Facts about 2012 NAJYRC Certificates of Capability

February 2, 2012



Per the 2012 FEI North American Junior/Young Rider Championships Selection Procedures, each horse/rider combination must complete a Certificate of Capability in order to compete in the Championships. The new requirement for 2012 is that a 3 meter open water must be included as part of the course.

For the North American Junior Championships, a Certificate of Capability is considered complete when the horse/rider combination completes a course set at 1.40m or higher with at least a 3 meter open water as part of the course, with a score of 4 faults or less within the Zone’s qualifying period.

For the North American Young Rider Championships, a Certificate of Capability is considered complete when the horse/rider combination completes a course set at 1.45m or higher with at least a 3 meter open water as part of the course, with a score of 4 faults or less within the Zone’s qualifying period.

• Note that four faults at the open water will count toward the total faults incurred on course.

• An open water jump is not a Liverpool and does not have a rail over it.

• To fulfill the Certificate of Capability requirement, riders will have the option of utilizing a form to be signed by the judge.
