Arena Eventing is a great opportunity to have a go at eventing if you don’t really fancy dressage!

We’ve got together with British Eventing to create a series of competitions at an introductory level but which culminate in a grand final at a renowned international event.

 

What do I have to do?

In this two-phase, arena-based competition, you jump a course of BE90 or BE100 show jumps and then XC fences. The aim is to complete based on an optimum time of 375m/min for the XC phase*.

*The optimum time is agreed with the course designer depending upon the size and terrain of the arena

Qualifying events are held all over the country between 1st January to 30th June 2016.

League table qualification could see you at the Championships at Blair Castle International (25th to 28th August 2016) or Blenheim Palace International (8th to 11th September 2016) three-day events!

The Kent & Masters Arena Eventing league tables are shown on the British Eventing website. Take a look at them here LINK www.britisheventing.com/arenaeventing

Although this is a national championship series, we have tried to keep it as simple as possible so newcomers to eventing can compete without feeling intimidated. Here is a brief summary of the rules:

 

Classes run at BE90 & BE100 Level and there’s one section run at each height.

Classes are unrestricted and are open to everyone, members and non-members alike.

Riders of all ages and horses of any height may compete in the qualifiers.

To compete at the Championships both horses and competitors must meet the minimum eligibility requirements for BE membership and horse registration: Competitors must be at least in the year of their 12th birthday and horses must be at least 142cms in height.

Each venue runs their own event under their own rules and any results queries are dealt with by the venue directly. All riders must abide by the rules and terms and conditions set out for each venue.

There is a link to each venue's website from British Eventing’s main Arena Eventing page on the British Eventing website www.britisheventing.com/arenaeventing

 

Prizes

If you come 1st-5th at a qualifier, you’ll get a Kent & Masters rosette and BE Arena Eventing League points that count towards the leaderboard placings. If there are more than 49 starters in the class, points are awarded to 10th place (see the table below)

The top 40 riders from each League Table compete at the Championships. You will automatically be placed in the Championship league nearest to the venue you competed and gained points. You must advise BE if you wish to attend a specific Championship within 7 days of the competition where you gained your points. Riders cannot swap from league to league.

 

In the event of equal league table points it will be decided on a competitor's highest placings. This decision will be made by British Eventing and is final.

There are no substitutions for the Championships.

 

So, what are you waiting for?
Get out there and compete!
