Membership - AERC Awards Program
Career Programs: Awarded on lifetime achievements.
Regional Best Condition: Honoring the top 5 horses winning Best Condition throughout the season. Points are awarded on a per mile basis, not vet scores. See Section 9.4 of the AERC Rule Book for an explanation of the point system. Best Condition points are not applied toward the overall point system.
Regional Limited Distance Best Condition: Honoring the top 5 horses winning Best Condition throughout the season in 25-35 mile rides. Points are awarded on a per mile basis, not vet scores. Best Condition points are not applied toward the overall point system.
Rider Mileage Championship: Top 2 seniors and 1 junior with the greatest mileage accrued in that season are chosen as that region's mileage champions. A rider may ride up to 2 horses. This achievement is listed on their award jacket.
LD Mileage Award: The regional LD mileage awards are for those riders who have accumulated at least 200 limited distance miles on one horse for seniors (150 limited distance miles for juniors). These awards are for the top seven senior riders and top three junior riders (regardless of ties) in each region who have accumulated the minimum number of limited distance miles on one horse. The actual award will be the same given that year to the regional high point endurance riders receiving weight division awards.
Breed Awards Breed awards are given at the discretion of each individual breed association. Contact your breed association for details.
