIL your entry on the same day you complete the online process, and clearly indicate your TEAM name. There will be no way to link entries done online with others sent via mail, unless you follow this process.
Rider Limits by Level for the event:
Entries in the Entire Event - 5
Entries in the HT Trng - BN only - 4
Entries in HT Nov and BN only - 2
Entries in the CCI* may compete only 1 horse in the Classic Format 3Day-
Attention: All Competitors
If you enter the event via XEntry or EventEntries, you MUST MAIL your printed entry at the same time. This applies to 3Day and HT entries. Teams are accepted ahead of individual entries postmarked the same day, and the secretary will have no way to link entries by team if they are processed differently. You may certainly use online processes, but the hard copy will be used to sort the teams.
Classic Three Day Incentive Program
Hagyard Midsouth 3Day & Team Challenge HT is delighted to offer an Incentive for our Classic (Long Format) riders. Each Training 3Day competitor who completes the event will be offered a Classic Format Voucher, which will entitle the rider or the horse the opportunity to compete at the Classic Preliminary level at a reduced cost. The voucher will provide a $75 discount for a qualified entry for either the same rider or the same horse in the Prelim 3Day [P3D] division at the 2015 or 2016 Hagyard Midsouth Three Day.
We hope this incentive will provide support to our riders as they progress in their development as Classic Eventers. We look forward to many more graduates in our two-part program of Three Day competitions!
Volunteers for this event are always welcome! We will be glad to work around your ride times. If you can help, please click on the Volunteers link in the left sidebar. We will be in touch!
The team competition for horse trials divisions at the Mid-South 3Day and Team Challenge HT in October is conducted in the following manner. Note that all HT divisions are OPEN divisions. Each of the team members, either 3 or 4 riders, will ride dressage at the same time in adjacent rings (which comprise the individual divisions), and then will jump both XC and show jumping in consecutive order. No team may have a rider on two or more horses. If teams have been submitted with a rider on multiple horses, the extra rides will be placed in the list of individual entries. Riders may contact the secretary to indicate which ride should be the first team horse.
We will schedule the teams that entered on Opening Date first, and then add teams and individual entries as we have room. All riders will be placed either on short teams of 3, or on composite teams that we assemble. All accepted riders will be listed online after the Draw Date. If a team member must be replaced, the secretary will backfill the vacancy from the waitlist until the list is exhausted. Teams which drop below three members after we have exhausted our waitlist will cease to exist as a team, but the remaining riders will still compete as individuals. Substitutions at the same level of either horse or rider, but not both, will be accepted if qualified for that level. Please understand that these policies are in place to treat the waitlisted riders fairly. Team scores are determined by adding together the lowest three scores from the team riders. Team scores and placings are re-calculated using this formula after each phase of competition.All teams are encouraged to join in the fun of cross-country day by wearing safe, appropriate costumes!
Please read the article linked here for details on how we replace scratched riders on our teams, as well as options for teams who need to replace a rider.
Send your entries on Opening Date to give your team the best chance of getting into the event!
