SCORING SYSTEM

ASHA scoring is designed to be positive and straight forward, always encouraging growth and improvement.

The rules give a horse credit for what they accomplish, rather than a disqualification with no score.

Horse and riders progress is tested through competition and positive feedback from the score sheets and scoring system.

Points will be awarded to each horse competing.
