The Good Horsemanship Award was trialled in the CEI 2* ride at Royal Windsor Endurance last weekend. This was the first time the award had been trialled at a large FEI competition with full electronic timing.
The results were:
1st: Nicolas Garcia Maria/As Flor Del Pago (ESP)
2nd: Harry Ingram/Bronze Nahdir (GBR)
3rd: Taher Tarek/Taori R (KSA)
The award is designed to complement the existing competition structure and reward good horsemanship over the course of the competition. At each vetgate and at the finish, presentation times were scored as 20 points minus the presentation time. A 20 point bonus was given for each Cardiac Recovery Index (CRI) result where the second pulse was lower than the first. Scores were also awarded for the other veterinary criteria (gut sounds, gait and dehydration) up to a maximum of 15 points at each vetgate and at the final vetting.
The trials to date have been particularly useful in working out an effective way for the data to be collected and analysed. A further trial will take place at the first Euston Park after which the final proposal will be put before the Board of Endurance GB. This award is just one element of the 'British Protocol' which will be announced in due course.
