The top 20 qualifying contestants from each state will enter the World Finals with 20 to 1 points respectively depending on how they ranked within their home state. Points they earn in the Western Heritage Class at the World Finals will be added to the points they enter with to determine the 3 and below and 4 and above World Champions. #3 and below riders will only be eligible to earn points in the #3 and below class but can ride in the All Levels if they wish. Saddles and prizes through 10th place in each will be awarded as well. The Top 20 from each division, in each state will be eligible for year-end awards. In the event that the contestant’s rating is changed, his/her points will be carried with him/her to the next division unless moving those points improves the contestants standing in the points race. In this case only the points that will put the contestant in the same standing as the division prior will be carried over. Example: A Novice has 50 points, is in Fourth place and is moved to the Amateur division. The Fourth-place Amateur has 30 points. In this case, the Novice being moved can only transfer 30 of his/her 50 points to the Amateur division, tying with the Fourth place Amateur. However, every contestant that graduates in any rating category is automatically qualified for the Finals in the division they graduate to with a minimum of 20 points. A contestant that places in the top 10 in 2 rating categories will accept the highest award or if equal, then the award from the highest rating. If they are tied with a rating category & the Masters class, they will accept the award where they earned the most points.
