This programme is run at BE100 Open level and is designed to provide experience for riders competing against their own age group while being both fun and educational. It will also provide a stepping stone up to Pony Trials, the Pony Squad or on to the Open Novice Regional Youth Programme.

Ready to move to Novice level?
The Open Novice Regional Youth Programme is for riders aged 18 or under already competing at, or looking to progress to, Novice level. Providing training and competition opportunities, the programme will develop combinations hoping to compete at the Regional Youth Team Championships, run at CCI2*-L level.
BE100 U18 Classes and Regional Youth Team Championship
The country is divided into eight regions, each with its own regional team of volunteers and coaches. Riders are required to register for their region to compete in BE100Ou18 classes. Each region will hold a minimum of four BE100Ou18 competitions for each selection period, where riders have the opportunity to be considered for selection for their regional team and potentially compete in the BE100Ou18 Regional Youth Team Championships.
Riders competing in these classes have the opportunity to attend course walks and receive warm up support from the experienced team of Regional Youth BE Accredited Coaches.
The BE100 Regional Youth Team Championship
Held at BE100 Open level, the BE100Ou18 Regional Youth Team Championships sees each of the eight regions enter a team of up to 10 riders, with the best four scores at the end of the competition counting as the regional team score. Riders also compete individually.
The 2020 selection policy will be published here soon.
The BE100Ou18 Regional Team Championship eligibility information is available in the BE Rules and Members Handbook HERE.
