Congratulations to those who have qualified for the Combined Training competition at the RDS this year.
Information about the competition can be found on the RDS website at:
Please note that the RDS Intermediate and Members dressage tests are different from the Pony Club tests, they can be downloaded from the RDS website (and IPC website).
Note that there are some differences in the Rules for tack and turnout.
It is very important that your horse's passport is up to date with regard to vaccination. NB required 6-monthly for the RDS, the passport will be inspected at the gate when you arrive and you will not be allowed entry if the passport is not in order.
Please make sure you declare at the Equestrian Office under the Anglesea stand in advance of the competition. The running order will be available from there on the day of the competition.
Finally, it was suggested last year that competitors set up a WhatsApp group to keep each other informed of updates to timing etc, as this information is not announced by the RDS, and the stabling area is likely to be on the Simmonscourt side while the warm up and competitions are in Rings 1 and 2.
Wishing you all the best of luck!
