If you are interested in joining us at BRC Area Qualifiers please read the following then see below for more details of the training and competitions that are available to you as a White Rose Riding Club Member.
• Please note that the BRC rules state that anybody ‘entering Area Qualifiers must be willing & able to compete at the Championships should they qualify.’ There are National Championships for all Qualifiers. The Combined Training, Summer Dressage & SJ are also Qualifiers for the Northern Regional Championship. The details of all Championships, i.e dates/venues are on the BRC website/Area 4 website.
• White Rose have to provide volunteers to help run the area qualifiers. We usually have to help at the show jumping & combined training (held at Bishop Burton early in the year) as well as providing fence judges at the show cross & horse trials, and helpers for the Northern Championship & National Championships. The helpers can be doing anything from tack checking, dressage writing, car parking, passport checking - you don’t need horse knowledge!
Following discussion with the committee, from now on, anybody wishing to be part of a team MUST provide the name of a helper to be considered.
"IF YOU WISH TO HELP but don’t know a team member - please LET ME KNOW & I’ll put your name on my list! If you wish to compete & don’t have friends/family willing to help - find a friend from the club! If you can’t find anybody at all as a helper I will have to put you down as the helper instead of a rider for one event each. Thanks!" - Sophie

If you wish to be considered for one of the club teams you will need to attend some of the training sessions. Additional training may be organised for team members. If you are selected to represent the club, then you will need to be able to provide a helper for the day of the event. Riding Club Area Qualifiers and Regional and National Championships are run by volunteers. Each club is expected to provide a number of people to help with a variety of jobs including jump judging, writing for dressage, car parking, stewarding, tack checking, vaccination checking, or pole picking for example.
WRRC try to run teams for as many British Riding Clubs competitions as possible. We have both Junior and Senior teams and also enter members as Individuals in various disciplines. We go to Team Events where we compete against other Riding Clubs both Locally and Nationally, travelling to Richmond, Lincoln, Bishop Burton and Port Royal amongst other places, and further afield if we qualify for the Nationals.
