2019/20 BRC NAF Interdressage League

We know lots of you enjoy dressage, but did you know that BRC and Interdressage run an online competition league, covering dressage and a number of other disciplines, over the winter months. Which is open to all BRC Clubs and Riding Club Centres, now with great monthly NAF prizes too. The League started in October and ends on 30 April 2020. It has been designed to encourage more BRC Riding Club and Riding Club Centre members to ‘Give Interdressage a Go,’ by making it possible for you to ride your tests/classes in a relaxed manner from the comfort of familiar surroundings. Making this suitable for absolutely any level of rider, from the true beginner to the more advanced competitor.


All you need is an arena, or fairly flat, marked out field and a friend to film your test, then just upload to YouTube and enter via the Interdressage website: www.interdressage.com. It is even possible with a camera and tripod to record your own test.


As well as Dressage at various levels, Interdressage offers Baroque Dressage, Style Jumping, Ridden and In Hand Showing, plus Practical Horsemanship and Handy Horse classes, and from time to time a number of fun Novelty classes, including a charity Hobby Horse Dressage class! All the tests are professionally judged, with comprehensive feedback and cost just £12.00 per class to enter. So a huge range of great value classes to have a go at. This year, each month NAF will be awarding the highest placed BRC Interdressage individual competitor with a special prize. At the end of the League we will be awarding fabulous BRC rosettes for the winning Riding Club / Riding Club Centre and a wonderful overall individual prize from our sponsor NAF, plus a rosette and sash. In addition the highest placed four winning Club/Centre riders and overall winning individual rider will be invited to lunch and a presentation at the BRC NAF Five Star National Horse Trials Championships, at Swalcliffe Park Equestrian, in August 2020.


All the monthly Interdressage classes also have rosettes up to 10th place, with prize money awarded too, and you could be competing Internationally with riders from all over the World taking part. There is a great social Interdressage Facebook page for any questions or tips and advice. It really is an ideal way for those not confident enough to go out competing to start competing. Or a great way of trying out a more advanced level, or just to keep practising over the winter months for those more experienced competitors not wanting to venture too far. And the beauty of it all is you can compete when you want, where you want, and you don’t have to be particularly smart or have a super clean horse, absolutely ideal for the winter months!

Members Free Training Day?

Free Members Training Days………what are your thoughts ?

Dear HDRC members,

We are looking into holding some members days throughout the year.

This would involve a good get together with your horses and getting free training.

To qualify per training day you must have completed 2 half day helps.

So the questions are…..

What type of training do you want?  Would have to be arena based.

Which coaches do you want?

Where do you think would be a good venue?

It obviously has to be good value for the club, so no really expensive coaches! Not sure Ingrid Klimke would come! ����

If anyone has any fantastic facilities we can have cheaply or free please let me know! But probably need min of two arenas one being big enough to jump in.

This is just about testing the water, as these things take much time and effort to organise, so bear with me.

If you want to be involved start getting your helps in !����

Answers on a postcard please! To michawilkinson@hotmail.com.



EGM Results

As a result of the EGM last night the clubs membership will now run from 1st January - 31st December for future years.

2019 EGM

Monday 9th September

Mount Pleasant Farm
Parish Lane
Pease Pottage
RH10 5NY
at 7.30pm

All members are invited to an EGM to vote on the change of members year to run from 1st January to 31st December.

This change is being bought about following a BRC Advisory Meeting and BRC HQ wanting the membership year to run in line with the BRC financial year. BRC want every club to run in line with HQ which makes for a smoother and more efficient way of working, not only for accounting and insurance purposes but also for administration purposes. All clubs will have the same financial and membership year making BRC more clear and consistent throughout the whole of the membership.

The change to membership year means we need to change the constitution which can't be done without votes from members. If you agree to this change your current membership will extend to the end of 2019, giving you 3 months free extended membership.
If you aren't able to attend we can accept email votes - caroline.exley@talk21.com

Team Competitions - 2019

As a club we love to encourage members at all levels to take part in team competitions.

Dressage goes from Preliminary up to Advanced Medium, show jumping from 70cm to 110cm and horse trials from 80cm to 100+

The club pays half the entry fee at the qualifier. With the exception of horse trials we also enter non-qualifier teams if you want to take part but don't want to travel to a Championship.The team organiser will take care of all the entry forms and be there on the day to offer support and encouragement. All we ask in return is that you help or provide a helper for a few hours. It's a great way to meet new like minded people and hopefully have some fun.

For full details of whats involved and who to contact take a look at the 'Teams' page of the website.


Dates for this year:-

Horse Trials qualifier at Coombelands on 1st June - Championship at Swalcliffe, 2nd - 4th August

Dressage qualifier at East Byshee on 30th June - Championship at Lincoln 31st Agust - 1st September
