AREA/REGIONAL DRESSAGE, EVENTING AND SHOW JUMPING 2017
To all Burghley Members, please find below details of this year's Area and Regional Competitions. Areas and Regionals are held once a year and The Burghley have a great record in these competitions. As a branch we like to send as many of our members as possible to these competitions as long as they meet the criteria both The Pony Club and the branch set.
All members must have renewed their membership by February 28th 2017. (New members
to Pony Club must have joined by March 31st 2017.) All members must have attended
three rallies since July 1st 2016 -
Members who have transferred to The Burghley Branch from another branch within the last 14 months may compete at the Areas but only as an individual and not in teams. This does not apply to Regionals where they may be selected for teams.
The Burghley Branch welcome interest for competing at Area/Regionals from all our members and we will be sending teams and individuals in Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping. We also participate in Tetrathlon, but please contact Laura Leicester directly for details of this discipline.
Show Jumping -
(For Open, qualification may be made for Championships 2017 in three ways, either
direct qualification at Area competition, completion of 2 PC Open Events or completion
of 4 BE Novice Events -
All Regionals competitions qualify for The Regional Final at Keysoe on September 9th and 10th 2017. (Regionals this year have both team and individual qualifiers.) All other classes qualify for The Pony Club Championships to be held at Chomondeley Castle, Cheshire running from August 18th to August 22nd 2017.
Unfortunately there are quite a few rules and regulations on what classes you can do across the disciplines but if you have any questions just email me. There are no age limits at any level.
PLEASE EMAIL ME AT BY MONDAY MAY 22nd STATING WHICH CLASSES IN WHICH DISCIPLINE YOU WISH TO BE CONSIDERED FOR. PLEASE DO NOT WORRY IF YOU HAVE NOT FULFILLED ALL THE ENTRY CRITERIA BY THAT DATE AS THAT CAN BE DONE AFTERWARDS. Don't be shy in coming forwards, Areas and Regionals are great fun and a wonderful experience. For some it can be valuable experience at competing at such a level for later years. Applications will not necessarily guarantee an Area or Regional entry.
