British Eventing announce British Riding Clubs BE80 Series

BRCBritish Eventing are very pleased to announce that we have been working together with British Riding Clubs to provide an Eventing series for BRC members.

It offers a series within the existing BE calendar to culminate in a Championship for grassroots BRC members, not catered for by the existing BRC competition structure. The series will also give BRC members a taste of BE Affiliated competitions and give them access to more competition opportunities.

The qualification for this is fairly simple, every section of the BE80, from the 1st March to the 10th September 2011, will be a qualifier for the BRC BE80 Championship. BRC members and horses must be eligible to compete in BE80(T) classes (see BE Rule Book online).

BRC members can take part in the BE80 series by either becoming a BE member, or by being in possession of a BE Training Ticket. Training tickets can be purchased online from the BE website and cost just £10 for horse and rider.

To qualify for the inaugural BRC BE80 Championship, which will be held at Brooksby College in late September, riders must be one of the two highest placed BRC members, achieving a clear round cross country in each BE80(T) section.

BRC members may take part in as many qualifying competitions as they wish, however, once qualified, any subsequent qualification will pass down the line if the combination compete in any further BE80(T) competitions. Full details for this series can be found below and will also be detailed in issue 49 of the British Eventing Magazine (out on 31 December 2010) or on the British Eventing website. 

BE80(T) is an entry level training class introduced by British Eventing in 2008. The ‘T’ stands for training since competitors have the opportunity to gain training from British Eventing Accredited coaches who are provided for the class by British Eventing
