You may only ride on a team for one Riding Club in any year and must be a fully paid up member of that club and have an up to date flu vac. Please see our Flu vaccination rules. If you would like to be considered for one of our teams please contact the relevant team manager who would be delighted to hear from you.  The Club often contributes towards team entry fees.

Team selections & what is expected of our members

· We do ask that you are safely & confidently competing at the level / class you wish to be considered for or be competing at the level above.

· Performance: Are you training regularly, attending clinics or attending shows? Please do not be put off if questions are asked, we are just trying to get to know you & your horse.

· Commitment: Some contribution will be required if you are part of a team. Should you unfortunately have to withdraw once being selected, the full entry fee will be required unless you can provide a medical/vets certificate. It is your responsibility to attempt to find a suitable replacement which is then agreed by the team manager should you wish to avoid losing entry fees.

· Patience: Often qualifiers are all day affairs, so be prepared for long hours at an event. When you put yourself forward please block out the entire day for your competition as you are required to support other members competing and could also be required to stay for the final results & prize giving too. We ask all competitors to thank the venue organisers & please let your team manager/appointed person on the day know when you are leaving the venue.

· HELP: Often for Qualifiers / Championships we are asked to provide jump judges or helpers in order for us to compete. So if you are on a team please be aware that you will also be asked to be a volunteer someone for the day or you will need to volunteer for another team event so that they can compete. Helpers Vouchers will be provided and you will also be fed & watered at most events too. 

· Vaccinations: If it’s a Qualifier then your horse’s vaccinations must be up to date, showing correct initial jabs then one at least annually after that. You will NOT be allowed to compete at Qualifiers or Championships without up to date vaccinations, so don’t put yourself forward for a team event without checking them first. You also cannot have a vaccination or sedative within 7 days prior to a competition. *** Flu Vac Checker ***

· Requirements: Hats and Body Protectors must comply with the BRC rules and club clothing or colours must be worn. · BRC Rules:

· Information On Qualifiers & Championships for Area 11 can be found here
