Wellington, FL - March 6, 2006 - With the final event, the $150,000 US
Open Jumper Championship, presented by CN, CSIO-5*, upcoming on Sunday,
here are the latest standings for the $200,000 FTI Rider Challenge at
the 2006 Winter Equestrian Festival. The standings include the $25,000
WEF Challenge Cup, Round VII and the $25,000 CN Jumper Classic held on
FTI Consulting Inc. and Stadium Jumping, Inc. have collaborated for the
$200,000 FTI Rider Challenge, a six week challenge for the top riders in
the world. The FTI Rider Challenge is a rider bonus pool for $200,000 in
which the riders receive points based on the number of riders in the
seven Thursday and seven Sunday Grand Prix events that are all part of
WEF in Wellington. During the Thursday Grand Prix events, riders must
declare the horse with which they would like to be scored. During the
Sunday Grand Prix events, the riders are only allowed to ride one horse,
which will accumulate points based on their performance.
First place in a grand prix will be awarded one additional point more
than the number of riders in that particular competition. Second place
will be awarded two points less than the number of riders, and third
place will be awarded three points less than the number of riders. Each
placing will subsequently be given a score based on this formula and the
order in which they finish the competition.
In the event of a tie for the final results, the rider that has won the
most events will take the purse. The rider with the most points
accumulated at the end of WEF in Wellington will be awarded $100,000.
Second place will be given $50,000, third place will receive $30,000,
and $20,000 will be given to fourth place.
