Quest Club

  

      

Welcome to Quest Club!
The most fun you'll have doing dressage

 

  

In 2014, British Dressage (BD) launched a new competition for riders of all ages and abilities called ‘Team Quest’ (TQ). In 2018, the Kent & Masters Quest series is now even bigger and better with over 2000 riders taking part and riding down the centre line for their team. 

Team Quest is 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! There are two age categories for teams; Under 21 (for riders up to the end of the year of their 21st birthday) and Open (riders of any age). Teams of three or four riders will ride as individuals across any of the three test levels and the best three scores count towards an overall team total, with the highest team total winning the competition. Your team will be awarded Team Quest points based on your team's best five placings and will be ranked on a regional leaderboard, which takes the top teams forward to a Regional Final and then the National Championships!
 

 

My Quest is an exciting initiative for riders competing at Intro, Prelim or Novice level. The competition league is for individuals and runs alongside Team Quest, again with sections for Open and Under 21. My Quest follows the same regional structure as Team Quest, with regional leaderboards taking the top riders to a Regional Final and then the National Championships.

Riders will earn My Quest points according to the percentage they achieve. A rider's five best My Quest percentages and resulting My Quest points will then feed into the regional leaderboard for each section (Open and Under 21) at each level.

Remember you can take part in both Team Quest and My Quest! You can even qualify at multiple levels for My Quest.

Team Quest points are allocated as per the team's placing as per the below scale:

Don't forget only the five best Team Quest placings count towards your points total! So once you've been out more than five times your total won't include the points gained from your lowest placing(s).
