Every year Tivyside RC puts forward teams and individuals to compete with other Area 21 clubs in the Area 21 qualifiers in Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing.
The Winter Qualifiers are as follows: The first qualifier is the Winter Dressage on October 19th at Lluest, Aberystwyth with Dyffryn Paith hosting. This comprises a team of 4 riders, 2 of which ride Prelim 18 and two who ride Novice 24. The best three scores then go towards making the team score.
Then we have the Novice Indoor Show Jumping at Moor Farm on 23rd November with West Wales. A team of four jump two rounds of 80 cm with the best three scores to count. If there is equality there is then a jump off to decide the winning team.
There may be the opportunity to have the new Winter Intermediate class at this competition which would be a team of four jumping two rounds of 95 cm, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Intermediate Dressage qualifier at Ammanford with Cwmamman (date and venue to be decided). Again a team of four with one rider doing Prelim 13, one rider doing Novice 28, one rider doing Novice 34 and one rider doing Elementary 42. Again the best three scores will count for the team score.
So, if you would like to have a go at being on a team for any of these competitions, come along to the team information night at Webley Hotel, Poppit on Friday the 12th of September for 7.30. (Bar meals will be available beforehand) There will be all the information you need about each competition including rules and horse and rider eligibility (things like how many points/money a horse can have and if you have competed Internationally etc.)
You will need a correct flu vac for your horse to compete at these competitions so you must bring that along with you so we can check it on the night to make sure it is correct, and also to make copies for the relevant organisers of each qualifier.
We will also be talking about who your Chef will be and team training sessions for you and your team members which will be either riding the dressage tests or jumping courses to help you as best we can to get you to the competition in the best possible shape.
We are committed to helping you as much as possible and ask for that commitment to be reciprocated in attending this meeting and team training.
Even if you have been on a team before, if you want to be on team this year we need you to come to this meeting as you will be able to contribute your past experiences to new team members.
We will not be ringing around for people to be in teams this year so you will need to come to this meeting if you would like to be in a team. None of these competitions can be ridden as an individual.
Please let Sarah know you are coming by Tuesday 9th of September on 01545 560813 firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be repeating this in the New Year for the summer qualifiers which include team/individual Dressage to Music, Prelim to Medium Dressage, Riding Test, Style Jumping, Novice, Intermediate and Open Show Jumping and Novice, Intermediate and Open Horse Trials.
