Winter Series 2018-19

TREC GB Winter Series is run via the Arena TREC competitions that will take place all over the country this winter.

 

 

Winter Series 2018 -2019

 

Arena TREC focuses on the MA (Control of Paces) and PTV (Obstacle course) phases of TREC and events are usually run in an indoor or outdoor school.

 The PTV is shortened to 10 obstacles and there are a variety of classes to suit all horses and riders. 

 MA (CoP) scores - After the success of last season the MA scores will continue to reduced 50%. We feel it more accurately reflect the balance between the two phases of the competition. It was thought that a straight 50% reduction would be preferable to a more accurate reduction as it was easier for organisers to calculate and riders can instantly see what they would have scored if it had been a full TREC competition.

Competitors are expected to present themselves and their horse in a clean and tidy state, with all tack and equipment in a serviceable condition.

Newcomer. Open to RIDERS not to have been placed 1st in two or more Winter League classes prior to 1st October 2018. PTV obstacles equivalent to Level 1.

Novice Horse. Open to HORSES who have not been placed 1st in two or more Winter League classes prior to 1st October 2018.

Intermediate. Horse and rider combination not to have been placed 1st in three or more Intermediate classes, or to have won twice in the Open class at WINTER TREC competitions prior to 1st October 2018.

Open Intermediate - New class for 2018 Open to all horses and riders. The course will be of the same standard  as INTERMEDIATE.

Most competitions will run non league classes alongside the league classes such as In Hand, Pairs, and Starters classes for you to have fun with on the day, which will be in the competitions schedule. 

 

All classes are open to Members and Non Members for TREC GB – only paid up members will have their scores counted towards TREC GB Winter Leagues and be legible for a special award.

The  Winter League will include results from all TREC GB Arena TREC competitions held in from 1st October 2018 to 31st March 2019 in Open, Intermediate, Intermediate Open, Newcomer and Novice Horse classes.  Points will be awarded for placings (1st = 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, etc) and the best 4 placings for each horse and rider combination will be used to calculate the League standings. Please see sample schedule for details. Riders who are not members of TREC GB can join on the day (before or after their class) in order for their performance at that event to count. 

The highest four scores will be counted for the league. In the event of equal positions after 4 events the position at a fifth event will be taken into account. If still equal the TOTAL actual PTV scores (from 4 events) will be taken into account.
