Ride for the Eastern Team

Whether you're a senior rider, youth rider, or para rider - there's lots of opportunities to compete for your region and fly your region colours! At the Home International, we have riders from Novice to PSG levels, the Inter Regionals covers Prelim to Medium. We also have County Teams who compete at the annual Inter County Challenge at Prelim, Novice and Elementary levels, and Quest teams are also active in the region - either Open or U21 teams from Intro to Novice, so there really is something for everyone! Each category has its own selection criteria and competitions that you can apply to be a part of.

How to apply

In 2020 you can apply to be a part of the regional teams through our BookWhen booking system.  

Inter County Challenge

Sadly we were not able to run our Inter County Challenge this year, but we are thrilled to announce our County Challenge instead!  Each county is running a Train and Test Day.  This will involve your County Trainers warming you up before you ride your test in front of a BD Judge.  Open to Bronze and Silver Prelim, Novice and Elementary riders, we are working on the details now and these events will be running in September in YOUR county to watch out here and on our Facebook page for more details.
