In all AHJA Medal classes (Category 1 and Category 2), a rider must accrue 2 points to be qualified for the Finals.
Once a rider has accrued the required points, that rider may continue to compete in AHJA Medal classes for the remained of the year and earn placings and awards at each show, however that rider will no longer accumulate points in that Medal section. Instead, qualified riders placing in the top six will be removed from the pointed results and all non-qualified riders will be move up in the results and receive corresponding points for the next highest placing.
In all AHJA Medal classes (Category 2), points will be awarded 10-6-4-2-1-.5 Riders will continue to accrue points for the whole season. If a Medal Final is held, all riders with two (2) or more points in Cat 2 Medals are qualified.
