BRC to reward their Members competing with British Showjumping
The British Riding Clubs (BRC) will begin rewarding and acknowledging the success of their senior members who are competing on horses with British Showjumping.
As of the 1 April 2019 two annual BRC Leagues will be hosted on the British Showjumping website. The leagues will highlight all members that are also a member of a British Riding Club and sit within either the British Showjumping Bronze or Silver leagues.
The British Riding Club Bronze & Silver Leagues will run from the 1 April each year until the 31 March and are for horse and rider combinations. BRC will award the top ten competitors from each league with rosettes and prizes in kind.
Justine Naylor, National Director of Sport at British Showjumping said “We are delighted BRC are recognising the success of their members in this way, it is a great way to celebrate the achievements of cross-discipline participants. With Bronze League classes starting at 70cm through to 1.10m there are many opportunities for their members to compete with us and for them to make use of the training programmes we deliver via our Academy framework”.
Existing members that wish to be included in the BRC League need to give British Showjumping Membership their BRC Membership number. If you are a BRC member wishing to join British Showjumping for the first time, there is a BRC Membership Offer where both horse and rider can join for a discounted combined rate of £136 for the year.
For further information regarding the leagues or the BRC discounted member offer please call the BS Membership team on 02476 698824.

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. “
Please note that if an individual or team member has Qualified for either Lincoln or been to FOH this year they are not able to attend this championships. The team member may be replaced.
