British Dressage and Dressage Anywhere have teamed up again to host the second annual online championships.
Entries are now being taken for the British Dressage Associates Online Championships 2014 where a rider can send a video of themselves completing a dressage test and have it judged and given feedback.
The qualifying period runs from 1st May 2014 to 30th September 2014 and all entries into the monthly Introductory, Preliminary, Novice and Elementary classes will be eligible.
All riders need to do is achieve two scores of 62% or more at the same level within the qualifying period and the highest combined scores will be invited to take part in the Online Championship Show during November 2014. To complete qualifications riders need to be a BD Associate member. Associate membership is free and more information is available on the BD website.
Prizes are on offer for the first three places, first place is free British Dressage membership and horse registration,
second place is free membership, third place is one year's annual subscription to British Dressage magazine.
All Championship qualifiers will receive 10% off BD membership and horse registration plus a BD class ticket so you can try out affiliated competition.
To take part, register for free with Dressage Anywhere, choose a test from the monthly classes 1 to 4 between May and September. Ride and submit your test before the end of the competition month. Once judged, riders receive a link to view their score sheet, which can be downloaded and saved.
Our highest placed winner in the 2013 Online Championships was Emma Hawkins and Luna in the Introductory class with 76.96%. The Championships opened up doors to her after her horsebox was stolen. 'The best bit for me is reading my sheet while watching my test back,' Emma says. 'It really helps you learn a lot. The BD List 1 Judge's feedback really gives you confidence.'
