USA Riders - 2005 Pan American Championship - Criteria to Compete Abroad



2005 Pan American Endurance Championship
Pinamar, Argentina,
April 2, 2005

The 2005 Pan American Endurance Championship will be held in Pinamar, Argentina on April 2, 2005. As notification of this event was received relatively late and because there will be little or no funding available from USEF, the Endurance High Performance Committee has decided to modify the existing Criteria to Compete Abroad in order to select a team to represent the United States at the 2005 PAC. The following is a draft only. When the USEF Executive Committee has approved this criteria, it will be distributed by mail and will be available on the USEF website. The final version may be differ slight in the details but not in substance.

In order to nominate, a rider must meet the following eligibility requirements no later than January 1, 2005:

1. Be a US citizen or in compliance with FEI Article 123.
2. Be a current member of AERC.
3. Be a current member of AERC International.
4. Be a current member of USEF.
5. Have completed a minimum of 500 verifiable lifetime AERC or equivalent miles in endurance competitions at distances of 50 or more miles.
6. Have completed at least two, 100 mile, one day rides.

Selection of the team will be based on the following precedence:

First Preference: Members of the existing National Team who are willing to take their own horse. Traveling Squad members to be ranked in order of completion; non-Traveling Squad members to be ranked by the USEF Endurance Credentials Committee.

Second Preference: The top 10 finishers from the most recent Pan American Endurance Championship who are willing to take their own horses ranked by order of finish.

Third Preference: Any rider who meets the eligibility requirements who is willing to take their own horse, ranked by the USEF Endurance Credentials Committee.

Fourth Preference: Any rider who meets the eligibility requirements who wishes to lease a horse, ranked by the USEF Endurance Credentials Committee.

All riders and horses must have earned an FEI Certificate of Capability for this event (See FEI website: www.horsesport.org). The USEF Endurance Credentials Committee may consult with the existing USEF National Selection Committee when determining their rankings and determinations.
