There are just a few rules which apply to all riders, so that we can continue to use this excellent facility.
We run our tests according to BD rules using BD listed judges. We are friendly and encouraging, so new dressage riders do come and have a go.
The arena can be open for ten minutes before the Intro test, (please request this via EntryMaster) when you are welcome to walk round the arena to introduce your horse to the boards, markers, flowers etc
The BRC rules can be found on the BHS website www.bhs.org.uk.
The walk/trot tests are restricted, if you win the Winter or Summer trophy then you are kindly asked to move to prelim level or to compete at Intro HC
Members may compete in the first prelim till they accumulate 35 points; after this they may continue to compete in the second prelim (Open prelim) Non members who win twice must then compete HC
Arena Walks. Available before the Intro starts. Please request at time of entry. Arena walks are strictly ridden and in walk only. No leading of horses is permitted. Riders may go round the arena twice, on the right rein only. Riders to keep space between each other at all times. The steward will allow in 3 riders at any one time
