The BRC Grassroots Points league has had a complete re-vamp for 2020. Two new sections have been added to the league- Combined Training and Cross-Country to the already existing Dressage and Show Jumping sections. Please note this league is only for clubs events and not BRC qualifiers and championships! Members will need to fill out their league card, and send it to BRC HQ by the 7th of the following month. The score cards can be found here for Dressage and Combined Training and here for Show Jumping and Cross Country. The league will commence on 1 January 2020 and finish on 31 October 2020.

  • The Show Jumping height has been changed from 60cm- 70cm to 50cm- 60cm (starting height). This is due to the new 70cm classes being added to the BRC championships. To be eligible to compete horses should have 0 full BS and BE points and no BS club points at 80cm or above.
  • The Dressage section has remained the same as 2019 and it if for riders competing at Intro and Prelim and must not have any BD points. 
  • Combined Training is the new addition to the league and includes riders competing in Intro or Prelim classes with a jumping height of 50cm-60cm SJ. 
  • The Cross- Country section is another addition to the GR league and this for 50cm-60cm classes. Arena Eventing, Hunter Trials and One-Day Event will also count towards the league. Horses may not have any BE points- full or foundation. 

The BRC Volunteer league has remained the same as previous years and it requires BRC volunteers to write down their volunteer work and work out how many hours they have volunteered for. There are 3 sections to the league and what league you are entered in depends on the type of work that has been done (members can be added into multiple sections). Full details on the different sections can be found by following the link below. Members will need to fill in their forms and send it to BRC HQ by the 7th  of the following month. The league will commence on 1 January 2020 and finish on 31 October 2020.
