The first three go forward to the final at Al Shira'aa Hickstead Derby Meeting on 28th June 2020 or 2021 for shows after 1st June 2020.
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.
