Riding Club and Pony Club Team Eventer Challenges sponsored by Dodson & Horrell
The 90cm and 100cm Riding Club and Pony Club Team Eventer Challenges are kindly sponsored by Dodson & Horrell. These very popular events are grass-arena-based competitions, held in the Bladon and Hensington Arenas, over a testing course of show jumps and cross-country fences with an optimum time for completion. The team with the lowest cumulative score are the winners, and there is also an award for the most stylish rider.
The Riding Club competition will take place on Thursday 19th September, and the Pony Club competition will take place on Friday 20th September.
Please note: Due to the popularity of the eventer challenge classes at Blenheim, no horse or rider may compete in more than one eventer challenge competition at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials.
Due to the recent outbreak of equine influenza, all eventer challenge classes will be run under British Eventing rules with regards to vaccinations. Please ensure you bring all passports of the horses/ponies travelling to the event as you will need to provide them to the secretary upon your arrival for inspection. For the BE rule book, please use the following link: http://bit.ly/BE-rules and proceed to page 80.
2019 rules are available to download from the left-hand side of this page.
The following classes are still open for the 2019 competition:
We are pleased to announce that this year we are holding a new class for 100cm Riding Club Individuals. This is open to members of riding clubs who are affiliated to British Riding Clubs and who have ridden at the correct level. This class is open to both seniors and junior members (please see rules for eligibility criteria). Entries should be done online and will cost £40 plus a £5 start fee on the day. We anticipate that this will be a popular section and therefore spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis. This competition will be run in line with SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials Riding Club Team Eventer Challenge rules and riders may still only compete once at the Eventer Challenge.
Please note that SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials has adopted the BE ruling for vaccinations which will be applied rather than Riding Club rules.
