NEW - Members League Tables

We have always awarded prizes at the club's Annual General Meeting for most successful dressage, jumping members but this year we are trying to encourage more of you to take part in our competitions so we are introducing slightly new league tables. If you look on the website under the "league" tab for will see the results of all the 2014/5 leagues and awards then there is a NEW section below with all the latest league tables for the current 2015/6 season.:

So for the 2015/2016 season we are running a new members points league. The way you earn points will be the same  i.e. riders are given 6 points for a 1st place, 5 points for a 2nd, 4 points for a 3rd, etc, down to 1 point for a 6th place. If there are less than 6 competitiors in any class the points earnt will be reduced accordingly eg if there are only 2 in the class 1st will earn 2points and 2nd 1. The difference this year is that we are breaking the dressage down to Walk & Trot, Preliminary, Novice, Elementary and Junior sections in the dressage.

For the show jumpers and cross country riders it will be Seniors and Juniors. The points tables will be up-dated after each competition so that you can see how you are doing in each league.
