Novice/Open Rules and Regulations

Qualification allows you, as a combination, to enter (once registered) any class in which you are eligible.  You are not restricted to only entering the class in which you originally qualified.  There is no limit to the number of classes you enter but no responsibility will be accepted if you are unable to be at the ringside on time for the start of that 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  Qualification is NOT transferable and if a pony is bought or sold, the registration and qualification is no longer valid.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 Novice/Open Championship classes does not give automatic entry at any time to The Amateur Elite 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. 

How to qualify:

  • Attend one of our many qualifiers and be placed 1st-4th to gain a qualifying place.  Please print off the qualification/registration form to take to the show with you
  • This qualification DOES NOT give access to the Amateur Elite classes unless you have specifically qualified in these.
  • Send off your qualification ticket to the Novice/Open Secretary to register (this must be done no later than 21 days’ post qualifying to be able to enter the final).
  • You are then eligible to enter AS A COMBINATION as many classes as you wish

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.
