The Midway Championships is aiming to give riders who do not compete strings of horses at the lower levels, or who only have two horses in 2019 competing at the higher levels, an opportunity to compete at a Championship type show.
We had a fantastic Gala Music Evening supported by Equidance and Divine Equestrian this year and are just in the process of finalising the details for 2019.
We have just had the most amazing third year of competition and I would just like to extend my thanks to all competitors, helpers and sponsors who make the whole thing possible.
Dates have been agreed with Hartpury College so we are looking forward to a great show in 2019.
Prelim to Advanced Medium - Riders who have competed 2 or less horses in British Dressage competitions since 1st December 2018, and who have not competed at a CDI since 1st January 2014 are eligible.
Prix St Georges to Grand Prix - Riders, who may have competed any number of horses from Preliminary to Advanced Medium, but have only competed TWO horses at PSG or higher at British Dressage or FEI competitions since 1st December 2018, and who have also not competed at a CDI since 1st January 2014 are eligible.
Horse and rider combinations will also need to qualify for the show by achieving the number of specified scores for their level.
The show will run over 2 days on 23rd and 24th August and will take place at Hartpury College.
All competitors entering the Midway Music classes (classes 21-28) will automatically be entered in the equivalent BD Affiliated Music Class. Competitors may enter an additional BD Music Qualifier if they wish by entering the appropriate class. All classes will be run under BD rules.
Entries can made on line at www.horsemonkey.com from 1st July 2019.
The main Championship will run over the 2 days and will run from Prelim to Grand Prix. Each combination will complete 2 tests at their level and the overall winner for each level will be decided on the total good marks presented as a percentage of the total marks available. There are no prizes for placings on each day.
The Music classes will run from Prelim to Grand Prix on Friday 23rd August through into a Music Gala Evening in the main Hartpury Arena. Any combination who has competed in the main Championship will be eligible to enter the Music Championship, at the same levelor above. Entries in the Music classes will automatically be entered in the appropriate affiliated Music class.
