Increase to Five-Year-Old Championship Qualification Places

To increase competition opportunities for young horses this season, we are happy to announce that more qualifying places have been made available for the 2020 BE Five-Year-Old Championship. 


The top 20 per cent (up from 10%) of horses from BE100 Five-Year-Old classes this season will now be eligible to compete in the Championship. Plus, where horses have placed in the top 20 per cent in a previous BE100 5YO class and therefore already secured their qualification, qualification will be rolled down the placings.

Emails have been sent to newly qualified combinations who meet the new criteria. However, if you have not received an email and believe you have qualified, please email with the name of your horse, rider and the event you think you qualified at.

For this year only, the 2020 Five-Year-Old Championship is taking place at Oasby (2) Horse Trials from 24 – 25 October. Entries open HERE on 25 September.
