2017 QLD Festival of Dressage Amateur Owner Leaderboard

The leaderboard has been updated and can be found here. With only one event to go, things are looking very exciting!!

Dressage Queensland have proposed some changes to the leaderboard in 2017. The reasons for these changes are:

  1. To allow more clubs to host leaderboard events at their premium events, 
  2. To diversify the location of leaderboard events to cater for our less centrally located AAOR riders
  3. To reduce the risk of overcompeting and compromise to horse welfare that can happen with a very full calendar of points-based results

The changes to the leaderboard in 2017 will be from a points-based system to a percentage-based system, similar to what is currently used to calculate DQ end-of-year trophies. The leaderboard will be decided upon the 6 best percentages achieved by a combination from any leaderboard event. Combinations can compete in as many or as little leaderboard events as they wish over the season, so long as they have 6 scores for calculation at the end of the season. There will be no weighting of scores (additional multiplication applied for events of higher prestige), all leaderboard events will be treated equally.

Leaderboard events in 2017 will be:

  • Caboolture 1* and 2*
  • PRARG 2*'s
  • Toowoomba 2*
  • NADEC 1* and 2*
  • NAGS 1* and 2*
  • Samford EG 1*
  • Summerland Dressage Group Championships
  • Tweed Valley Equestrian Group Championships
  • AAOR Championships
  • QLD State Championships
  • AAOR National Championships
