The CSI HOY competition year is Nov 1st through Oct 31st of the following year
CSI HOY in Driven Dresssage is determined by scores earned, based on high percentage average at each level.
Both schooling and rated events/shows can be counted toward HOY awards. To qualify as a “show” standard tests must be driven and the classes must be placed with awards (ribbons awarded).
In order for dressage tests to count, they must be dated and signed by the judge, including the name of the horse AND driver. .
A minimum of 5 scores per level must be submitted to qualify for HOY awards. Minimum score of 58% or higher to qualify, including at least 2 scores from the 4th test at the level. The total average of all submitted scores must be 60% or higher to earn the award.
Copies of the dressage tests must be submitted to the CSI office. If the dressage score comes from an ADT, HDT or CDE (in the form of penalties), it will be converted to a standard dressage percentage for the purproses of using it in the average for awards purposes.
Test sheets (original or all sides photocopied) including judges signature, must be submitted to the CSI office, postmarked within 15 days of the date on the dressage sheet. Tests must be current year’s dressage tests.
