Team trials 2018

Wednesday 2rd October

2pm-4:30pm

Lee valley riding centre

Team trials will be hosted on Wednesday 3rd October in the afternoon at Lee Valley Riding Centre.

Trials will run a bit like a BUCS competition: you will have 5 minutes to warm up with an unknown horse and will then have to complete a short dressage test. Shortlisted riders will then be assessed jumping a short course on another horse.

 

Price per rider: £15 

If you are interested, please fill out the following survey and register your interest in the Facebook Event here. There is only limited space and we will have to make a selection based on what you tell us, so make sure you provide details! Please don't exaggerate your level as the horses used at trials may not be adapted to your capabilities: our priority is for riders, horses and people on the ground to remain safe and sound!

We will be meeting in front of the Bloomsbury theatre (TBC) and make our way to Lee Valley on public transport: please bring a valid Oyster card/contactless card!
