Team Challenge

After the successful pilot of a team competition in 2019 and following feedback from riders and our Working Groups in conjunction with ERA of GB, BE is delighted to introduce the Team Challenge for the 2020 season – a brand new competition for adult riders at BE80(T) and BE90 Open level.

Riders have the opportunity to select their own teams and apply to compete in any of the ten Team Challenge Qualifiers for the chance to win a place at the Rowen Barbary Team Challenge Championship at Weston Park (2) in October 2020.

Do I have to be a member to take part?

All riders must be members of British Eventing to compete – but did you know that for the qualifiers this includes a Day Pass Membership? Day Pass membership costs just £15 and Horse and Rider Day Passes are £16 each, reduced from £32 to £25 when both are purchased at the same time.

Horses and riders may compete at a Qualifier with a Day Pass Membership and Day Passes, but riders will need to be a Full Member and horses will need to have a valid full or half Season Ticket in order to compete at the Championship.

The application and entry process

Are you ready to get involved? Follow our step by step guide:

1. View the full rules and eligibility criteria HERE.

2. Gather a team of between 3-4 combinations (use our designated Facebook group to find team members HERE!) and appoint a team captain

3. Before applying, make sure that all members of your team have their details registered with British Eventing (both human and equine!). You don't need to be a paid member at the time of applying, only at the point of making entries. Riders can register details on our system HERE, and you can find information on registering your horse HERE.

4. Decide which level and what qualifier(s) you want to enter from the list below

5. When applications open, apply for your Qualifier of choice via the table below (applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis so make sure to get yours in EARLY!). Once applications have closed, you will be notified as to whether your team has been successful.

6. Get training! Keep an eye on the BE Training & Education Facebook page and BE training courses page for specialised Team Challenge training in your area.

7. If your team was accepted to the Qualifier, make your entries once your Qualifier opens. You will enter the designated Qualifier section as an individual stating which team you are in on the entry form. At least three team members will need to make an entry by Ballot Date in order to avoid the team place being passed down to the next team on the waitlist.

8. Have fun!

The Championship

The winning team from each qualifier will qualify for the Championships at Weston Park (2), 10-11 October 2020 sponsored by Rowen Barbary.
