Area 9 Competitions
If you would like to have a go at competing for the club at an Area Qualifier, details of upcoming competitions can be found below. Please read the details for each competition, including level, eligibility criteria for horse and rider, costs, venues and who to contact.
We are a friendly club and want to encourage all members to compete for us in a sociable yet competitive atmosphere with the intention of having fun!
We don't have team selection nor do you have to wait to be invited on to a team - if you want to have a go we would love to hear from you! Usually there is a lovely picnic and often a glass of wine or G&T in the lorry park during the day!
To compete for our club at an Area Qualifier, you must be a fully paid-up member of our club, your horse's passport and vaccinations must be correct and up to date, and your entry fees have to have been received by the event team manager by the close of entry.
For more information on British Riding Clubs, BRC health and safety, Flu Vaccinations, downgrading your horse and the 2019 rule book please have a look at our “BRC Info” page.
Our entry terms and conditions are at the bottom of this page, please check these before you enter.
Terms & Conditions of Entry:
As a club when we enter Area qualifier events there are two sets of entries. Prelim entries are payable direct to BRC and then club entries are payable to the competition organiser.
As a member of VWH RC all the entry fees charged to you are subsidised by the club to help keep events affordable (generally by the club paying the prelim entry fees).
However, once prelim entries are made we are liable for the whole cost of entry even if no-one fills the space. Unfortunately for RC, vet and doctor’s certificates do not get any return of entry fees.
As a consequence the following terms of entry have been discussed and agreed by the VWH committee:
Once you commit to a team manager that you wish to enter a competition you must ensure your entry reaches the team manager (by cheque in the post) or the club account (VWH Riding Club, sort code: 30-92-06, account number: 00028639) by the close of prelim entries (24 days prior to the competition). Only once payment is received will your entry be processed.
If the member cancels their entry outside of 24 days before the event, the member will receive a full refund.
If the member cancels their entry after the close of entries and their place can be filled with another member they will receive a refund and the replacement will cover the cost of the entry.
If the member cancels their entry after the close of prelim entries and their place cannot be filled they will not receive any refund.
