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

We shall confirm the 2021 application process once lockdown restrictions have been eased.

Inter County Challenge

Sadly we were not able to run our Inter County Challenge in 2020, but we did run our County Challenges instead! Each county ran a Train and Test Day, with prizes, rosettes and glory for riders in Prelim, Novice and Elementary from each county.
