BRC are delighted to have NAF as title sponsor again this year for the National Championships.
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. We also have a couple of direct entry dressage classes which do not require any qualification (please see below). For eligibility of horse and rider, and to see what a combination is eligible to compete in, please see the current BRC Handbook.
The Championships include a wide range of dressage classes ranging from prelim right the way up to Advanced Medium. Intro classes have been added to this years competition for both senior and juniors.
The riding test is similar to a dressage test, but marks are awarded according to the rider’s performance (effectiveness and presentation of the test), and the horse’s paces are not considered. This competition can be ridden as an individual or as part of a team; For senior teams, two members ride the Prelim RT and the other two ride the Novice RT. Junior team members all ride Prelim RT.
The 70cm, 80cm and 90cm are all split in to juniors and seniors with the 100cm and 110cm being mixed classes.
Style jumping is similar to show jumping, but marks are based on the rider’s performance and effectiveness rather than the horse's. There is a 75cm class and an 85cm class for this competition and is split into juniors and seniors. Individuals and teams may compete in this class; teams must have two riders ride at 75cm and two ride at 85cm.
Direct entry classes are ones which do not require any qualification and may be added nearer the event. Please see this page for updates.

British Riding Clubs have once again taken out abandonment insurance for the championships that have a greater likelihood of being subject to weather related abandonment. These championships are: the Arena Eventing, the National Horse Trials and the National Championships. This insurance covers these events in the case of abandonment due to adverse weather conditions. Should any of these three events be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, and the insurance policy conditions are satisfied, then all championship entry fees and stable booking fees will be refunded in full. This excludes all pre-entry fees for the championship, and area entry fees for the associated qualifiers. For all other BRC events, the refund policy as detailed in the current BRC Handbook will stand.
