Members' will be receiving their 2019 Handbook any day now with a bumper Issue 7 of the BD magazine with all our Nationals, Senior WEG and U25 Euros action.  The new rules come into effect on 1 December so you have a few weeks to get studying - remember there are new dressage tests and changes to a couple of Freestyles too.

We've also uploaded the online pdf version for you to download or view on the go. 

On that page, there's also a synopsis of rule changes/additions for the year so you can easily see what's different - well worth taking five minutes out to read carefully so you know what might impact on your competing.

We've changed the flow this time so it follows what you need to compete - essentially what you need, what you can do, entering, competing and qualifying for championships. With the help of a volunteer Working Party, we've tried to group things together better, remove contradictions and simplify areas. 

Plus, we've given the eligibility charts a huge make over - they're now flow charts with yes or no answers - answer yes anywhere long the path and you need to move to the next section/level.  You can also download these on the Rules page by section, level or as sets for BD leves or Quest. 

If you like to have additional copies of the Members' Handbook, they're available to buy in the BD shop.

Remember you can provide your views or ask questions via the our feedback email.
