Good morning to everyone involved at the SX last weekend,

On behalf of area 4, please pass on a huge thank you to all the
helpers and everyone concerned with area 4 SX qualifier at Epworth

The weather was kind to us for the SX which contributed to the day
being a very pleasant and successful day.
Congratulations to all members who were placed and good luck to teams
and individuals who will making their way to Aston-le-Walls to fly the flag for their clubs and area 4!
Remember to let lisa Fieldsend have any stories, photos and results
from the championships for posting on the website. I’m sure there will be some interesting reading.
We are trying to build an archive section for the championships!

Please could I ask clubs to make sure they look after their volunteers
re refreshments at area competitions, and remember to see Toni Tait
for reimbursement of money paid out.
Horse trials are looming so here we go again and remember if anyone  would like to help, other then the clubs already involved, please get in touch with Denise Newsome.

See you all at Breconborugh.

BRC Hat Tagging Guidelines 2016

BRC Hat Guidelines 2016
Information for Competitors v2
How does this affect me?…….
For 2016, all members will be required to have their hats tagged with a new ORANGE hat tag before competing in any BRC Qualifiers or Championships.
When you arrive at the competition, take your hat with you when you go to declare. The Official Steward will then check that your hat complies with an accepted standard, and will place a unique BRC tag on it. It is a good idea to allow a little extra time when arriving at a competition for this to be done.
Please note, you will not be allowed to ride anywhere at that event if your hat has not been tagged, and hats which do not comply to an accepted standard will not be tagged under any circumstances.
It is the competitors’ responsibility to ensure they arrive at a competition with a hat to the correct standard so it is therefore imperative that you check your hats before you get to the event, in order to avoid disappointment. To do this:
1) Use the following information or the BRC 2016 Rule Book for reference
2) Check that your hat clearly displays one of the accepted standards
3) Check that the standard also shows the correct corresponding date
4) Check that your hat also displays the correct corresponding quality assurance mark
5) Make sure that you do not remove any labels from inside of your hat which may hold the relevant information as a hat will not be tagged without all of the required information permanently visible.
Only hats which comply with all of the above steps will be accepted for tagging. If you’re in doubt, please contact the BRC office for further advice. If your hat cannot be tagged, you will not be allowed to ride wearing that hat under any circumstances.
Please note: No alterations, protrusions or additions are to be made to a hat under any circumstances. For the Quadrille competition, please see the Quadrille rules in the Rule Book for further information regarding costumes.

 Please find attached the “emergency changes form” which is for use ON THE DAY of the competition in case of any last minute changes. Don’t forget this needs to be completed in quadruplicate.

 Also, a suggestion from Sam at York & District at the last Area 4 Committee Meeting was to create a generic “spare declarations form” for use ON THE MORNING of the competition.  You will have been sent these for your entries once you have registered your prelim entries with HQ.  Just in case you don’t have one, there are some spares available at the secretary’s desk on the day.  Alternatively, please complete the attached “generic” spare declarations form in advance of the competition (ONLY if you have don’t have the correct documentation from HQ). 

Both these forms need to be completed in FULL and handed to the secretary’s desk AT LEAST 30 MINUTES before your first rider competes.

Good Luck to everyone and I look forward to seeing you all compete on Saturday,

If you have any queries before the day, please give me a call.

Kind Regards,


Area 4 Competition Secretary

Selby Junior Rider Lucy Williams at the BRC Intermediate Dressage Championships 2016

Well done done to Selby Junior rider Lucy Williams at the BRC Intermediate dressage champs at Bury today. This was her second BRC champs within 3 weeks after taking 2nd place individual and team 3rd at Keysoe.
Lucy’s pony came out of his stable a bit tense with the atmosphere of the occasion, but despite this Lucy still managed to improve on her qualifying score of 65.4% for her elementary test which sadly meant she finished just outside of the placings.

Scarborough RC Report on the Winter SJ Championships at Keysoe 2016

Scarborough Team: Amy Osborne, Rowan Haywood, Sarah Beal and Sammy Wade
We made the journey down from Scarborough to compete in the novice winter showjumping championships. With two young novice horses in the team and two slightly more experienced horses we set off with nervous excitement/anticipation. We were delighted all team members completed, Amy and Sarah jumped lovely clears in the first round and were both unlucky to have a pole down in the second round. Rowan jumped two lovely rounds just to pick up two fences during the rounds. Sammi was our very reliable reserve in member standing in for our qualifying team mate Zoe Jenkins who was enjoying herself in Aus.
It was lovely to see both Rowans and Sarahs young horses grow in confidence and jump so well especially in the second rounds. We finished in 11th place….0.7 of a second between us and 10th…
On a personal note it is really good that the Riding Club and KBIS sponsors give us the opportunity to compete at such lovely venues so we can all gain valuable experience.
The whole team and our brilliant supporters thoroughly enjoyed the couple of days away and some sound friendships were made along the way.

Report on Winter SJ Championships from Holme Valley RC

Holme Valley Riding Clubs Senior Novice Showjumping team had one last training session with Peter Mellor the night before making the long journey down to Keysoe. Half the team stayed overnight while the other two came down in the morning, spirits were high although with two 6 yr olds in our team we were a little nervous too. The course was technical with a dog leg, a combination and lots of spooky fillers to look at but proved to be very jumpable. Our first rider was in at 8.05am and by lunchtime with a couple of clears we had finished the first rounds on a score of 4 putting us in contention for a placing if we could keep it up. The fences went up for the 2nd round and although the course only altered slightly poles began to fall all round the course. We finished the afternoon on a total of 12 after a couple of unlucky poles and after an anxious wait for the final results finished in a very creditable 7th place. The rosette was lovely and we all came away with some great pictures of our horses who really rose to the challenge and all played their part in the team. The team was Clair Hinchcliffe on Whitfield Blue Diamond, Clare Hinchcliffe on Alfie, Natasha Jowett on Villa Billy and Rebecca Johnson on Cat Balou. The event felt to run very smoothly thanks to all the volunteers and special mention goes to our own Laura Brennan who made the journey to volunteer to enable the team to compete.
