Affiliating your show for 2021
Our aim is to have at least one qualifying show within easy reach of everyone throughout the UK. However, there are still some gaps in the map which we are anxious to fill. If there is NOT a qualifying show within easy reach of you, we’d appreciate it if you would ask your local show secretaries to apply for affiliation. You can use your existing judges or you can find one on our Recommended Judges List (Click here to download)
Affiliation is still FREE OF CHARGE for qualification cards only. Special “Qualifier” rosettes are available for your class winners if you wish at the special price of £1.50 each.
What you need to do . . .
Download the affiliation form and send it in to our office as soon as possible. This will ensure that your show receives maximum publicity via our website and social media. Don’t worry if your draft schedule isn’t ready yet – you can send it in to us later on. It’s probably easier and quicker if you can email these documents to the office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wording to be included inside your schedule is as follows:
First, second and third placed horses/ponies not already qualified in eligible classes will qualify for the Champion of Britain Title classes to be held at Arena UK, Grantham on Sunday 5th September 2021. If a horse/pony has already qualified, cards may be handed down to 6th place at judge’s discretion. Each qualified horse/pony will receive a qualification card in the ring which will enable the owner to enter the Championship Show, provided the owner and rider/handler are, or become registered with the Concours d’Elegance Society within 21 days of the qualifying show. No horse registration is required. For up to date information telephone the secretary on 07960 107 111 or see www.eqconcoursgb.com
Send in your draft schedule as soon as it is available. This is so we can check your wording, decide which of your classes would be eligible, and work out how many qualification cards and rosettes (if applicable) you will need. You may order your rosettes at this time if you wish. Your qualification cards will be sent to you. The cards may be signed by either Judge, steward or show secretary – you may sign the cards in advance to save your Judge’s time in the ring if you wish. Qualification may be handed down as far as sixth place if the Judge feels there is sufficient merit. Rosettes (if applicable) will be dispatched separately in good time for your show date.
You should send us a final schedule for our records, but you do not need to send us your results except in the case of lost cards etc.
If you have any queries, you should contact Emma Richardson-Steele on 07960107111
