Polly Limond Earns Silver Lifetime Rider Medal

California member and 2019 WE United President Polly Limond recently logged the final scores needed to earn her Lifetime Silver Rider Medal in Working Equitation.

To earn a Silver Medal, riders must earn eight qualifying scores under a variety of judges at the Intermediate level. More specifically, they must meet the following qualifications:

SILVER MEDALIST RIDERS – INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

  • Must have three (3) Dressage scores at the Intermediate level of 62% or higher from at least (3) three different rides and two (2) different WE United “r,” “R,” or “S” judges.
  • Must have three (3) Ease of Handling scores at the Intermediate level of 62% or higher from at least two (2) different WE United “r,” “R,” or “S” judges.
  • In addition to the above six scores, must have one (1) Dressage score and one (1) Ease of Handling score at the Intermediate level of 65% or higher for a total of eight eligible scores.
  • Beginning in the 2018 Competition Year, a minimum of 2 Dressage and 2 Ease of Handling Scores of 62% or higher must be earned while competing in Intermediate B. The remaining scores needed may be earned in either Intermediate A or Intermediate B.
  • Scores for all of the above are only eligible if the rider successfully completed all trials in the competition in which the score was earned.
