Compete at Marlton Dressage Shows and Festivals, earn valuable league points which translate into prize money at the end of the season. For every point you earn 75cents!
Leagues will be updated after every show with the updates published on our website and they will also be on display at every show. While we do our best to allocate points correctly human error can occur and we are asking competitors to check their league points and places on a regular basis. Cut-off point for any queries relating to shows prior to the Autumn Festival is Monday 5th August. Cut off point for any queries relating to the Autumn Festival is Sunday 18th August one hour before the prize giving.
Points will be awarded in both Open and Restricted sections in Preliminary and Novice but will be amalgamated in each grade, so only one Preliminary and one Novice league will be run. Points will be awarded on a sliding scale depending on the number of entries in each class. Marlton Dressage Club members will be awarded one bonus league point for every class they enter.
The best placing achieved by a horse/rider combination on the day in the relevant grade will count for league points. All shows will count towards league points. League points will be awarded on both days at the Spring, Summer and Autumn Festivals. Horse/rider combinations must attend a minimum of 4 shows plus the Autumn Festival to be eligible for league prizes; (Festivals are counted as "one show").
Adult members may take part in the Preliminary, Novice, Elementary and Advanced leagues. Junior members may compete in all classes. Results from Preliminary, Novice and Elementary will count towards the Junior League, results from Medium and above will count towards the Advanced league. Juniors riding at Elementary level and achieving consistently good placings will be requested to move into the Elementary league. All classes will count for league points except class TT & BS.
All League presentations will be made at the Autumn Festival on Sunday 18th August and riders are reminded that they must attend the presentation in order to be eligible for their league prize.
