Amateur Elite Rules and Regulations

Registration:

  • You can either pre-register or register no later than 21 days’ post qualification in order to be a member of the “Amateur Elite Finalists”, however to compete at the final you need to qualify and send in your qualification ticket to the secretary.
  • The registration fee is £15 and this entitles you to complementary Novice/Open membership (you still need to qualify to attend the finals), along with a subsidised pre-champs Clinic with panel judges to help make sure you are ready for the finals.

How to qualify:

  • Attend one of our 15 qualifiers and gain 1st or 2nd qualifying ticket.
  • You will qualify just for that class in which you entered.  This qualification DOES NOT give access to other classes within the Amateur Elite unless you have specifically qualified in these.
  • Send off your qualification ticket to the Amateur Elite Secretary to register as an Amateur Elite Finalist (this must be done no later than 21 days’ post qualifying to be able to enter the final).

Qualification allows you, as a combination, to enter (once registered) that class in which you qualified.  You can of course qualify in more than one class.

In the event of an Inhand exhibitor qualifying more than one pony and they are competing in the same class, they may designate a substitute handler for the extra pony.  Riders in Ridden and Working Hunter classes at the Championships MUST be the same combination that qualified, NO rider substitutions.  Qualification is NOT transferable and if a pony is bought or sold, the registration and qualification is no longer valid.

Registration and/or qualification for the Amateur Elite classes does not give automatic entry at any time to the Novice/Open Championships.  These must be qualified for separately.   Competitors are eligible to qualify for the Novice and Open Championships as well as the Amateur Elite Finals if they fit the criteria. 

Eligibility

The qualifiers and championships are open to Combinations that have not qualified or competed at the Horse of The Year Show or The Royal International Show in 2015,2016 or 2017. Both the Novice/Open Championships and the Amateur Elite Finals are for the true amateur rider and home produced horses and ponies.

Our definitions are as follows:

Amateur Rider: Riders must not earn money for producing ponies and horses for clients. Riders not to earn money from buying/selling horses and ponies. Riders not to be paid to school horses/ponies or ride at shows. Riders not to be sponsored by any organisations. Any competitor actively running a Stud, for the production of new stock for breeding/selling is classed as a Professional.

Home Produced: Horses must not have been kept on a producer’s yard since 1st January 2015.

Competitors may not knowingly exhibit any horse/pony that has been bred, sold, leased, produced, broken, ridden or trained by the Judge and/or his/her immediate family or his/her employer or anyone with whom he/she resides.  Our rules will always be enforced and any competitor found to be in contempt of these will have their placings removed and invitations to further Championships removed.
