BRC Novice Winter Dressage Championships 30 March 2019, Arena UK

26 Teams contested the Novice Winter Dressage Championships at Arena  UK, with the Rutland Team of Dawn Ross and Ultratop van Overis Z; Bella Craven and Coletto Boy; Tamsyn Iveson and Enniscrone Morgan Gold and Emily Lumb and Donna Melissa finishing 11th; just out of the Team rosettes by one place and in the top half.

Tamsyn and Dougie were placed 3rd in Novice 24 on a score of 72.1%. They were only just pipped for top place and it was great to see them at the mounted prize giving, as they produced a lovely Test

Emily and Donna Melissa were 4th in Novice 27 on a score of 71.96%. Again, marks were very close at the top of the class and Donna Melissa went well

Many thanks to everyone who competed and to Rosemary David, our team volunteer, who wrote for one of the Dressage Judges'.

BRC Grassroots Training 2019

BRC have once again teamed up with world class instructors, this time giving BRC members tuition in the Show Jumping discipline, at venues throughout the UK. Professional advice will also be given to the riders with two thirty minute talks, talking about the importance of clean sport and nutrition with NAF and the Worshipful Company of Saddlers will also be attending talking about tack.

The aim of these training days is to encourage our grassroots rider and to give them the confidence to move up the levels and eventually compete at our qualifiers and hopefully championships! This is a fabulous opportunity for grassroots riders to learn from world class experts. Members are welcome to join any training day in any area, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria.

There will be four levels across the day: 

Group 1 level 1: Introduction to jumping and pole work.

Group 2 Level 2: 60cm-70cm- Jumping single jumps and short courses at home

Group 3 Level 3: 70cm-80cm- Wanting/aiming to compete at an area qualifier

Group 4 Level 4: 80-90cm- Have competed at a qualifier/BRC championship but not in the last 12 months
