The GGT Footing Grand Prix Series is designed to provide an opportunity for riders to compete at the 1.40 m level for year-end awards and prizes. Riders may enter as many horses as they wish, but will only receive credit towards year-end awards on the first horse they ride in each class. Horses must be declared before 5 pm the day preceding the class.

Year-end awards are based on prize money won throughout the current year’s GGT Footing Grand Prix Series. Money won in the GGT Footing Grand Prix Series Final at the Del Mar International Horse Show will be doubled for pointing toward the rider’s year-end total.
