2021 MCTA Year End Awards -
Standings Posted

Final Standings:
Rider Awards
Horse Awards

For questions, contact JoAnne at

Have you placed at a horse trials competition this year?  If so, you might qualify for one of the many awards that MCTA offers.  Review the “Submission Guidelines” below for qualification details.

Just a reminder, all riders are eligible for awards in one rider division and all horses are eligible for awards in one horse division, even if they had points in several divisions (excluding the special trophies for Mare of the Year and Homebred Horse).  We first try the division they would place highest in.  If a rider or horse has won a division twice, they are no longer eligible for that division.  Ties for high score awards are broken where possible by highest level, then by highest placing.

DEADLINE: December 1, 2021


  • You must be a current MCTA member
  • You must have completed a minimum of eight volunteer hours in the award year, at least four of which must be at MCTA’s own activities while the rest may be from 3-phase horse trials organized by individual MCTA members.
