OAM YOUNG INTERNATIONAL AWARDS RULES & GUIDLINES. a. The awards will be based on the results of horse and rider as a single combination. There is no limit to the number of horses a rider may compete with. But a rider cannot mix the points from more than one horse to obtain a score and will gain only one final placing. b. The score is obtained by UP TO a max of 4 runs in CCI or CIC competition. Because a horse, for a result to count, will compete at its appropriate level, and we wish to promote good results, the Star level of a competition will not matter. However, there will be a multiplier to the composite score of 1.3 for a CCI over a CIC. c. Since there are to be 5 Internationals in Ireland in 2006, it will not be essential to travel abroad to reach the maximum number of score-able runs. d. The opportunity to score points should reflect the Goals appropriate to excellence in performance and thus a bonus point system will reward quality in every phase. e. The winners must propose an acceptable training plan for which the money will be used. When approved, the recipients must write a report on the plan and also obtain a written report from the Coach they visited. f. Prizes will be as follows - 1st - €3,000, 2nd - €2,000 and 3rd - €1,000. So the scoring system plus bonus points is as follows: (A) Basic Finish placing: Finish in the Top 3 Individually 10 points Finish 4 to 12 7 points Finish 13 to 20 (If more than 30 starters) 3 points Finish outside the top 20 does not merit basic placing points, but should be eligible for bonus points if good enough in any particular phase.
