There are five Phases to Quiz: Classroom - Prepared questions are asked in a classroom setting. Each member of the team gets a turn responding to a question. This makes a round. Two teams go head to head in an “ask-off”, before a panel of judges. Once several round are completed the next pair of teams enters. Individual member are scored pooled for a team score. Most questions are certification specific unless the competitor asks to one level above the competitor’s cert for additional points awarded to your team! Barn - Questions are asked by a knowledgeable volunteer in a barn setting. A Round is complete when each member of a team has answered one (1) individual question and the team has answered one team question. Competitors are able to demonstrate a variety of skills according to their certification level. Many questions are hands-on in approach, one example may be putting a bridle back together or blindly identifying equine items by touch; such as a hoof pick, curry comb, snaffle bit. The format of the Barn Phase is creative and exciting. Stations - Stations are another set of questions designed to test a team’s ability to work together. The Stations Phase varies in the number of Rounds depending on availability of props and facilities. A Round is complete when a team has answered all the questions they can in a given time limit. Mega-room - Mega-Room is comprised of tables with horse-related items displayed on them. Mega-Room table props come from the USPC Official Reference List. Items in the Mega-Room Phase are identified by matching them with an answer sheet given to each competitor. Competitors compete individually in Mega-Room and the top three scores will be totaled for a team score. Written Test - The Written Test is comprised of 25 questions. Written Tests are HM rating specific and test up to one level above the competitor’s certification level for additional points awarded to your team!
