| The League Tables:
The test leagues allow all of our centres to compete to see who can issue the most Introductory and Progressive Tests or Rosette Awards completed in Stable Management and Equitation over the course of a year.
There is a regular table of results for both leagues, with the eventual top three receiving prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places as well as a trophy to the overall winners.
| How do they work?
The Test league is based upon the number of successful ABRS+ Progressive and Introductory Tests or Rosette Awards completed by each centre in both the Stable Management and Equitation tests. These tests allow riders to develop their riding and handling skills in a structured manner. Find out more here.
You can download the syllabi for the tests, and order rosettes and other test resources in the Member Area
To take into account varied reopenings and difficulty for centres to run the tests under ‘normal’ conditions over the past 18 months, we have extended the first league period to cover all tests and awards taken until 31st March 2022 giving everyone ample time to get back up and running a fair chance at getting tests underway in previous numbers.
Due to the reduction in test numbers this year, we are running a single amalgamated league table for the Progressive Tests (ie not split into Stable Management and Equitation as in previous years).
| Get Involved
At present, the ability to offer tests and rosette awards are only open to Approved Riding Centre members. We are currently considering options for Certified and Approved livery yard members to be able to offer the tests and rosette awards under certain conditions.
