Competing for your Club

If you would like to have a go at competing for the club at an Area qualifier, details of upcoming competitions can be found below. Please read the details for each competition, including level, eligibility of horse and rider, costs, venues and who to contact.

We are a friendly club and want to encourage all members to compete for us in a sociable yet competitive atmosphere with the intention of having fun.

We don't have team selection nor do you have to wait to be invited on to a team - if you want to have a go we would love to hear from you!Usually there is a lovely picnic and often a glass of wine or G&T in the lorry park during the day!

To compete for our club at an Area Qualifier, you must be a fully paid-up member of our club, your horse's passport and vaccinations must be correct and up to date, and your entry fees have to have been received by the event team manager by the close of entry. 

More information on British Riding clubs, BRC health and safety, Flu Vacc record checking, downgrading your horse and the 2019 rule book can be found on our British Riding Clubs Page.

ENTRY INFORMATION 

Terms of Entry: As a club when we enter Area qualifier events there are two sets of entries. Prelim entries are payable direct to the BRC and then club entries are payable to who-ever is organising the competition.
As a member all the entry fees charged to you are subsidised by the club to help keep events affordable (generally by the club paying the prelim entry fees).
However once prelim entries are made we are liable for the whole cost of entry even if no-one fills the space. Sadly for riding clubs vet and doctors certificates do not get any return of entry fees.

As a consequence the following terms of entry have been discussed and agreed by the VWH committee:

1. Once you commit to a team manager that you wish to enter a competition you must ensure your entry reaches the team manager (by cheque in the post) or the club account ( VWH Riding Club, Sort code: 30-92-06Account number: 00028639) by the close of prelim entries (24 days prior to the competition). Only once payment is received will your entry be processed.
2. If the member cancels their entry outside of 24 days before the event, the member will receive a full refund.
3. If the member cancels their entry after the close of entries and their place can be filled with another member they will receive a refund and the replacement will cover the cost of the entry.

4. If a member cancels their entry after the close of prelim entries and their place can not be filled they will receive no refund from the club.
