8206.2 Riders in Hunt Seat Zones 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 11 qualify for Regional Finals by accumulating a minimum of eighteen (18) points in that class during the competition year.
8504.3 The remaining rider positions for National Finals will be proportionately divided among the Zones based upon the number of members in each Zone as determined by IEA membership on December 31st of each year. Calculations will be based on total individual rider memberships, and they will be split into calculations for middle school total members and upper school total members. These percentages will then be applied to all individual class allotments and to all team class allotments at Nationals. In the case of any allotted spots that can not be awarded by mathematical percentages, any unused allotments will be put into a random draw and all zones that represent 10% or more of the membership in that category will be eligible to potentially draw the lottery-allotted spot. The draw will be done by the Executive Director and supervised by the National Steward. IEA will promptly notify the Zone Administrator at the beginning of each calendar year of the number of additional rider members per class a Zone may send to National Finals.
