The second round is open to any horse/rider combination within 7 points of the leader.

Points from qualifying classes will be awarded as the number in the class plus two (2). The second place horse receives points equal to the number of horses in the class, and so on. For example, if there are 25 horses, the first place horse receives 27 points, second place receives 25 points, and third place receives 24, and so on. The order of go will be in reverse order of points accumulated from the qualifiers.
