A number of changes to the qualification process are being introduced for this years AIRC National Dressage Championships.
Teams riders, who qualify for the final, will now also qualify as individuals while the number of competitors that qualify in the individual classes for advanced primary, intermediate and advanced intermediate will decrease to 3. This is down from 6.
These changes mean that any rider who qualifies as an individual, while also a member of a team, will only have to ride two tests at the final.
The rules regarding reserves are also going to be simplified as clubs will no longer have to name reserves in advance but will only be permitted to make one change per team by a deadline prior to the qualifier and finals.
The rule changes will be available in the 2020 rule book which will be published shortly.
The AIRC National Dressage Championship are due to take place at Mullingar Equestrian on Sunday 16th August 2020.
