Mercian Competitions 2018

Mercian events are held in all Riding Club disciplines at a lower level than Area or Affiliated Competition. They are great fun and really friendly competitions suitable for members who are keen to go out and compete as part of a team. Dressage tests start with walk and trot and go up to novice, jumping heights start at 70cm (2’ 3”). Eligibility for these competitions can be checked on our website and we publish schedules for each event with details as soon as we have them. Competitions are held mainly outdoor on grass.


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 various competition disciplines have rules of eligibility for horses. These are amended almost every year so please check out the competitions in which you and your horse are qualified to take part so that you will have a ready response when contact and nagged into competing!

Area Competitions 2018 - BRC Area 18

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.


Flu Vaccinations

Any horse competing in Area teams must have a current & valid flu certificate. There is now an Area database on which details of these can be held, which should solve a lot of problems. Anyone who might compete in an Area team can have their flu certificate details entered on the datebase and just have the entry updated when the horse is vaccinated.

The sooner these are sent the better - either by scanning and emailing, or photocopy and post. If you send them to Judith or Louisa they will forward them on and, that way, when they do Area entries they will know whose certificates are already recorded.

It would be really helpful if you could do this NOW!


Please find below the preliminary dates for the Area events for this season.
We will update this page with more information as soon as we get it.
