Winter series 2012 12 Dec 11

Prepare for the season ahead with BE and Baileys

What better way to prepare for the season ahead than with the British Eventing Baileys winter training competitions? Both the Jumping and Style (JAS) and Jump Training series’ start in January 2012 and are available to both members and non-members.

Jane Buchan, Marketing Manager for Baileys says, “BE’s winter training series are great for blowing away winter cobwebs and getting focused on the season ahead. It’s also a good time to consider how a horse’s diet can affect performance and we thoroughly enjoy meeting and talking to those who take part."

Jump Training offers a unique opportunity to get the experienced eye of our Coaches in a competition environment at a range of venues, from January through to April.

  • Phase 1: walk the course with the BE Accredited Coach
  • Phase 2: guided working in – each rider receives a guided warm up individually from one of the Coaches prior to Phase 3
  • Phase 3: The competition – competitors jump one round under the watchful eye of a Coach and then receive feedback and advice before jumping again.
  • Both rounds are scored on the rider’s position and ability, the horse’s style and any jumping fault. The scores are added together to provide an overall score.

The JAS series is a tried and tested way of getting you and your horse in a competition environment before starting the Eventing season. Combinations are judged on style as well as technique whilst jumping a course of showjumping and cross country fences. The ‘Style’ mark is awarded and converted to penalty points which are added to cross country time and ‘Jumping’ penalties incurred during both phases; the winners will be the combination with the lowest penalty score at the end of the competition (full rules available on the schedule).

You can win prizes including feed vouchers from Baileys Horse Feeds and Training Vouchers up to the value of £500 for winners of each section at both the series finals. Schedule available from
