Petplan Equine Area Festival Finals

Petplan Equine Area Festival Finals

We're on final countdown for the start of our first ever Petplan Equine Area Festival Finals!  The new format is proving popular with participation up 13% in the Area Festivals so far and the Final venues reporting great entries.  In anticipation of the first Finals, here's the lowdown on qualification on to the Petplan Equine Area Festival Championships at Hartpury next April.

Numbers Qualifying from Petplan Equine Area Festival Finals
 
1) The number qualifying from each Area Festival Final class will depend on the number of starters in that particular class, according to the conversion charts. The number of qualifications per level varies according to the total number of horses qualified for the Area Festival Finals and the number of spaces available at the Petplan Equine Area Festival Championships.
 
2) Combinations scoring below 63% will not be eligible for qualification for the Petplan Equine Area Festival Championship as stated in the British Dressage Rule Book, unless it's by a wild card.
 
3) A ‘starter’ is a horse that actually enters the competition arena and goes down the centre line, even if it withdraws before finishing.
 
4) The number of starters will not be known until the class is finished, after which the organiser will calculate how many have qualified and mark them on the scoreboard. The number of direct qualifications will be announced at the prize giving. Everyone who has qualified must collect a qualification certificate from the secretary before leaving the showground. 
 
5) Official entry packs will be emailed / posted to the rider directly from the BD Office in plenty of time for entries to be made to the Petplan Equine Area Festival Championship in April 2018.
 
6) The names of the combinations awarded wild cards will be put on the BD website. These spaces will be filled by the highest scoring unqualified combinations from all the Area Festival Finals. The rider will be notified by the office that they’ve been given a wild card and their qualification pack will be sent by post.
