COVID-19 SUMMER LEAGUE UPDATE - 1st JUNE 2020
I'm delighted to update that our Summer League will now run!
The Summer League 2020 will run over the final three months of the summer events - see below for full details.
Summer League 2020 - Our 'short format' Summer League will run from June to August!
Here are the Summer League dates for your diaries:
🧡 June: "Summer Ice Creams" Dressage - closing date Sunday 28th June
🧡 July: NEW "Unicorn Waterfall" Dressage - closing date Sunday 2nd August
🧡 August: "Back To School Squares" Dressage - closing date Sunday 6th September
Points will be collected at each of these three events (7 points for 1st place, 6 for 2nd place and so on down to 6th place, all those unplaced will receive 1 point for taking part!)
At the end of the League in September, there will be a Champion and Reserve Champion at each level.
Summer League Champions will receive a beautiful Demi Dressage Champion rosette, an exclusive Demi Dressage t-shirt with their name below the logo (see MiniD's #minidandtangle example below!) and a free entry to our Half Term Dressage/Prix Caprilli.
Reserve Champions will receive a beautiful Demi Dressage Reserve Champion rosette, and a free entry to our Half Term Dressage/Prix Caprilli.
All competitors will automatically be entered for our Summer League if they take part in any of the June/July/August dressage events - you do not have to register or do anything different with your entry. Points for each pony/rider combination will be updated in the points league tables below after each event.
The boring bits - Summer League notes/restrictions:
To keep it fair for all competitors, please be realistic about the level you are entering (for existing competitors, do not enter them at a level below that at which they have previously been competing successfully just to score league points - we will notice, and it won't be allowed! If there are genuine reasons for them dropping down a level please discuss with us (if you haven't already!) For new competitors, feel free to contact us if you are unsure which Rider Level will be most suitable for you, we're happy to provide guidance.)
As per our Rules, you are of course very welcome to enter more than one level (class) at each event, but please remember we only allow each pony and rider combination to enter two adjacent levels (Rule 2). If one rider has two different ponies, they can choose their level/s based on what is appropriate for each combination.
2019 Summer League Champions will regretfully not be eligible to collect league points at the level at which they won last year, again this is to keep it fair for all competitors. (Please note for the riders who this applies to - they *do not* have to move up a level if they don't want to, they just won't be able to collect points and potentially win the league at the same level two years in a row - I hope this makes sense!)
