CMSA offers a horse tracking card as a way for horses to earn points no matter who the rider is. Registering a horse in the CMSA horse tracking program is open to all breeds and grade horses, and year end prizes are given based on breed (contact the CMSA office for current year end prize information).
The Horse Tracking System will track the following: multiple riders, points, raw times, and events. To access your Horse Tracking System records you simply log-on to the member's page at cmsaevents.com. There you will find a list of the horses associated with that owner and a brief history. To view full history, click on the horses name to view a more detailed report. This will not only show how many points the horse has earned, but who the rider was. This is useful for trainers and breeders to show what a horse has accomplished and also what CMSA levels a horse has run at. Once the tracking card has been purchased, it will remain current and will not require a renewal. Reprinted cards will require a $15.00 printing fee. NOTE: It is the responsibility of the contestant to physically take the tracking card to the check in station for every shoot the horse is to be tracked. At a CMSA event you can request a report, "Who's in horse tracking" to ensure your information has been entered. We are unable to enter the tracking after the event has run.
Each rider who rides the horse at an event will earn CMSA horse tracking points at a 1x the point basis. This is based on the raw time of the horse compared to the raw times of all other horses at the event. The horse will earn 1 point for each horse he places above.
It is the responsibility of the member to maintain their current status with the various breed registry organizations. Horses being tracked shall compete in all stages of the event entered. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of all points and tracking for the entire season.
The Horse tracking card may be purchased on the CMSAGear.com website, it is a lifetime card and does not require renewal. If the horse being tracked is sold, there is a $35 transfer fee to transfer the ownership/records to the new owner.
