All Around Award
The All Around Award is given to one 4H horse and pony member of any age or size that has the highest cumulative point total for all Tippecanoe Horse and Pony Open and Contesting shows and during fair week (first year member classes and September shows will not count towards All Around) . If showing more than one horse, you will need to notify us which horse/pony you want your points used towards that day. To be eligible for this award, the 4H member must have attended 3 meetings. In case of a tie, then it goes based on who has the most first places; if that is still a tie then it goes to who has the most 2nd places, and so forth. Points are calculated the same way the points are for the Versatility Buckle (See Below). Results and points from each show will be posted to the website after each show. Members have 30 days after results are posted to protest any results or points. Thirty days after posting, results will become official and no changes will be made to the points associated with that show. **Disclaimer – Other awards may be awarded for division placings. **
