Area 2 Qualifier and Championship Competitions

Yarm & District Saddle club are now taking part in the RoR (Retraining of Racehorses) Riding Club Challenge. Please see the above link for more information on how to qualify in our competitions.


There are two main types of area competitions run over the year:-

Winter/Summer league competitions.

This is a series of different competitions including dressage, riding test, show jumping, etc. Clubs are invited to enter teams in each competition and points are awarded at each leg. The Club with the most points after all legs wins the trophy. These competitions are aimed at riders and horses of all levels and have various restrictions.


Clubs may enter teams and in some cases individuals, the winners of each competition going on to represent the area at different National Championships.

Please note there are new rules on the flu cert of horses that can be found in the 'important information' tab. For all Area competitions members must have an up to date and correct Flu Certificate which they will need to show along with their membership cards on declaring. Failure to do so will result in them not being allowed to take part. If you wish to compete in any area competitions you need to send an up to date copy of your Flu cert to Nicky. She will then check it in order to save any embarrassment at area.
