Schedules soon, but do remember that prelim entries close with head office 21 days prior to each event.

New rules mean that horses may now take part at different levels – maximum of two + must be consecutive heights (so 80 & 90 cm = yes, 80 & 100 = no). Eligibility criteria must be met for each section entered, Those competing in the 70cm section cannot compete at another level. Competition  format has changed so that second round is now run as a two phase competition with the JO included in the course. This means that horses taking part in more than one section aren’t over jumped. Format at championships remains over two rounds and separate  jump offs.
