Eventing / Eventing Rules

The intention of changing the qualification for Open Eventing is to enable more members to qualify for the Open Eventing Championships. Therefore, members can qualify via two routes.
Either qualifying as usual through Area Qualifying competitions (see rule 33 i & ii) or through their BE qualifying results (see rule 33iv). Either route enables members to compete at the Pony Club Championship and also Frickley Park for their BE Under 18 and under 21 Areas.
The Eventing Committee hopes that Areas will continue to run their Area Qualifying competitions at all levels.

All entries from Area competitions or via qualifying results should be made using the online events system. Entry deadline for Area Competition qualifiers will be 7 days after the Area competition or the next day if the competitions is after 2nd August. Entry deadline for Members using qualifying results is 5pm on 31st July. All entries made using qualifying results will be checked and verified with the D.C.
