CRITERIA FOR CHATSWORTH & BRAMHAM SELECTION

  • 2 training sessions must have been attended 
  • performance at training
  • child’s attitude towards helpers, traniners, other parents, other riders and venue owners/staff
  • performance in previous shows at the same level (on horse wishing to compete not previous horses/ponies)
  • child’s ability to work as a team and be supportive of other riders.

As you are all aware these teams at these events are prestigious and many people wish to have a place, unfortunately not everyone will get their chance but we strive to always give riders a chance, and if it’s not to be this time other opportunities will arise.

Due to the high demand one rider will NOT be able to compete at both competitions and must choose between which they prefer.
