We are always looking out for riders to participate in teams to represent our club at Area competitions. It doesn’t matter what level you are in any discipline: if you can jump a clear round, especially at novice level then be in a team!, if you can perform a dressage test be in a team!, if you love XC be in a team! If you can do all three, horse trials watch out……
If you are interested, then please contact:- Sam for dressage and Lynne Addis for SJ, combined training, hunter and horse trials.
These are fantastic days out with other team members, and we certainly have the potential to give the other clubs a run for their money. We have a good laugh and the support we give each other is second to none.
To enter teams we have to provide helpers for all events; this has proved difficult in the past. To compete in an area 20 event you must either provide a named helper for the day or commit to help yourself at another area 20 competition. The nomination must be done when you enter. If you withdraw at the last moment you will still be expected to provide the helper or attend yourself. We hope you agree this is a fair system & that you will continue to support the club.
Flu vaccinations- You need an up to date vaccination record to compete in area 20 competitions. This will be checked by the chef dequipe before the competition & by the area 20 officials at the competition. Remember you should carry a copy of your horses passport when you travel your horse.
BRC Flu Vacc Regulations
Flu vaccination checker
Equine Influenza Excerpt from the rule book:
Each horse must have a valid vaccination certificate, which undeniably relates to that horse, completed, signed and stamped on each line by a veterinary surgeon, who is not the owner of the animal. It must state that the horse has received 2 injections for primary vaccination against Equine Influenza given no less than 21 days and no more than 92 days apart. (Only these first two injections must be given before a horse can compete). In addition a first booster injection must be given no less than 150 days and no more than 215 days after the 2nd injection of the primary vaccination. Subsequently, booster injections must be given at intervals of not more than 1 year apart, commencing with the first booster injection.
PLEASE NOTE….. There has been a change in the wording for the rules re-guarding the Flu Vac’s for BRC
G7: Equine Influenza Our equine influenza rules are based on the British Horseracing Authority Rules (formerly The Jockey Club Rules). Leap years will be ignored for an annual booster, but for the two primary injections and the first booster injection, the days must be counted and therefore a leap year would interfere with the correct number of days between injections.After the horse has had the 1st injection the 2nd should be between 21 and 92 days, the next one 150 days to 215 days then a annual.Leap years have been 2012. 2008. 2004, 2000, 1996, 1992, 1988, 1984, 1980 And remember no horse can compete in a qualifier or championship until the horse has had it’s first 2 injections and they can not have had a injection on any of the 7 days prior to a competition or entry into the competition stables.
