I found this on a 2011 prizelist.
NEW USDF Policy: No Awards for Qualifying Rides.
Feb. 7, 2011, 08:41 AM
That change was from years ago when the qualifying rides were held in a separate division at most shows than the non-qualifying rides. When they were combined there was confusion as to why the Q rides were no longer being places as a separate division. Now all of the Q rides are placed where they fall in their respective divisions or classes but there are no special awards for just Q rides.
Let me know if that doesn't make things clearer :)

Q and non-Q rides are combined to a single class for awards;)
