Rules and Eligibility
If you belong to more than one Mercian-affiliated club, you can compete for which ever club you choose but only for one club per day.
The level is for more confident and established combinations and may be entered by individuals and teams. Entries have to be sent to Riding Club Head Office, three weeks in advance of each competition and at this point the club pay a non-refundable fee for each entry. This can be as much as £20 per competitor and is in addition to the entry fee that the member pays to the organising club. This can be a large expense to the club. All area competitions are qualifiers for championships. Members need to ensure they are available to go to the championships before they put their name down for the qualifiers. Horses must be up to date with their flu vaccinations. These are checked prioer to each competition and if there is a gap you will not be allowed to compete. Dressage tests start with prelim and go up to medium, jumping heights start at 75cm (2' 6"). Eligibility for these competitions can also be checked on our website and we publish schedules for each new event with details as soon as we have them. Competitions are both indoor and outdoor on a surface or grass.
