The Championships include a wide range of dressage classes ranging from Introductory right the way up to Advanced Medium. 

Riding Test

The riding test is similar to a dressage test, but marks are awarded according to the rider’s performance (effectiveness and presentation of the test), and the horse’s paces are not considered. This competition can be ridden as an individual or as part of a team; For senior teams, two members ride the Prelim RT and the other two ride the Novice RT. Junior team members all ride Prelim RT.

Show Jumping

The 70cm, 80cm and 90cm are all split in to juniors and seniors with the 100cm and 105cm being mixed classes. 

Style Jumping

Style jumping is similar to show jumping, but marks are based on the rider’s performance and effectiveness rather than the horse's. There is a 75cm class and an 85cm class for this competition and is split into juniors and seniors. Individuals and teams may compete in this class; teams must have two riders ride at 75cm and two ride at 85cm.

Direct Entry

Direct entry classes are ones which do not require any qualification and may be added nearer the event. Entries for these can be made through Sport80, and will be available on the entry page, in the same place as the Championship classes.
