:new:2017/05/06 Updated: Small change made to show entry and training points, didn't realize training images were worth more, oops. So sorry for all the changes O_O

2017/05/05 Updated: Shows entered at HARPG-ShowCircuit now gain you Eventing Points.

2017/04/21 Updated: An "Other" category has been added, all points have been made into whole integers and some values have been adjusted slightly, points are now given for shading on training images, show points have been revisited and revised, level point amounts remain the same for the time being. Horses currently registered with the group may retain their current point totals and status, but will need to use this updated system for future level changes.

There will be a separate folder made up for the different levels. There may be special reference sheets in the future, but that depends on if you guys want them or not. Foals will remain in the 'foal' folder until they get an adult reference. To have your horse move into another folder, please see the Registration and Level Change journal.

We ask that you please have all image links and points neatly organized either in the description on the horse's reference image, or in a journal or sta.sh clearly linked in the description on the horse's reference. The horse's point total and level should be displayed on the horse's profile, even if the links are kept in a separate journal.

Art Rules

Arrow left Art using pre-made lineart cannot be counted for points, all art must be original*
Arrow left Tracing and referencing are okay but all references must be credited**
Arrow left Art made by others does count for points, regardless of if it is a gift, commission, etc.***
Arrow left Show and Training images must be created for one of the following disciplines to count:
English | Dressage, Show Jumping, Cross-Country
Western | Reining, Roping, Barrel Racing 
Arrow left Photo and pre-made backgrounds do not count for extra points

*Exception - one reference image made with lineart may be counted towards points
**Please always provide a link to the original stock and/or stock provider. If you do not use a reference image or you use your own resources, please state as much. Any deviations submitted without reference credit in the Artist's Comments will be rejected
***At least 60% of a horse's points must be collected through art made by the owner for it to move up a level (ex. to reach Experienced, at least 60 points need to be from art made by you or previous owners and not by others as gifts, commissions, etc.)

Reference Images

This is the only section that allows lineart; however only one lineart reference will be accepted for points, all others must be original art to count.

Current Reference: 2 pts
Old References (up to 3, including foal ref): 1 pts

Training Images 


Full body horse: 4 pts
1/2 or partial body horse: 2 pts
> Handler visible: +2 pts
> Background: +1 pt
> Shading: +1pt 
BG must have some level of detail, not just a random splotch of colour or green and blue scribbles

Shows

Points are awarded for the main show image(s) ONLY. "Extra" images drawn for bonuses at the show will fall under either 'Training' or 'Other', depending on the nature of the image.

Show Type Entered:

Mini Show: 3 pts
Full (Effort) Show: 5 pts
:new:HARPG-ShowCircuit Weekly Shows**: 2 pts
Sanctioned Shows: +3pts extra (sanctioned mini show = 6 pts; sanctioned effort show = 8 pts)*
> 3DE entries that show all three phases: x3 (9 pts for a mini show and 15 pts for an effort show)
> Handler visible: +2 pts
> Simple background: +1 pt
> Detailed background: +2 pts
> Shading: +1pt 
"simple BG" = 2 or 3 colours, low detail (ex. green grass, blue sky, simple fence)
"detailed BG" = 3+ colours, detail is obvious in background (ex. wood textures on fencing, grass texture, sand textures, clouds, trees, anything that makes the background more than just a simple 'blue is sky, green is grass', if you put actual effort into it you can argue it as detailed)

*Sanctioned shows may differ from sponsored shows, please pay attention if a show is sponsored or run by the group as we may be offering further additional group points for members who enter!
:new:**SC weekly shows require no art, all you need to link is the results doc. You gain points on each class the horse entered from that week (if your horse entered 3DE, Dressage and SJ in Week 0022, he gains 6pts for that week). These shows do not count towards required placings or show entries for leveling, so you must still enter art shows to level up. Placings in these shows do not count for points (it just adds up too quickly)


Placings:    

First Place: 5 pts
Second Place: 3 pts
Third Place: 2 pts
Grand Champion: 5 pts
Reserve Champion: 4 pts
Other Titles (ie. 'Judge's Favourite'): 3 pts

Please note: If you enter several classes in a single show, each image will receive the full points. So if you enter dressage, 3DE, and show jumping at a given effort show, each image will earn the points for an effort show plus whatever points may be earned for placings. 


Other

Any art that does not fall under the above categories, meaning recreational images,breeding images, training or showing for other disciplines, 'extra' images for shows etc. will go here

Fullbody horse: 2pts
Partial body or headshot: 1pt
> Handler visible: +1pt


Lineage + Offspring

Horses MUST be horses who exist in the HARPG universe to count here, 'real life' pedigrees do not count. Please link back to the references of all horses in lineage.
 
Every HARPG horse in lineage: 1 pt
Any horse in lineage that has reached Grand Prix or higher: 2 pts
Direct offspring: 1 pt



If you have any questions about how to add up your horse's points or what an image may count as, please do not hesitate to ask via comment or note!
