Throughout the first 30 days of returning to competition (June 1 to June 30), the NHS will monitor the status of Maclay rider's progress and make any necessary adjustments to the qualifying criteria on July 1. The number of points that riders will need to qualify for the 2020 ASPCA Maclay Finals will continue to be monitored throughout the rest of the qualifying period and may be further modified depending on the situation in each state as well as any other unforeseen circumstances.

Additionally, for the 2020 year, when riders meet their point qualifications, they will automatically be qualified for the 2020 ASPCA Maclay Finals. Riders who have met the point qualifications set forth for their respective state will also have the OPTION to participate in a Regional Championship event according to the current rules set forth by the National Horse Show.
