									Northeast PA Show Series

 Four Northeast Pennsylvania show barns have joined together to present the
Northeast PA Show Series. These barns are: Hidden Creek Equestrian Center,
Bit By Bit Equestrian Center, Twin Lakes Equestrian Center and Burgundy
Hollow Farm. The show series will culminate in a year-end Championship
Competition which will be held at Hidden Creek Equestrian Center on Saturday,
October 3, 2009. This Championship Show will not be registered with any other
organization, such as ESDCTA, and therefore, scores obtained at this show will
not count towards any other year-end award programs.

 Championship classes will be offered in both Dressage and Combined Training.
In order to qualify for the Championship Show, a competitor must achieve at
least two qualifying scores at two different show grounds and in front of two
different judges. Qualifying scores must be earned at one of the qualifying
shows offered by the four participating barns. The qualifying score required for
all Dressage Championship classes is 60% or higher. The qualifying score
required for all Combined Training Championship classes is 45% or lower.
Qualifying Scores must be earned between April 1, 2009 and September 20,
2009.

 There will be a Mounted Awards Ceremony for each Dressage and Combined
Training Division. Ceremonies will be held throughout the day as Divisions are
completed.
