2018 Rookie Award Guidelines:

Your ride mileage will begin accumulating towards this award from the date you join AERC.
Award based on one rider and one or two equines.
Equines must be the minimum age as required by AERC rules.
In the event of a tie, the higher number of completions will break the tie; second tie-breaker will be the higher number of longer ride completions (55 miles and up).
Riders with a completion rate of less than 80% at the end of the season will be ineligible for the Rookie Award.
Riders against whom a protest has been filed and upheld by the Protest and Grievance Committee for a failed drug test, equine abuse or poor sportsmanship are not eligible.
Rides done as a non-member (day member) will not count against this award.

Special thanks to David and Tracy Kaden of Specialized Saddles for their sponsorship of this award.
