The Power 4* Mares League, sponsored by John F Hunt Power and The Gemini Stud, has been introduced in 2020 to give top mares competing at the highest levels recognition for their success. Points won by mares at CCI4*-S and CCI4*-L will accrue throughout the season before the champion is crowned following the last event of the year.
About the League
The League uses the BE points system, with points being accrued at 4* level events. The top three placed mares in the Power 4* Mares League at the end of the season will receive generous prizes consisting of vouchers towards coverings by Gemini Stud Stallions.
- The league is open to all mares competing in 4* events.
- Mares competing at 5* are still eligible for this league but only their points accrued at 4* will count towards this league.
