Our BD Quest Club affiliated competitions begin with indoor dressage on Sat1st & Sat 15th April and then through the summer… at Warwick Hall on Sunday’s 28th May, 25th June and 6th Aug. For full details on ‘what’s it all about’ for individuals going for MyQuest and for teams for TeamQuest, look no further than here:
BD Quest Club is for riders at Intro, Prelim and Novice levels wishing to take part in a fun and relaxed dressage competition – even if they’ve never competed before. There are relaxed rules and dress, sections for Open and Under 18 riders and rider will be competing against others of a similar ability. My Quest & Team Quest will follow the same progression, with regional leaderboards taking the top riders to regional and then a national final. For Team Quest, teams of three or four riders will ride as individuals across the three test levels (any combination) and the best three scores count towards an overall team total, with the highest percentage winning the day. Riders will earn ‘Quest points’ according to the percentage they acheive to the same scale as other BD competitions. A rider’s five best results and resulting Quest points will then feed into the regional leaderboard for each section (Open and Under 18s) and at each level (Intro to Novice).
Quest Club membership allows a rider to ride in Team Quest and My Quest comps, music qualifier classes, attend British Dressage regional training and have a go at Prelim classes in the Bronze and Gold sections at all BD affiliated competitions! Riders also get a membership card and a goodie-filled membership pack when they first join – and all this for only £30! The form for joining as a Club member is available to download from the page link above. Full BD members are also welcome to take part in Quest competitions as long as they are eligible for the Bronze section at Intro to Novice.
A team registration form is also available to download from the web page. These competitions are generously sponsored by Kent & Masters Saddlers.
There will be an introductory meeting to explain all very soon to be taken by Ade Lannigan from British Dressage.
