Area 11 Riding Club Team Events
Competing for West Surrey Riding Club
Compete in a WSRC team
Would you like to be part of a team representing West Surrey Riding Club at the Area’s National and Local (London & South East) Qualifiers?
All disciplines are included. If you fancy joining a WSRC team or entering as an individual (where available) for any of the Riding Club events, please contact the relevant team manager (see details on the Committee website page and the Newsletter). They’ll be able to tell you more about which tests/heights are used at each qualifier and sign you up. Please note for the National qualifiers, preliminary entries need to be with BRC Head Office 21 days before the event, so make sure you contact the team managers in good time if you’re interested in riding for us in any of these.
We really don’t only want people who are experienced in their discipline – we’re also very happy to include those who are just keen to have a go and who promise to turn up on the day! The Riding Club pays your team entries for you, these events aren’t cheap, so we need committment. If you’re in the local area when an event is on, why not drop in and support your team, there is normally always a picnic with nice cakes and prosecco!
"I would never have been brave enough to have competed on a team event if it hadn't been for all the support and encouragement I've had from this club, even when I've had a total meltdown on the day everyone has been so friendly and I've always come away feeling really positive. Oh and the picnics are fab too!!! Top club!!" Helen French
Keep an eye on our Area 11 web-site (www.brcarea11.org.uk) for more details, updates on details to be confirmed (tbc), and schedules in due time.

Riding Hat Standards & Tagging for 2018:
For any riding club qualifier or other team competition, you now need a new ‘aqua’ coloured hat tag. Good news - British Riding Clubs, British Eventing and The Pony Club have all agreed to use the same colour of hat tag. From now on you just need the one aqua coloured tag on your hat and it will be accepted by each of these organisations (so no need for multiple multicoloured hat tags!).
