Do you get out and about competing with your ex racehorse in the South East? How would you like to earn points towards an RoR South East Area league and qualification for the RoR South East Area Championship Show whilst competing at your normal unaffiliated Dressage, Show Jumping and Combined Training competitions? If so this league is for you.
When you register for the league via email at email@example.com you will be sent out your league performance sheet, which you will fill out and get signed by the competition secretary at the venues you are at, and return every 2 months - on return of the completed sheet, a new league performance sheet will be sent out to you.
Once registered you can then score points towards the RoR South East Area League, which will run from 1st January 2014 to 31st August 2014 at participating venues (Listed below but more venues are going to be added, so keep checking here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information).
The scale of points that can be awarded are wide to give everyone a chance to achieve points - Dressage points start at 55% with points scaling upwards and as long as you don't get eliminated jumping SJ or during the jumping phase of combined training competitions you will score a point, with points again scaling upwards towards 1st place. (full points information will be supplied with the League performance sheet).
We are hoping that we will be able to add more disciplines to this league as we get started with it.

Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing, today announced an independent led review of its strategy and policy.
Chaired by Jonny McIrvine, former Chief Executive of the International League for the Protection of Horses (now known as World Horse Welfare), the review will make recommendations for the charity’s future strategy and policy as well as proposing clear guidelines for funding and transparency regarding the allocation of funding. The review has the support of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Weatherbys, with funding assistance from the Racing Foundation.
An integral part of the review will be a statistical analysis of where racehorses go when they leave training to help develop a wider strategy for ex-racehorses, together with the role that RoR plays and what factors should guide the charity’s funding. Deloitte will undertake this independent data analysis in conjunction with Weatherbys and BHA.
Paul Roy, Chairman of Retraining of Racehorses, said:
“It is eleven years since the last review and study was conducted by RoR, in that time the demand for former racehorses has increased significantly with over 8,000 horses now registered on our database and a number of high profile horses highlighting the adaptability of racehorses and their suitability for a range of equine disciplines.
“We absolutely recognise and value the role of the four retraining centres but we also acknowledge that the growing demand for former racehorses has led to many more applications to the charity for funding from independent centres and re-trainers, many of which are making a valuable contribution to re-homing. The review will consider how RoR should utilise its funding to best effect.
“I am delighted that Jonny McIrvine has agreed to lead the review. Jonny was a successful event rider competing at Badminton and Burghley and rode many former racehorses in this discipline. Jonny will be supported by resources in BHA, along with assistance from Weatherbys and Deloitte, which will ensure there is a range of charity, industry and equine expertise across the team.
“The consultation phase will commence in the coming weeks and we envisage that the recommendations arising from the review will be completed in June 2014. Our ultimate goal is to achieve a balance between the number of horses leaving Racing and the number of enthusiastic, and suitable, new homes able to take on the responsibility of looking after a former racehorse.”
We are thinking ahead and looking for your ideas
Clare Pool, RoR Co-Ordinator is now putting together retraining and education events and she would love to hear your ideas. Clare is also currently looking at organising the following events in the near future and would love to gauge your interest. These include:-
RoR CHALLENGE/WORKING HUNTER CLINIC with Louise Bell - in Gloucestershire.
Locations, dates and details to be advised once we have an idea of the level of interest for the respective events. Please e-mail Clare at email@example.com.

The Yogi Briesner Lecture demonstrration at Park End Equestrian Centre in Hexham, Monday 11th November was a great success with a record audience of over 150 attending the event to see Yogi at work with ex-racehorses.
Scottish Regional Co-Ordinator, Carol Magee said: "We were delighted with such a great turnout, plus as Yogi noted to see more men in the audience too! We had some brilliant feedback and as always, Yogi provided plenty for the audience to watch and learn from. All the horses taking part were well turned out and behaved extremely well considering some of the less experienced horses had not been in an indoor school before."

Pippa was lucky enough to spend a day with members of Area 8 of the Side Saddle Association on Sunday 27th October. She was asked to attend their AGM on behalf of the RoR. Pippa said that it was interesting to learn a little more about how Area 8 works, to hear about the planned 40th Anniversary Show to be held at Aintree Racecourse and the different types of classes that are on offer at the Side Saddle shows.
After lunch Pippa was invited to give a brief talk, followed by a Q & A. Pippa said; "It was great to hear that some of those who attended already had ex racehorses - raced and unraced - and others were in the process of or considering taking on an ex racehorse. By far the highlight of my day was being presented with this lovely Area 8 Side Saddle Rosette. It was a great, and the easiest, way to earn a rosette I have ever experienced! It has pride of place on the notice board at home!"
Thank you Area 8 for making Pippa and RoR feel so welcome and we look forward to seeing some of those who attended out and about with their ex racehorses.
