Area 18 Dressage

Area 18 Dressage Thank you to everyone who came to support us and volunteered their help, time and equipment at our first go at hosting an area 18 competition. We ran the area dressage at Aston Munslow on Sunday 14th July and it was a great success! We had 5 arenas and a total of 28 tests. There were 89 combinations, 10 people riding multiple horses and most people doing more than one test. As you can imagine this caused a bit of a logistical nightmare in sorting the times and running different tests in different arenas! Thankfully it didn’t rain and we managed to get the scores out in… Read More

Equine Influenza – Official guidance from BRC in relation to the upcoming area competitions

“A lot of local vets are recommending a booster if your horses have not been vaccinated in the last 6 months which is totally fine with BRC. However please do not forget that horses must not have had a vaccination 7 days prior to an area qualifier. This means the last day for your horses to be vaccinated before the SJ qualifier is 15th February. Unfortunately any horses vaccinated between the 16th – 23rd February will not be able to compete and will have to go home. We really don’t want to send anyone home so please make sure all your teams & individuals are aware of the rules. If you… Read More
