Previous winners of the RoR Dressage Horse Championships up to and including 2019 are no longer eligible to compete at the same level in these Championships in subsequent years. In the event of Championship classes being oversubscribed and possibly split, then the prize money will be paid on the overall result.
To qualify, riders must submit three score sheets for the level at the required percentage or above from affiliated competitions, unaffiliated competitions or both. Score sheets must include the registered name of the horse, have full details re date and venue and must be signed by the Judge. The qualification is for horse/rider, no substitutes (horse or rider) allowed. Horse/rider combinations are allowed to compete in two classes so long as they have submitted the relevant qualifying score sheets. Horses qualified with two riders are not allowed to be entered more than once in any Championship class. Competitors will receive notification of qualification by email, upon receipt and verification of scores.
The Championship classes will run and be judged under BD rules, they will however, also be affiliated to RoR only and no BD grading points will be awarded.
Combinations are allowed to take part in this, the RoR Northern Dressage Horse Series and the RoR Scottish Dressage Horse Series, but must submit the relevant score sheets for each Championship.
Competitors cannot use the same score sheet/sheets for the three Championships.
The qualification period is 01.12.19 to 17.08.20 inclusive and no exception.
