The RoR Tattersalls Show Series is part of the RoR Elite Performance Awards. The winner of the championship held at Hickstead in June 2019 will receive a prize of £2,500 at an Awards Ceremony at the end of 2019.
Please make sure you have big enough stirrups for the ride judges. You will not be asked to gallop your horse.
Racing injuries and blemishes are NOT ignored. Horses should be a mare or gelding, four-years-old or over, any height. Riders must be 15 years or over on 1st January 2019. Competitors must wear a safety/kite mark hard hat with a chinstrap.
From 2019 the first three at each qualifying show go forward to the championship at the Hickstead Derby Meeting. There will also be a prize for the highest placed veteran 15 years or over. Please note, qualifiers must enter the Hickstead Derby meeting under usual entry procedure.
The class will be run under the rules of RoR. Horses should be ridden in a snaffle, pelham or simple double bridle, and should be plaited. General purpose or straight cut saddles may be used. Competitors must wear a safety/kite mark hard hat with a chinstrap.
Please be aware that should the entries exceed 20 the show will split the class on the horse's last run in a race (NH or Flat) or will provide two ride judges. Please mark your entry form accordingly.
The final will be split into two; one class will be for horses whose last race was on the flat and the other class for those whose last race was under National Hunt rules (this includes National Hunt Flat races and Point to Point races). The top six from each section will be taken into the International Arena for the final judging.
Previous RoR champions at the final at Hickstead are unable to compete in the final in subsequent years but they can compete in qualifiers should they so wish.
