RoR Regional Leagues
The RoR Regional Leagues in Dressage, Showjumping, Arena Eventing and Combined Training continue in 2017, following a successful first year in 2015 and our inaugural Regional League Finals held at the RoR National Championship Show at Aintree in August 2016.
The Regional Leagues are running in 2017 at participating venues across the country.
The aim of this national initiative is to encourage riders at every level to take part in local competitions with their former racehorses with the chance to earn points in Dressage, Showjumping, Combined Training and Arena Eventing at both affiliated and unaffiliated competitions as well as giving the top ten in each RoR region, in affiliated and unaffiliated, the opportunity to qualify for the RoR National Championship Show in 2018.
All competitors returning Performance Score sheets are eligible to compete at the South East Region Championship Show in September 2017.
To take part you must register for the league by completing and returning the RoR Regional League Registration Form. Once registered you will then be sent back the RoR Regional League Performance Sheets, together with Information for Competitors. Note: Your region will be allocated as per your registered RoR address. You will be sent a list of Participating Venues.
The final results for the RoR Regional Leagues will be announced early in 2018 but interim tables will be published every three months. The final results for 2016 are on the attachment below.
There is a prize for the highest point scorer in affiliated and the same for unaffiliated. In 2017, rosettes will be awarded to 10th place in each region, for affiliated and unaffiliated. The top ten in each region in affiliated and unaffiliated, qualify for the RoR Regional League Finals in 2018.
