Fletchers Farm Riding School Dressage Points Championship Sponsored by Broomfields Farm Equestrian & Country Store
& Emily Bradshaw Eventing - 2019 Rules
This year we will be running our points championship in two categories – Junior and Senior Points Champions.
Points will be awarded for each eligible dressage class at our shows from April – September 2019 for riders to collect according to their results as follows:
1st Place 6 points
2nd Place 5 Points
3rd Place 4 Points
4th Place 3 Points
5th Place 2 Points
6th Place 1 Point
The rider and horse combination to collect the most points over the course of the shows will win the championship. Riders can only collect points from two classes per show and the points will be taken from the first two classes entered per combination. Points will be awarded to the same horse/pony and rider combination only with the exception of riding school clients who will be required to compete on whichever suitable riding school horse is available for that show / class and therefore gain points individually. Junior riders are classed as riders who are 16 years old and under as of the 1st January 2019. All other riders will be classed in the Senior category. If entries warrant we will split results into junior/senior and award points from these sets of results.
The winner of each category will receive a £30 voucher for Broomfields Farm Equestrian & Country Store and a goody bag plus a private lesson from Emily Bradshaw Eventing. The runner up will receive a £15 voucher for Broomfields Farm Equestrian & Country Store and a £15 voucher from Fletchers Farm Riding School to be used towards a private lesson with the school.
