New Championships - all you need to know

After our announcement earlier this year, British Dressage is proud to release the full details of the first ever Bronze Championships and Music Championships, which will be held in the summer of 2018 – venue and date TBC.

Bronze Championships
What levels can I compete at?
Combinations can qualify for the Championships in the Bronze section at the following levels:

>  Prelim
>  Novice
>  Elementary
>  Medium
>  Advanced Medium

How do I qualify?
Qualification is from 1 October 2017 to 31 July 2018 with combinations competing in regular BD competitions. A combination’s five best scores achieved during the qualification period will be displayed on national league tables, one table per level with the top 30 from each qualifying through to the Championships.

Points will be allocated according to the percentages gained (as per the Members’ Handbook), e.g. 60.34% = 1 point, 67.62% = 4 points.

There is no minimum number of scores and although a maximum of five scores will count, combinations can continue to compete to improve their scores during the qualification period and the league table will be refreshed to reflect this. In the event that there is a tie at any level, the highest average of a combination’s best five marks will be used.

Can I compete at different levels?
Combinations may qualify at no more than two consecutive levels. To qualify, the combination must be eligible for the Bronze section at their chosen level, please check the Members’ Handbook to ensure your eligibility.

How do I know when I have qualified?
Once the qualification period has ended, those that have qualified will receive an email invitation to the Championships. If a combination cannot attend the Championships for whatever reason, they must inform the office as soon as possible as qualification will move to the next eligible combination.
