Don't forget, the following requirements apply to all PNER awards: Awards are available to members of Pacific Northwest Endurance Rides, Inc. (PNER) and horses ridden by PNER members. PNER membership is required and is not retroactive.  Events ridden prior to the processing of an individual’s membership are not counted toward PNER awards in the applicable ride season. The awards cycle covers the PNER ride season (January 1 through December 31 annually). Rides sanctioned through organizations recognized by PNER and located in the PNER region are considered in award determination, unless otherwise specified in the award description. Unless otherwise specified in the award description, a minimum of three sanctioned events or 150 or more miles during the applicable PNER ride season must be successfully completed by the rider, horse, rider and horse team, or group of riders (e.g., family, couple, team).  This requirement applies to the distances covered by the specific award.  For example, if the award description specifies only endurance distances are recognized for an award and the individual completed one 100-mile event and one 50-mile event, then the award recipient would have met the requirement by having completed 150 endurance miles although not having completed three endurance events. If the requirement is not met, the award or full complement of placings will not be presented.  Individual award descriptions cover whether the minimum completion requirement applies. Some awards require nomination.  Members must submit the requested materials to the Awards Coordinator or appropriate individual on or before the nomination due date.  Failure to do so by the submittal deadline will result in the individual being ineligible to receive the award. Rider age is determined as of January 1 of each year and covers the full PNER ride season.  Age classifications for award recognition purposes are defined below and in some cases, a rider may qualify for multiple categories (e.g., a Senior Rider could also qualify for Golden Years or a Senior Rider could qualify as a Young Rider). Junior Rider – A rider under age 16. Young Rider – A rider age 16 to 21 (not yet age 22). Senior Rider – A rider age 16 or older. Golden Years – A rider age 65 and older.
