Just two weeks remain for combinations to secure their last minute qualification points for the Winter Regional Championships with a 31 December deadline. With the COVID pandemic disrupting the summer season extensively, the decision was taken to roll any part or full qualifications into the winter period.

Qualification emails for those who've completed their points tally are on their way to riders and owners and all should be out by the end of this week. Remember, you can enter without your email as all entries are verified by head office prior to the Regional competitions.

Venue change

We’ve had a change of venue for our first regional and competitors in the Central area now have Vale View in Leicestershire 4 – 7 January as their location. Vale View will also now host a High Profile show 8 – 10 January to kick the summer season off in style for many. The changes are as a result of Addington currently taking time out of the BD calendar.

Sport Operations Manager Lou Jones commented; “I’d like to thank Julie Hyslop and her team at Vale View for stepping in to host the Regionals and High Profile show. The facilities and competition experience at Vale View are first rate and I’m sure all the riders will be made to feel welcome. We will continue to work with the management Addington in a bid for BD competitions to return in the future.”
