1-2 April 2023
After a long over due wait we are excited to hold the Novice Winter Championships once again.
We are delighted to announce that SEIB Insurance Brokers will be sponsoring the BRC Novice Winter Championships and we look forward to welcoming them once again. SEIB specialises in an array of distinct fields, with more than 50 years of of experience in horse insurance.
About the Championships
The dressage and showjumping competitions are open to both teams and individuals, with separate classes across the two disciplines for both our junior and senior members.
In the dressage, two members of your team must ride a prelim test and two members must ride a novice test, with individuals competing in separate arenas.
In the show jumping, both the seniors and juniors compete (on their relevant days) in two rounds – for which the second course may be higher.
Further information on heights, course requirements and horse and rider eligibility can be found in the BRC Handbook.
The provisional schedule for 2023 will be available shortly for download.
All reserves must complete the reserve declaration form, as well as a fit to compete form (jumping classes only). These forms will be available shortly.
Direct Entry Classes
We are pleased to announce that we have added in a direct entry open eligibility warm-up class on both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Entries will be limited and are only available to qualified combinations, on a first come, first served basis (accepted when both payment and entry form received).
Stabling is now open for the 2022 Championship and is available here.
All members are required to have their hats tagged before competing in any BRC qualifier or championship. You can review our up to date guidelines here.
If you are interested in bringing a Trade Stand to this event, please do get in touch and we will be happy to advise.
Intermediate Winter Championships
The Intermediate Winter Championship will feature both dressage and show jumping competitions for our junior and senior members.
Arena Eventing Championships
The Arena Eventing Championships will consist of a course of showjumps immediately followed by a course of cross-country fences.
The Combined challenge is an excellent test of the ability and timing of a horse and rider to negotiate a show jumping course followed by a cross-county course on grass, in an arena.
Dressage to Music Championships
The DTM Championships offers a range of classes for both senior and junior members allowing competitors to ride from prelim up to our unique ‘pick your own’ class, which caters for those wishing to compete at medium and advanced medium level.
Riders are able to compete in a range of competitions at this championship, from dressage to style jumping both individually and as part of a team.
