As we roll into year four of the NARG Top 25, a list of key aspects is emerging from our efforts. As a group dedicated to high performance show jumping, we see the path for North America through those eyes, and have ceased to try and see it any other way…

We saw some interesting trends and results in this year’s rankings once again. For the first time we added bonus points for offering FEI classes (10 points) and prize money at $500,000 or above (10 points).

An important aspect to top events, the bonus points did affect the rankings to a degree – but the aspects of superb footing, stabling, course design and overall venue are still the most significant factors.
