Do you compete your ex-racehorse in affiliated dressage competitions?

If so, you may already have qualified for the final of the Racehorse to Dressage Horse series in association with Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) and be in with a chance of winning the first prize of £300.

Now in its second year, the series which runs from prelim to elementary level, concludes in the final next month which takes place at Vale View Equestrian Centre, Nr Melton Mowbray, Leics, alongside their Winter High Profile Show from 8 November to 10 November.

Those who haven’t yet qualified have until 28 October to do so.

How to qualify

- Combinations must earn two qualifying test sheets with a percentage of 62% [or above] at the level at which they wish to compete.

- Qualifying can come from Open, Restricted or Training sections and there are no rider restrictions on qualifying i.e. a group 6 rider could qualify using sheets from non-qualifying prelim sections.

- Qualifying sheets can be used from 1 January 2012 to 28 October 2012.

- The dressage tests for the final are Class 1 P19, Class 2 N35 and Class 3 E53.

- There is a prize fund of £2,000 (1st £300, 2nd £200, 3rd £100 in each or the three sections), which includes rugs to each of the winners
