Tri-Zone BE100 Eventer Challenge criteria relaxed

Friday, July 13, 2012 - 14:30

Tri-Zone and the Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials are to relax the qualifying conditions for the Tri-Zone BE100 competition at Blenheim on September 9th, in light of the recent spate of wet weather cancellations.  Entries will now be taken from riders with just two qualifying results from the BE100 classes at qualifying venues and Purston Manor (August 4th/5th)  will now also run as a qualifying event. 

In the event of oversubscription, priority criteria will apply*. One amateur rider delighted by the response to Blenheim’s ongoing flexibility on the Tri-Zone qualifications is Janet Hammond who said:  “I have managed to keep my motivation high by focussing on one key goal – qualification to this event –we have just clocked up our third double clear so  I am in the process of completing my entry for Blenheim. And am so grateful  to Equilibrium for sponsoring such a great event for amateur riders to aim for”.

The Tri-Zone BE100 Eventer Challenge is an arena-based class run over 6 – 8 show jumps and 6 – 8 Cross country fences of 1 – 1.10m in height. The competition is designed to give local riders and horses, whose dressage may not be so strong, a chance to compete as qualification is based on jumping results only and is sponsored by  Equilibrium Products, the company behind the Tri-Zone® brand of high performance boots.

In addition to this Tri-Zone class, spectators attending the event on Sunday 9th September  will be able to enjoy watching some of the up and coming 8 and 9 year old event horses at three star level go cross country over the CIC*** course and watch the show jumping finale of the CCI*** competition featuring most of the world’s leading professional riders.
