2011 Nunn Finer Than Carolina Series

The 5th Annual Nunn Finer Than Carolina Eventing Series sponsored by Nunn Finer products and Bit of Britain begins its 2011 run in Area3 at Paradise Farm on February 18-20, and concludes in Area2 at The Ark on May 7. The two mid-series events are Southern Pines 1 on March 12-13 and FENCE on April 2-3.

Horse/Rider combinations earn points by placing 1st-5th at the four North and South Carolina Events at Beginner Novice, Novice, Training, and Preliminary. The lowest scoring Junior/Young Rider and Adult at each level (P, T, N, BN) will win special prizes donated by Nunn Finer. Riders competing in hybrid divisions (i.e. PT or TN) are also eligible for series awards for the level at which they rode cross country (i.e. PT riders earn points in the Training division).

All riders are automatically entered at each of the participating events in all divisions (open, rider, horse, junior rider, etc.), but they must place at a minimum of two of the four events to win series awards. If a series division ends in a tie, it will be broken by averaging the riders’ placing final scores, with the lowest average winning.

Thank you to Nunn Finer products and Bit of Britain for their continued support! :D

You don't have to enter all of them! It is possible to win the series by placing very well at only two events. Of course, we hope riders want to do all four! ;)

Just out of curiosity, do they all have to be run at the same level? If one was at Novice and one at Training, that wouldn't really count towards the series, would it?

The horse/riders combinations do have to earn points at the same level (i.e. all BN or T). But with the hybrid levels also counting, riders could do the first one or two at N or T and then move up to TN or PT at the others.
