STARS - Bringing the HOYS experience to grassroots showing equestrians
What is STARS?
The Show Teams And Riding Stars event is a showing Championship created for Riding Club members to bring a touch of HOYS to the grassroots rider or handler.
It was established in 2018 for Northern Riding Clubs local to Aintree Equestrian Centre where the Championship Show was held. It was such a success that for 2019 STARS have created a Southern STARS Championships which will be held at Addington, Buckinghamshire and they hope to grow further and roll out even more regional events in future.
The Event Format
Held over two days [16-17 November 2019] 30 showing classes with members representing over 60 riding clubs will be judged by HOYS star judges looking to select their champion of champions in each category.
Each champion receives a rug, flowered sash, trophy and super prizes, but its not just the joy of victory for a few individual riders at stake.... Every competitor receives a rosette for qualifying and placing goes to 8th position AND there are awards in EVERY class for Best Rider, Best Groom, Rising Star and Best Turned Out.
PLUS a chance to be crowned the STARS Supreme Riding Club of the Year with your fellow competing club members which is not just an accolade but also comes with a financial reward!
How do I qualify?
BKRC will hold 3 shows where STARS points will be awarded:
Your placing in each class will be awarded points. After the third and final BKRC points show, the secretary will collate all the points for each member and will contact the person with the highest points to offer them the chance to represent the club at the Championship.
!! IMPORTANT !!
And once STARS has confirmed your qualification, you'll receive your Golden ticket through the post along with your bridal number and working in time, so your whole STARS experience really goes the extra mile to give you a touch of HOYS.
