Pennine View stud are happy to be hosting Quest Club days through the summer at Yorkshire Riding Centre. These events will run alongside our usual unaffiliated dressage dates.
What is Quest Club
In 2014, British Dressage (BD) launched a new competition for riders of all ages and abilities called ‘Team Quest’ (TQ). It’s back for 2017 and is set to be even bigger and better!
We’re looking for riders at Intro, Prelim and Novice to take part in a fun and relaxed dressage competition – even if you’ve never competed before. Teams of three or four riders will ride as individuals across the three test levels (any combination) and the best three scores count towards an overall team total, highest percentage wins the day. There are two age categories for teams; BYRDS teams (25yo and under) and Open (riders of any age).
For further information, rules and registration please visit British Dressage, Team Quest
is an exciting initiative for riders competing at Intro – Novice level, a competition league for individuals to be run alongside Team Quest. Relaxed rules and dress, sections for Open and Under 18 riders and competing against riders of a similar ability. My Quest will follow the same regional structure as Team Quest, with regional leaderboards taking the top riders to regional and then a national final.
Riders will earn ‘Quest points’ according to the percentage they acheive to the same scale as other BD competitions. A rider’s five best results and resulting Quest points will then feed into the regional leaderboard for each section (Open and Under 18s) at each level (Intro to Novice).
Remember you can take part in both Team Quest and My Quest! You can even qualify at multiple levels for My Quest.
Take a look at our Quest checklist to get you started!
