SEIB Search for a Star RDA competition 2022
15th July 2022 at the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) National Championships at Hartpury College, Hartpury, GL19 3BE
The Search for a Star RDA Showing Championship is open to any rider associated to an RDA Group who can walk and trot independently. Entry is subject to the Groups approval for each horse and rider. Stewards will be on hand to explain what to do but all competitors will enter the arena together and line up. Riders will then be asked to give a short show that can include canter but this is not necessary, just a good display showing the best of the horse and rider. Competitors will not be asked to trot together.
Any type of horse is able to compete and the class will be judged 30% conformation, 30% turnout and 40% suitability, manners and way of going, so giving a good show within the horses capability will be the way to succeed.
After giving a show the horse and rider will be asked to come out of line and stand for the conformation judge to have a look at the animal.
If numbers of entries are high the class will be split into sections with the top competitors returning for a final judging.
Riders should be neatly turned out, clean and tidy but tack and saddlery suitable for the rider not the show ring will be encouraged.
