Once enrolled, horses and riders are entitled to:
1. PARTICIPATE IN QUALIFYING CLASSES: Held in conjunction with the Green Hunter 3' & 3'3" Divisions, the fourth over fences round of each division also counts as the $1,000 CPHA West Coast Green Hunter 3' & 3'3" Incentive Class at participating shows. Earn extra money without riding an extra round!
2. COMPETE IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP: Participate in two CPHA West Coast Green Hunter 3' & 3'3" Incentive Class Qualifiers and earn a spot in the Championship with prize money of $25,000 + 45% of enrollment fees. A "Championship Week - Pay to Compete" Incentive Enrollment Fee of $1,200 is also available to all enrolled horses who were unable to compete throughout the season.
3. EARN BONUS AWARDS: Besides earning added prize money throughout the season, the top three point earning horses and riders will also earn Cash Bonus Awards. Points are accumulated at qualifiers, and the Bonus Awards will be presented prior to the commencement of the Championship. A second 45% of the enrollment fees apply to these awards, so the more riders and horses enrolled, the higher the Bonus at the end of the season.
4. EARN USEF HOTY POINTS: HOTY points are awarded for ribbons won in each qualifier as well as in the Championship.
