2020 Leaderboard

WE United recognizes our members’ achievement throughout the year, tracking performance on our Leaderboard, which displays a cumulative record of the Top Ten National horse/rider pairs, horses, and U.S., International, and Youth riders and the Top Ten Regional horse/rider pairs at all competition levels (Children’s through Masters) competing at all licensed B-rated, A-rated, and championship shows with a judge accredited by WE United.

On this page, we list the current standings for both National and Regional Top Ten placings. We update this page each time we receive official competition results and provide a link to the results from each WE United competition posted at the bottom of this page, providing a transparent process by which competitors and event organizers can verify placings and point tabulations. For official results from shows licensed only by other organizations, please contact those organizations.

The formula used to calculate points is described at the bottom of this page.

*If your internet connection is slow, the table below with the running total of points earned throughout the competition year might take a while to load (it’s big!). Click on the tabs at the bottom of the table to check standings in the different levels, and scroll to the right to see the shows where the points were earned. Riders: please double-check throughout the year to be sure your points have been added! If you see any errors, please email us at WorkingEquitationUnited@gmail.com to let us know so we can verify the accuracy of results. (thank you!).


Note: Not all organizations share official show results, so members who participate in shows licensed by organizations other than WE United are reminded to submit their show results to us directly so we can add their points to the Leaderboard. As long as a show is licensed and uses a judge recognized by WE United, our members’ points can count for our Regional and National Year-End Awards.

Why WE United Lists Amateur and Open Riders Together on our Leaderboards
For the purpose of WE United Year-End Awards, all riders are classified together (in other words, we do not differentiate between Amateur and Open riders for our Year-End awards). The reasons for this are manifold, not least of which is that we have analyzed the results of every licensed WE Competition since 2013 and have continually found that Amateur riders are not at a competitive disadvantage when their scores are lined up against those competing as Open riders. In fact, since 2013, Amateur riders competing in Working Equitation in the United States have consistently out-scored Open riders. Thus, in the interest of integrity and honest competition, we group all adult riders together for both Regional and National Awards Programs, while providing separate recognition for our Junior and International members.

* 2020 Competition Season Points accrue from December 1, 2019 – November 30, 2020.

Points for the Leaderboard for the 2020 competition season are based on performance at the following shows:

Updated: October 29, 2020


IMPORTANT NOTE (effective December 1, 2019): 

On June 18, 2019, the WE United Board of Directors adopted the following criteria for awarding points, to go into effect at the start of the 2020 competition season:

Step 1:

Dressage and EOH trials will be averaged together and awarded points as described in the rules for tracking points for mandatory advancement (see the following criteria).

57.500% thru 59.999% = 1 point

60.000% thru 62.499% = 2 points

62.500% thru 64.999% = 3 points

65.000% thru 67.499% = 4 points

67.500% thru 69.999% = 6 points

70.000% and above = 7 points

Step 2:

For levels where the Speed trial is offered, the top 5 horse/rider pairs (regardless of # of entries) will also earn points for completing the Speed trial without disqualifying (see the following criteria):

1st place – 2.5 points

2nd place – 2 points

3rd place – 1.5 points

4th place – 1 point

5th place – 0.5 points

A disqualification in Dressage and/or EOH will not impact points earned for successfully completing the Speed trial.

Using these criteria, horse/rider pairs will accrue a maximum of 9.5 points per competition.

The intention of this change is to help ensure that members who live in areas of the country where competitions have fewer entries are not at a disadvantage when it comes to National standings.

This change went into effect on December 1, 2019.
