ABRS+ Winter Jumping Competition

Posted on 27th November 2023


ABRS+ is pleased to announce a new opportunity that ABRS+ members can offer clients across the Winter months:

The ABRS+ Winter Jumping Championship

The Championship, which will be run remotely using the Equi-Rider platform (www.equi-rider.com/en), will have three 3 classes (40cm, 60cm and 80cm) and be run in 3 stages (January, February and March 2024).

Using the Equi-Rider will allow all ABRS+ members to participate in this fun competition but without the need to travel.  All you need to provide is the arena (40m x 20m), 18 poles and 16 stands and we will provide you with a standard diagram of the jumping course that will allow all competitors to jump the same course.  You video each participant jumping the course on your phone, pay the entry fee and upload the video.  Equi-Rider will verify and validate all entries and the results will be published on an ABRS+ Jumping Competition Page and the ABRS+ Facebook Page.

At the end of each Stage, riders will be award competition points based on the best entry that they submitted in that stage.  Prizes will be awarded at a prize giving ceremony for the best 8 riders in each class.   Competition points will also accumulate across the 3 stages, leading to an eventual overall winner in each class and prizes for the best 3 riders in each class.  We have over £2500 of prizes to give out, with prizes in the form of vouchers that can be spend online for saddlery or riding items (with a choice of prizes for riders).  The riding school with the highest points will also receive a prize.

Entries will cost £7 per entry, but it will be up to ABRS+ members to decide how clients are charged.

To take part please register on https://www.equi-rider.com/en/register and we will send you a full package of instructions on how to participate.  To take part in the January 2024 Stage, please register before Christmas.  We also plan a short zoom meeting on Tuesday 12 Dec 23 at 18.30 hrs to explain how the competition will be run and to allow you to ask questions.  To attend the Zoom please register here.

We are really excited to offer this competition and, if successful, we will widen it in future months to include Dressage and Le Trek.  We hope you are as excited as we are and will support this initiative.
