Held at Aintree Equestrian Centre, the STARS Champion of Champions Show in partnership with TopSpec, will run from November 19 to 21, and is the brainchild of show rider Sarah Harrison.
Sarah created and became the founder of STARS Champion of Champions in 2018, with the aim of providing a championship event specifically for Riding Club and Pony Club members.
Said Sarah: “The shows sole purpose is to give competitors a prestigious event to aspire to, and to be proud of qualifying for and attending.
“The event not only provides the honour of competing against the best-of-the-best, but also allows competitors to have the opportunity to gain points for their individual clubs. “The riding club points are accumulated over the STARS weekend and the club with the most points will be crowned Riding Club of the Year.
“We really do try and put on a fabulous show, with a championship feel and are delighted to welcome this new partnership with TopSpec. This year will be our third event and it will no doubt continue to grow in stature and popularity.”
Added Nicola Tyler of TopSpec: “Sarah and the team have quickly developed a fantastic show for Riding Club and Pony Club members interested in showing and we are very pleased to be supporting the event. “Our team of feed advisors will be in attendance over the three days providing expert but friendly feeding advice for all competitors wanting help with their horses or ponies.”
A busy schedule of classes run from Friday to Sunday including a Working Hunter series, Equitation, Best Turned Out, M&M, Cobs, Veteran, Show Hunter Pony, Show Pony and Coloured sections.
The show’s finale leads to the awards presentation for The STARS Riding Club of the Year Supreme In-Hand Championship, The STARS Riding Club of the Year Supreme Ridden Championship and The STARS Riding Club of the Year Supreme Presentation bringing the event to a fitting climax on the Sunday evening.
