After reviewing the 2011 CHSA Finals survey results and hearing from CHSA members and trainers, the CHSA Finals Committee has unanimously approved a change to the qualification process for the CHSA Finals.

The qualifying period for all CHSA Finals Divisions will now begin August 1, 2011 and end Sunday, July 29, 2012.  Points will be retroactive to August 1st, 2011, for all Divisions.  This includes all Pleasure, Hunter and Low Training Jumpers Divisions.

Riders qualify by accumulating points in CHSA Classes held at Recognized CHSA Shows during the qualifying period. The qualifying period for the 2012 CHSA Finals runs from August 1, 2011 to Sunday, July 29, 2012. In determining the date of a competition, the day the show begins is used.

The Top 20 riders/horses in eligible CHSA Divisions qualify and are invited to the CHSA Finals. To be eligible each CHSA Division must have a minimum of 10 riders/horses with each having accumulated more than 25 points during the qualifying period which started August 1, 2011 and ends on Sunday, July 29, 2012.

CHSA English Pleasure riders/horses will only need 12 points to qualify, but still must have a minimum of 10 riders/horses with each having more than 12 points by the qualifying deadline.

The Show Committee may, at its discretion, designate a lower minimum number of qualifying points for any given Year End Division.
