BE announces packed winter schedule of training and competition

Arena Eventing JAS

As the 2017 eventing season heads to its conclusion, British Eventing are looking forward to a packed winter schedule of training and competition. Open to both BE members and non-members, the BE winter series provides the perfect pre-season prep for horses and riders.

Arena Eventing

Arena Eventing gets underway at the end of the season with 19 fixtures throughout November, December, January and February and gives combinations the chance to compete over a course of show jumps immediately followed by a round of arena cross country fences. The classes are set at AE80 (80cm), AE90 (90cm) and AE100 (100cm) level and at the end of the cross country element riders will take on a joker fence which will be approximately 10cm higher than the rest of the course.

Riders competing in any Arena Eventing competition also have the chance to qualify for the Championships; the top 10% from each class, plus the top three from the JAS90 and JAS100 Jumping & Style (JAS) Championships, will be eligible to compete at the Arena Eventing Championships hosted at Aston Le Walls on 24th February 2018.

Jump Training, sponsored by Baileys Horse Feed

With a guided warm up, two rounds of show jumping and coach feedback, Jump Training provides the ideal preparation for riders looking to improve their show jumping ahead of next season.

Held at JT80, JT90 and JT100 level (80cm, 90cm and 100cm respectively) throughout January and February, Jump Training’s unique format sees combinations receiving advice and support from BE Accredited Coaches in a relaxed competition environment. Each rider gets a few minutes warm up with a BE Coach before heading in to complete their first round of show jumping, riders are then given feedback which can be put into practice during their second round of jumping. Alongside the beneficial coaching, each combination is scored on several elements during their rounds, including pace and position, which are added to any jumping faults incurred.

The top 25% from each class will also qualify for the Jump Training Championships held at Hartpury College, Gloucestershire, on Saturday 17th February.

Jumping & Style (JAS), sponsored by Baileys Horse Feed

Jumping & Style, or JAS as it is more commonly known, sees competitors take on a round of show jumps followed by a timed round of cross country-style fences at JAS90 (90cm), JAS100 (100cm) and Novice (115cm) level, and include an open section at each level. As well as any penalties picked up from the jumping, combinations are also judged on their style and technique.

Taking place in January and February, JAS is the perfect opportunity to get horses and riders competition ready and thinking forward before the start of the new eventing season. The top 20% from each class are also eligible to take part in the JAS Championships on Sunday 18th February at Hartpury College, Gloucestershire.
