Arena Eventing NEWSFLASH

To all club Chairs, Committees, Team managers and members,

Due to large entries, we will be running over 2 days at Northallerton E.C. Saturday 3/11/18 & Sunday 4/11/18, enabling us to accommodate all clubs for this new area 4 qualifier.

We have looked at many options and feel this is for this first year the fairest way to run.
I know it will not please everyone, however, we have taken into consideration:
The available daylight hours, running under floodlights, ( this would pose a safety consideration, and an unfair disadvantage to some riders) and maybe riding in inclement weather in November under floodlights.
If we were to ballot, we would need to loose 100+ entries to give us the doable numbers to run on one day.
If we were to remove individual entries, this would only take us down to 208, which is not doable In one day.
If we were to ask clubs for ‘natural wastage’ we would need to loose 100+ entries.

It is appreciated that members may have other things in their diaries for the Sunday, and may not want to travel both days.

We will need helpers on both days and would ask for members to volunteer before we make a direct request to clubs.

We already have 1 arena Steward covered for both days! Thank you

We have tried to find the best solution to give all entered members the opportunity to ride in this competition.

Start 9am finish 4pm ish 

Day 1: 70cm mixed + Jnr 80cm + Snr 80cm.
Day 2: Jnr 90cm + Snr 90cm + 100cm mixed.
(This is the option preferred for course building for practical reasons, and will only affect 6 riders who would have horses on both days).

Please see Sam’s e mail re withdrawals and changes, and closing date for prelim entries.

I will speak to the office and ask for an extension until Sunday 14/10/18 for prelim entries.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes

Margaret

Results for Northern Regional Championships 2018

overall results

Evening all,
A quick but heartfelt thank you to all of you for your efforts yesterday.  I think most competitors went away with smiles on their faces.
That was due to your prompt but diligence actions whenever a problem arose.
Can I ask that you put the next bit in your area websites.
“On Sunday 19th August Areas 2, 4 and 16 held their annual championships for dressage and show jumping. There were over 200 entries with classes from walk/trot tests to elementary in a long arena; with heights from 60 to 100 in the show jumping.
The emphasis is team competitions although  individuals were included were ever possible.  Some decisions are not always popular but when applied to all are fair.
There were lots of smiling faces and thank you’s from competitors.
Now it is my turn to say thank you to:-
1, all who came and competed yesterday.
2, to our hosts, for their fantastic work to have the arenas well covered with green grass !!
3, scorers, judges and course builders who kept the show on the road.
4, the many volunteers who came and helped.
5, to the organising committee for giving up their free time, not just over this weekend but during the planning stages during the year.
Finally we had lost an integral part from a wheel lock in the long grass on Saturday, an urgent plea for a metal detector went out.  On Sunday after doing his dressage test the said part was located, so Dave Reynolds, you saved the day, many thanks.
Richard Thompson, Northern Regional Comittee chairman. “
