Series Rock With RoR Challenge

This initiative, launched in 2017, will continue into 2018, is to encourage and reward riders who have a go at a Freestyle to Music test – affiliated or unaffiliated on a RoR registered horse. This could be as an Individual, in Pairs or as a Quadrille Team.

Overview

The Rock with RoR Challenge is to promote Dressage to Music to riders of former racehorses.

Entries at the 2017 RoR National Championships at Aintree were really good for the Dressage To Music classes. We had 26 entries in the Novice class alone! The standard was fantastic which is reflected in the results (which can be found on the RoR National Championships page)

RoR will continue to promote and recognise RoR Members training and progressing to competition on former racehorses.

Eligibility: All horses must have current RoR Competition Membership

RoR will offer a commemorative rosette to any rider of a RoR registered horse who sends in a fully completed test sheet, including the Judge’s signature and RoR registration number, from a Dressage to Music competition. The rosette will be awarded regardless of the level of test the rider competes in or the score they achieve, to continue to raise awareness of incentive. It is hoped with support from RoR Members that this Challenge could progress to become a Series within its own right.

Competitors must familiarise themselves with the rules of British Riding Clubs and British Dressage and be aware of associated membership and music licenses. Find out more here:
