Team ECCTG – summer qualifiers!

We are approaching summer qualifier season so anyone wanting to represent the club please get in touch with your Chef d’Equipes – details below!

Show and style jumping – Sunday 10 July   – Radfords (Llanymynech) – Gwen Robinson

Individual and team competitions, 70cm-110cm. The 70cm, 80cm and 90cm are all split in to juniors and seniors with the 100cm and 110cm being mixed classes.

Style jumping is similar to show jumping, but marks are based on the rider’s performance and effectiveness rather than the horse’s. There is a 75cm class and an 85cm class for this competition and is split into juniors and seniors. Individuals and teams may compete in this class; teams must have two riders ride at 75cm and two ride at 85cm.

The championships is held at Lincoln Showground, 3-4th September

Eventing – Sunday 17 July   – Somerford – Abi Unwin 

Classes for teams and individuals for 80cm (including an open 80 class), 90cm, 100cm and Open (100+). The championships are run at Swalcliffe, Banbury 5-7th August and are a one day event for the 80cm, two day event for 90cm and three day event for 100/100+, including roads and tracks and steeplechase phases.

Dressage and riding test – Sunday 24 July   – Radfords (Llanymynech) – Corrie McLellan

The Championships include a wide range of dressage classes ranging from intro (new this year) right the way up to Advanced Medium. Classes for teams and individuals, as well as pairs sections!

The riding test is similar to a dressage test, but marks are awarded according to the rider’s performance (effectiveness and presentation of the test), and the horse’s paces are not considered. This competition can be ridden as an individual or as part of a team; For senior teams, two members ride the Prelim RT and the other two ride the Novice RT. Junior team members all ride Prelim RT.

The championships is held at Lincoln Showground, 3-4th September
