RIHA News


COVID-19 and RIHA:

Updated August 10, 2020:

From the RIEC:

It is with profound sadness that the Rhode Island Equitation Committee must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Rhode Island Championships. The RIEC worked extremely hard to get the RI Finals to run, including seeking out other venues, even out-of-state. The travel bans and uncertainty of COVID have made it too difficult to try to comply and keep everyone safe. We look forward to celebrating what would have been the 40th anniversary of the Rhode Island Finals next year and showcasing the RI Masters class in 2021. For those riders who qualified this year (2020), the RIEC is working with the RIHA board to come to a consensus for what to do for 2021, and we hope to make that announcement soon. Stay current on the RIHA and RI Finals websites.

Updated August 13, 2020:

It has been decided, by the RIHA and RIEC, that RI Finals qualifying points for 2020 are will transfer over to 2021 points, when the exhibitor shows at one (or more) 2021 Rhode Island affiliated shows.

  • Any points earned in 2020 will transfer over to 2021 once the point earner shows in a 2021 RI rated show
  • Juniors in their last year, will have their points moved to the Adults
  • Junior Minis in their lat year, will have their points moved to the Adult Minis
  • Moving up from any 2'6" RI final to any 3' RI final will require re-qualifying
