General FAQs


I have just affiliated, where do i start?

If you've just got your membership and registration numbers through you should have also recieved your welcome pack which will include a members handbook. The handbook will assist you in identifying  which classes you are eligible for, in addition to outlining the rules of the association and other key information.

The basic rules are designed to ensure fair competition. The initial classes that most people start with  have ‘points limits’ which refers to the success that your horse or pony may have had previously. For example, British Novice classes start at 90cm for Senior and 80cm for Juniors. You can only compete in a British Novice class if your horse has less than 125 points or pony has less than 150 points. The next three classes increase in height and the points limits also increase.

How do i renew my membership or registration?

You can now renew online by using the 'Membership Online' facility. Once you have logged in you can view your membership and any horses and renew using our online secure card payment facility.

You can either return your renewal to us when you receive your reminders in the post or alternatively you can call the office during the week to renew over the phone with a credit or debit card. We also accept renewals via fax (02476 696685).

How do i get a print out or check a horses winnings?

If you are looking to view a horses  performance record and are a current member you can view this here free of charge

If you are a non member or your membership has expired you can still purchase any record on line at a cost of £11 per record. 

 

I have just renewed my membership online but it wont let me renew my horse registration?

If your membership has lapsed you will need to log into the membership online and renew your membership, proceed to the payment page and complete the transaction. Then you can return to your account and select the horse you wish to renew and follow the same procedure. These two renewals have to be done as two separate transactions, it will not allow you to renew your horse on the same transaction if your membership is also due.

How do I find shows in my locality?

There are no limitations as to where you can compete or which area you compete in. You can visit the online show calendar by clicking here.

What does it mean to get four double clears?

Some of our National classes (British Novice, Discovery, Newcomers, Foxhunter) for both senior and juniors have First Rounds, Second Rounds and Finals. To qualify for a Second Round, four double clears must be achieved within the qualifying dates and whilst the horse/pony is within the  points limit. With this achieved Second Rounds can be entered and depending on the class the top combinations will qualify for either Horse of the Year Show or the British Showjumping National Championships

What is the point of having Actual Winnings and Points on horse records?

Points are designed to allow horses and riders to remain in Novice classes for longer. If all Actual money was graded, horses would potentially jump out of classes much quicker, too quick for the development of a horse and/or rider.
