Team Quest

Are you ready for Team Quest?
The newest sensation in Dressage

 

 This is the most exciting competition to hit the sport of Dressage in Great Britain for generations.

In 2014, British Dressage (BD)  launched a new competition for riders of all ages and abilities called ‘Team Quest’ (TQ). It's back for 2015 and will hopefully prove to be even bigger and better!

We’re looking for riders at Intro, Prelim and Novice to take part in a fun and relaxed dressage competition – even if you’ve never competed before. Teams of three or four riders will ride as individuals across the three test levels (any combination) and the best three scores count towards an overall team total, highest percentage wins the day. There are two age categories for teams; BYRDS teams (25yo and under) and Open (riders of any age).

Team Quest Rules

We've made a few changes to the TQ rules for 2015 by taking on your feedback and to ensure that the competition is as fun and fair as possible for everyone.  The new set of rules are available for you to read here.

 Still got some questions? Take a look at our TQ FAQs as they may have been asked before!

 

Team Quest Finals 

This year we are introducing Regional Finals in addition to our inaugral TQ National Final!

Each of the eight BD regions will have its own TQ leader board, at the end of the qualifying period (1st Feb 2015 - 31st August 2015) a Regional Final will be held in each region in September for the top 15 combinations in BYRDS & Open sections. The regional rankings are based on points and will only take the 5 best placings for each team into account. 

The top three teams of each section (BYRDS & Open) from each of the eight regional finals will qualify for our very special TQ National Final.

We’re excited to announce that after the success of our first ever Team Quest Final the National finals will once again be held at the brilliant venue, Bury Farm on 14 - 15 November! Bury Farm did an excellent job of welcoming all our teams and embracing the unique Team Quest atmosphere in 2014 and we cannot wait to invite our top teams of 2015 to another amazing championship experience next year!

For more information about qualification, please have a read through our set of rules for 2015.

All horses must have a minimum of a FREE Associate Horse Registration – simply complete the form and post into British Dressage along with a copy of the page in the horse's passport that proves it's name.


Team Registration

Got your friends together? Check.

Team colours at the ready? Check.

Invented the perfect name? Check.

Time to get your team registered with TQHQ!

Even if you registered your team in 2014 we will require you to register again for 2015.This is due to the new rule changes for this year, it's likely your team composition may have changed and we need all your BD numbers. But don't worry your team name from last year is reserved for you!

Simply fill in the Team Quest team registration form and send it back to us ensuring that all membership and registration numbers are included. Sending in your membership/horse registration forms in at the same time? No worries, we'll fill in your numbers once they've been processed - but let us know that they are on their way.

Please note, that only 3 reserve riders and horses are allowed for 2015. As we are asking all TQ riders to become paid British Dressage members, it doesn't seem fair to have too many of you on the sub bench. Got too many reserve riders? Make another team!

Don't forget to put forward your team's region, this is the regional leaderboard your points and ranking will be allocated to. Not sure which region you reside in? Take a look at our map of the BD regions.

Please return all Team Registration forms to: Team Quest, British Dressage, Building 2020, Copse Drive, Meriden, West Midlands. CV5 9RG or email them to Team Quest.

Once we've got your registration form and all your BD numbers, your team captain will receive an email from TQHQ to confirm that your team is registered and ready to go!
