    BRC Dressage 16th June

    There is a BRC Dressage event running on the 16th June, the event allows for team and individual entries. We would like O&DRC to be represented as we were last year, therefore I am looking for members to put themselves forward, we also need some stewards for the event.
    I have picked some classes from the schedule which I believe will suit ODRC members, if you want to take part there is a register link below that allows you to register for the event, by registering you are saying you are able to attend.

    Senior Open Dressage - Team & Individual
    Class 1
    Novice 23* (2012)
    Novice 27 (2007)
    Novice 30 (2006)

    Senior Prelim Dressage -Team & Individual
    Class 5
    Prelim 13 (2006)

    Team of 4 = £70 , so £17.50 per rider and £19.50 individual.
    Fees include BRC preliminary fee and NLG fee
    Payment will be required prior to the event, this will be able to be done online via our booking site or via BACS.
    We are going to need at least three stewards to help on the day, so if you don't wish to compete, please let me know if you are able to steward for us. Without stewards we cannot enter the event, to register as a steward follow the registration link below.
    Participants must be ODRC members, whose horse is fully vaccinated, has a passport and eligible in conjunction with the relevant BRC rules. Call me if you need clarification
    BRC entries close 20th May, so I need riders to register ASAP to allow time to get the processes in place.
    If you wish to attend the event follow the link below, it is a very quick process. Once I have collected registrations I will contact riders and stewards with further information. It is a great opportunity to represent your club at an area event.
