USPC CHAMPIONSHIPS: This rally is a qualifier for USPC Championships.  It is our Region’s goal to continue our tradition of sending a large contingent of Quiz competitors to Championships. Requirements for qualifying are detailed in the USPC Handbook and Rules for Quiz Competition and the most recent Newsletter. The competitor, parents, and the DC/CA are expected to carefully read the qualifying guidelines and be thoroughly familiar with the rules and qualifying criteria for the discipline.

PHASES OF COMPETITION:

  • Classroom: Oral questions are asked in a classroom setting. Classroom settings are made up of individual rounds. A round is complete when each member of a team has answered one individual question.
  • Barn: Oral questions are asked in a barn setting. Many questions are hands-on in approach. Appropriate barn footwear must be worn at all times.  The Barn phase may be held outdoors this year so please be prepared for any weather conditions.
  • Stations: All questions are answered as a team in a problem-solving manner. A round is complete when a team has answered all the questions they can in a given time limit.
  • Mega-Room: Comprised of tables with horse-related items displayed on them. All items in the Mega-Room are identified by matching them with an answer sheet given to each competitor. The Mega-Room will be done individually with a given time limit.
  • Written Test: This is rating specific and tests up to one level above the competitor’s rated level.
