Would you like to represent your club at regional qualifiers in all disciplines, with the chance of competing in national championships?  If the answer is yes then read on and find out how to enter......

This is the protocol for entering AREA COMPETITIONS.

  • Area 4 committee choose the date and venue for the competition following the guidelines in the BRC rule book.  All the clubs in Area 4 are notified and we then advertise these to our members. 
  • The entries have to be in with Area 4 and BRC a clear 21 days prior to the competition, and at this point every member competing MUST appear as a paid up member of the club. 
  • The closing date for the members to get their entry into the person organising the team may vary but generally speaking it’s at least 31 days prior to the competition due to the selection panel having to meet up and go through all the entries.
  • Therefore to avoid disappointment, if you see a competition that you would really like to be part of, send the entry form, payment and copy of your horse’s vaccination certificate back ASAP to the named person on the newsletter or website. No person will be accepted for an Area 4 competition without any of these.


Please note:

Should a rider drop out 3 weeks or less before an event and a replacement is found then 50% entry fee is to be paid by both parties.  Should a rider drop out more than 3 weeks prior to an event then they are entitled to 100% refund.
