Championships beckon for British Riding Club members

The British Riding Clubs (BRC) National Championships are to take place at Lincolnshire Show Ground, just outside the city itself, on 17 and 18 September 2011.

A vast number of the movement’s 36,000 strong membership have competed at Area Qualifiers to get to these prestigious Championships, the largest in the BRC Championship calendar, which is once again sponsored by Natural Animal Feeds, with Tredstep and Equilibrium also sponsoring prizes in specific classes.

More than 1,800 competitors have qualified to compete over this weekend in a variety of classes, including Novice, Intermediate and Open Show Jumping, Novice and Open Dressage, Medium Dressage, Pairs Dressage, Rural Riders Dressage (teams of six), Style Jumping and Riding Test, plus the In The Pink Veteran Championship for both horses and ponies.

With 13 dressage arenas and five jumping rings, there is no shortage of classes to keep even the most discerning spectator entertained. The Senior Championships will take place on Saturday 17 September, with the Junior Championships and the Veteran Classes on Sunday.

Admission is free and there will be trade stands and public catering available all day.
