International Stairway Series

League Points Allocation

A points system will be awarded based on the following system. Points will be awarded to horse/rider combinations placed 8th = or higher on the following scale;
1st  (12 points),  2nd (9 points), 3rd (8 points), 4th (7 points), 5th (6 points), 6th (5 points), 7th (4 points), 8th (3 points)

Horse/rider combinations placed equal will share equally the total points attributable to the combined placings (for example, four riders placed 4th equal receive 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 divided by 4 = 5.5 points each).

In the event of equality of League Points at the end of the series, the highest placed competitor on equal points in the International Stairway League Final (British Showjumping National Championships, National Agricultural & Exhibition Centre) will be the winner of the League.  The winner of the International Stairway League must be a starter in the International Stairway League Final.  In addition the winner of the International Stairway League Final will be crowned the British Showjumping National Champion for a twelve month period.

There will be 4 HOYS International Invitations allocated after the International Stairway League Final. The allocation of invites (NB International Invites will only be awarded to riders currently eligible to compete on a Great Britain Showjumping Team) will be made in the following order of preference -:

 1. To the winner of the International Stairway League (must have started in the Stairway League Final)
 2. To the winner of the International Stairway League Final
 3. To the winner of the National Championship  Show League
4.  To the leading Under 25 rider on the National Championship Show League

 Should the winner of any of the above not be eligible to compete on a Great Britain Showjumping Team or have already qualified for HOYS via an International invitation, the Wildcard will go down the line to the next eligible rider on the respective league, or placing if in the International Stairway League Final.
