Here’s what you need to know about eligibility and registration to participate in Festival Championships at the USPC Festival 2021 Presented by SSG Riding Gloves, Sponsored by State Line Tack.
USPC Festival Championships 2021 Eligibility
USPC Festival Championships 2021 is open to members 10 years of age or older (as of January 1, 2021), with a D-2 certification who meet the competition eligibility requirements. The postponement of Festival led to an expanded eligibility period for the 2021 event, and the possibility of exception requests for rallies that were missed due to COVID concerns.
• Eligibility period, June 1, 2019 – June 27, 2021.
• Entry Time Period – May 1 through Noon ET, Monday, June 28.
• Championships competitors must submit and pay their entry using the online system, by the deadline.
• Specific age, certification and competition criteria for each discipline is available here.
• No exceptions will be made for minimum age and certification requirements.
• If a member wasn’t able to attend a rally (i.e. region didn’t host one, COVID concerns, etc.) and they meet the minimum age and certification, they should explore the possibility of an exception request. Exceptions must be submitted by the member’s regional supervisor and the process is outlined here.
• Mount Substitutions – If a member’s eligible mount is no longer available, mount substitutions are available all substitute mounts must meet the same competition criteria as the original mount. (Tetrathlon competitors do not earn eligibility as a combination)
• For guidelines on the entry process, registration and competitor eligibility, visit the Championships Competition Information page.
