World Equestrian Center Points
As a World Equestrian Center exhibitor, you will also be eligible to earn World Equestrian Center points. Our unique system recognizes and rewards exhibitors who compete at our World Equestrian Center horse shows, which take place at our facilities in Ohio and Florida. All World Equestrian Center exhibitors are eligible. Standings will automatically be updated by office staff.
Points accrue for horses and riders that show at World Equestrian Center shows. All show results earn points. We have 32 branded rated hunter/jumper horse shows at our World Equestrian Center facility in Wilmington, Ohio.
Points are tabulated using this point system…if there are 3-9 in the class then 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, if there are 10 or more then 10-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. All classes receive opportunity ring points, regardless of the number of entries. This means that in Walk-Trot to Short Stirrup classes, exhibitors will earn points even if they are the only one in the class.
By participating in the World Equestrian Center points system, exhibitors become eligible for circuit awards based on their horse show results at our venues. The awards are based on points that are calculated at our Spring/Summer and Fall circuits and the Winter in the Midwest circuit.
