The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show (13 - 17 June) is holding young horse classes in their schedule for 2018. The classes, for five, six and seven year olds, will act as viewing opportunities for the Senior Selectors to spot potential combinations for selection for the World Young Dressage Horse Championships in Ermelo (NED), 2 - 5 August.

In order to be considered to compete at Bolesworth in any of the young horse classes, combinations should be scoring 80% and above in 5 & 6 year old FEI Preliminary/Final tests, or 70% or above in 7 year old FEI Preliminary/Final tests / PSG or Advanced 105 from 1January 2018 up until 25 May 2018, when the Bolesworth applications close.

The FEI Preliminary tests are used as part of the five and six year old Hickstead British Young International Dressage Horse qualifiers held this year at:

Keysoe, Bedfordshire, 27 - 29 Apr
Addington, Buckinghamshire, 11 - 13 May
Somerford, Cheshire, 25 - 28 May
