Bronze, Silver and Gold Leagues and the Bronze/Silver Championships
British Showjumping is working to a four tiered league system that will reflect horse/rider combination performance.
Depending on the tier level, the league lists will be used to identify horse/rider combinations that are eligible to be invited to their respective League Semi Final competitions or Championship Shows.
All members being placed or jumping double clears at any British Showjumping or FEI show within the United Kingdom will be awarded points. The new league structure rewards consistency across a level playing field. In addition, the league tables offer a progressive environment with a genuine prospect for all level of riders to qualify for a Championships hosted at Horse of The Year Show.
The four tiers of leagues are hosted on the British Showjumping website and will be further accompanied by the FEI World Ranking List to identify Rider Rankings for those competing internationally.
The league tables do not replace or alter any of the National Championship series or the qualifying structure for each of their respective finals. Neither does it change the winnings records being kept on each horse competing at British Showjumping events.
In addition to the these leagues there will be a Top Horse list based on National and FEI winnings; from this an owners list will be compiled.
The new leagues will run from the 1st April – 30th September with the next running from the 1st October – 31st March.
The four tiers of leagues are as follows:
The Club leagues are regional league tables consisting of points awarded to Club Members competing within Club Shows at a height of 70cm – 1.00m. Points are awarded to Horse/Rider or Pony/Rider based on results. The Club league ranking list is used to invite Club Members to contest a Club Championship.
The Bronze leagues are regional league tables consisting of points awarded to National Members competing in all classes with 1st rounds heights between 90cm – 1.10m. Result based points are awarded on a Horse/Rider combination basis. The top 15 horse/rider combinations on each of the Bronze leagues will be invited to contest a Semi Final with the chance to qualify for a Bronze League Championship Final at Horse of the Year show.
