Following a meeting of the committee for clarification on Rule 29 of the Club rules. Which states:
Competitors must enter in your own name. It is against club rules to use a membership in someone else’s name for a different rider or handler. If this is found out any placing in a class will be disqualified. In In-Hand classes the runner must be the member or entrant on the sheet. If for medical reasons the member cannot run and a substitute is required, this needs to be approved by the committee in advance and the member must be present at the ring during the class when the approved substitute is used.
The committee reviewed a decision made at the June show to allow a substitute rider and also a recent request. On reviewing and discussing these it was felt that allowing substitute riders was not a fair practice for competitors and not allowed by the rule stated above, which is the current rule in the schedule.
Therefore the points award in June will be reclassified to the actual rider and no substitute riders will be allowed.
Also it was voted that in 2020 rule amendment substitute handlers will also not be allowed next year.
If you believe you may have qualified for STARS 2019 after your class on Sunday, please come and see John at the Caravan.
- You must be a member.
- You must be the points winner of the class after this Sunday Show (after consultation with STARS there is no minimum no of show attendances for the combination)
You will need to pay you entry fee of £20 per class and £4 first aid per competitor so that the club can do your entry.
This year the club will buy all Competitors a STARS / BDRC 2019 Hoodie so we will also need to know your size when you enter.
See you all Sunday.
Today’s show – 28th July 2019 – is cancelled due to safety concerns caused by the heavy rain. See you all in August
It is with regret that due to lack of entries the Arena Evening on Sunday 14th April has been cancelled.
All horses and ponies must be vaccinated when attending the show. They must have had at least the first two inoculations as a minimum (if you are starting new), and they must continue to have the yearly boosters.
Passports must be shown at the designated desk next to the booking in caravan prior to booking in your classes. You should complete your entry form as normal and present this with your passport at the desk, entry form must match with the name on the passport and the entry form will be stamped to show the booking in team that passport has been shown.
Failure to produce a valid passport will mean you will not be allowed to enter and will be requested to leave the showground.
Please remember that it is a legal requirement to have your Horse/Pony Passport with you when travelling and attending the show.
