Calling all members – The Area 9 Dressage qualifier is on July 17th at Rabson Manor

There are classes for Senior and Juniors, Teams or Individuals, Prelim to Adv Med, plus pairs and Riding Tests so something for everyone.

 New for 2016 This is not just a qualifier for Lincoln – there’s now a separate Prelim team and RT Championships at Hartbury on August 20th for BRC areas in the South West and South Wales. You need to decide up front if you want to be considered for Lincoln (September 10th to 11th), but this does not stop you going to Hartbury if you do not qualify.

As always, BRC rules apply to both you and your horse so please let me know if you have any (and how many) BD points you have and what BD group rider you are. For example to do a prelim, a horse cannot have any BD points, To do Novice <124 and elem <199.

Your horses’ vaccinations must be up to date and Emma Dunkley will also need a copy of its’ passport to double check this.

We endeavor to give everyone a chance to ride for the cub, but to ensure that we put the right people together Marie Kent, our Team trainer must have seen you and your horse in a clinic or at a private lesson. See the website for clinics and her contact details.
