How to enter

To enter, simply speak to your BHS Approved Centre, if they are hosting a qualifying event you will be able to enter directly through them. If you ride at a BHS Approved Centre that doesn’t host a qualifying event, speak to your BHS Approved Centre to see if it’s possible to arrange horse hire and transport for you.

General Information

In classes 1, 2 and 3 there are three phases with a collective overall score deciding the winners. The first phase is the dressage test, usually followed by the stable management section (this can be taken before the dressage test if preferred) and the last phase is the showjumping section. Classes 4 and 5 are dressage only.
