Computer research by Douglas Tatelman

Points are tallied as follows: Championship: 10 points; Reserve: 7 points; Top Ten: 4 points.
How we tallied the charts: Our statistics were taken from U.S. Nationals, Youth Nationals, and Canadian Nationals dating back to 1963 for the All-Time charts, and back to 2013 for the five-year charts. Open, Amateur, and Junior classes were included in all statistics.

Our research is comprised of the following divisions:
Western Pleasure: Western Pleasure, Western Pleasure Junior Horse, and related futurities/maturities. Working Western: Reining, Reined Cow Horse, Working Cow Horse, Cutting, Herd Work, Trail, and related futurities/maturities.
