NAF Five Star BRC Virtual Dressage

Just to let you know, BRC are also  running a virtual dressage competition, in addition to our own ECRC competition.  Full details below  (please note individual fee  £15 and team fee £39):

BRC are delighted to be working with Zvari Marketing & Excel Shows Team to bring you the BRC Exclusive Virtual Dressage Competition kindly sponsored by NAF.

Zvari & Excel have partnered with BRC to produce a fun but practical competition format for riding club teams and individuals, that will take place on 26 -28 June 2020 (footage to be sent in sooner)! With three individual classes including freestyle to music and two team competitions, there is certainly something for everyone. The series of programmes are scheduled to run across the BRC social platforms over the three days. With limited entries available why not check out the attached schedule for the full details and to make your entry.

Entries open Wednesday 20 May and are strictly on a first-come-first-served basis. Entries are limited.

In light of the current strains on the NHS and Equine Charities, through this event we are pleased to be supporting NHS Charities Together and the British Horse Society. The BHS continues to support approved riding centres and their incredible horses during this crisis. Aside from the main competition there is a separate competition with prizes for the clubs who fund raise the largest amount of money for our two chosen charities. Each club with representatives in the competition will be assigned their own club justgiving page as well as having access to the attached sponsorship form for your use.

Please note: In the unlikely event of this competition being cancelled (i.e. government restrictions dramatically changing) all entries will be refunded in full within 5 working days of notification of cancellation.

We look forward to welcoming you to this virtual event!

ECRC Lockdown Virtual Dressage Competition –

Exciting news!  Below is the schedule for our ECRC Lockdown Dressage Competition.  All you have to do is find a patch of grass and mark out a bit of an arena (obviously even better if you have your own real one) – get someone to stand at C and hold your phone – and then persuade your horse that this is serious and they should behave well enough to perform a dressage test.  Oh, and you have to find your dressage clothes and hope that they still fit well enough for you to wear them for five mins while you do the test.  No charge for members (non members £3).  Full details on the schedule below.  Closing date 1st May.  Best of luck everyone!
