Area 1 Novice Winter Dressage Qualifier – 26th November 2017

Many thanks to Edinburgh and District for the smooth running of the Novice Winter Dressage Qualifier.

Thanks to an excellent entry two teams will be invited to the Championships, plus the highest placed rider outwith the Qualifying teams from each arena.

The Championships will be held at Arena UK, Grantham, on the 13th and 14th April.

Several EDRC members secured some excellent prizes for the riders, from Fiona Brims Photography whose photoshoot went to an Ettrick Forrest Riding Association rider.  With Feed Vouchers from Tarf and Harbro, lesson vouchers from Karon Carson Equestrian, a “That Portrait” voucher, E dressage and Haygrazer by Haygrazer.co.uk and show rug and rug wash vouchers from Lynnie Kilgallon at Speedy rug cleaning and Supreme Show rugs. Her phone number is  07751 795584 and her facebook links are:

Mark Todd Collection belt, Whispering Horses voucher and head bands from our main sponsors KBIS.  Our thanks to all sponsors.
Photography during the day was by Fiona Brims and colleagues, so visit her website for memories of Area 1 Novice Winter dressage at SNEC.
Thank you to all volunteers, some who had no direct connection with the Riding Club movement but enjoy horses, judges, BRC stewards, caterers and first aid gentlemen.
All the volunteers from score collectors, poo pickers to scorers, stewards, writers and judges all worked together to produce a successful day’s dressage. EDRC and SDG would also like to thank SNEC for use of the facilities.

BRC – Volunteer Leagues 2018

2018 welcomes a brand new league for our BRC volunteers.  There will be a variety of leagues running at different levels, these will be as below:

Club League
Club level will be for volunteers who help at club activities run under BRC rules.

Area League
Area level will be for volunteers who help at area activities run under BRC rules.

National League
National level will be for all volunteers (including team volunteers) who help at Championships only.

Volunteers do not need to be members of a BRC Club to enter the leagues, but for non-members and the National League, volunteers must have signed up to the BRC Volunteers’ Club prior to gaining points, which is free to join – please see the Volunteers’ Club page for more information on how to do this.

Volunteers will need to fill out all details on the card and have their card signed by the secretary to confirm the number of hours and the role they undertook. It is the volunteers’ responsibility to present the point’s card and fill it out upon finishing your role to the secretary for confirmation. Points will be allocated as 1 point per hour helped. Once 4 hours have been completed, 0.5 of a point will also be recorded for every half an hour volunteered. Checks will be carried out by BRC HQ to ensure the information provided is correct.

The league will commence on 1 January each year and will finish on 31 December. Point cards will need to be posted or emailed to BRC by the 7 day of every month (except January). Points will not be allocated retrospectively.

Any member of the organising committee will be excluded from this league for the event they are organising. Area Reps are excluded from all leagues. Official Stewards may only be included if they are not acting as OS on the day of the event.

Activities can include but not limited to social events, training camps and competitions. Paid volunteers (such as judges)/officials at events will not be included in the league.

Rosettes will be awarded to 10th in each league with a sash to first place. A prize for each league will be awarded to first place.
