Hi Just a slight amendment to the published dates for the winter dressage and jumping.
Richmond had double booked so can no longer offer us 2nd November, so have offered us the 1st November instead.
There will be a new dressage comp this winter as announced by Mary and in Rider magazine. This is intermediate dressage and has teams of 1 prelim, 2 novice and 1 elementary tests there will also be individuals.
Riders/horses will be able to compete in both competitions as long as they fulfill the restrictions laid out in the rules for both competitions. see attachment
Because of this we are going to try and run both competitions on the same day, but as a result there will be no warm up tests. I hope that agreeable to most people.
So to recap ….
There are 2 competitions both have Junior and Senior sections.
Comp 1 Novice Winter dressage Qualifier for Hartpury.
2 prelim (P18) and 2 Novice tests (N24)per team and is TEAM ONLY. (restrictions on Prelim riders)
Clubs will be restricted to 2 Senior teams and 2 Junior teams.
Comp 2 Intermediate Winter Dressage Qualifier for Bury Farm
1 Prelim (P13) 2 Novice tests (N28 & N34) and Elementary test (E42)
As you can enter this as an individual the limit is for max of 8 riders but also a max of 2 riders per test for Junior and Seniors (i.e 8 Juniors plus 8 Seniors.)
I hope that is clear I can clarify if required.
Please remember riders/horses can compete in both competitions as team members, but there may be a long gap between rides.
Entry fees are £10 ind and £40 team
Entry form will be sent out presently.
PLUS one more reminder of Qualifier and Champs dates.
Dressage Qualifier 1st November Richmond
Novice Champs Hartpury 4-5th April
Intermediate Champs Bury Farm 2-3rd May
Jumping Qualifier 31st Jan-1st Feb
There will also be an intermediate jumping and so Bishop has been booked for the whole weekend 31st Jan to 1st Feb.
One day will be Seniors novice only, the other will be intermediate seniors and junior novice and junior intermediate.
This way we only need to build the one course.
The jumping is teams only
