IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING QUALIFICATION RULES FOR THE FESTIVAL ASSOCIATION – F21uk NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS Northcote 22nd-25th October 2015.
After a recent rules meeting it was decided that once you have won a qualification card for your Championship Class you can enter any other Championship class that your horse/pony is eligible for, we did this in 2007 (Summer Championships) known as the Multi-card, so you are now qualifying for the show not the class!
You must however still send in at least one qualification card by Monday 19th October, other Championships Class’s can be pre entered or entered on the day (please be aware that on the day entries may be limited)!
This was decided due to a couple of reasons, I only took over as Show Director part way through the season and haven’t had full control of this year’s scheduling, numerous phone calls/email requests asking if we could do this, the fact that this is a National Championship not just a regional Championship, people travelling from the far North of Scotland - Wales – NE etc, a long way just for one class!
Evening performance classes and Mini Championship classes are not affected, I do hope that you understand the reasons behind this and hope you enjoy show!
Remember that The Festival Association National Championships (22nd Winter Festival of Champions) has a potential prize fund of over £8,000 an all Irish Judges Panel, being Lived Streamed by Equestrian TV with the normal Festival Razzmatazz! Some Evening performance classes, side saddle, Showman’s and the Mini Champs can be entered by anybody regardless if you have qualified or not!
