BE100 Under 18

This programme is run at BE100 Open level and is designed to provide experience for riders competing against their own age group while being both fun and educational. It will also provide a stepping stone up to Pony Trials, the Pony Squad or on to the Open Novice Under 18 Regional Programme.

Who can join the BE100 Open Under 18 Programme?

The BE100 Under 18 Programme is open to all eligible members who have their 12th to 18th birthday in the current year. In order to compete in BE100Ou18 classes riders must also meet the minimum eligibility requirements (MERs) for BE100, which can be found in the BE Rules and Members' Handbook.

Ready to move to Novice level?

The Open Novice Under 18 Programme is for riders aged 18 or under already competing at, or looking to progress to, Novice level.

BE100 U18 Regional Classes and Championships

Regional Classes

The country is divided into eight regions, each with its own regional team of volunteers and coaches. Riders are required to register for their region to compete in BE100Ou18 classes. Each region will hold a minimum of four BE100Ou18 competitions for each selection period, where riders have the opportunity to be considered for selection for their regional team and potentially compete in the BE100Ou18 Regional Team Championships, sponsored by The National Saddle Centre and hosted at Frickley Park in July. 

Riders competing in these classes have the opportunity to attend course walks and receive warm up support from the experienced team of U18 BE Accredited Coaches.

The BE100 Under 18 Regional Team Championships

Held at BE100 Open level, The National Saddle Centre BE100Ou18 Regional Team Championships sees each of the eight regions enter a team of up to 10 riders, with the best four scores at the end of the competition counting as the regional team score. Riders also compete individually. Please see the BE Rule and Members' Handbook for further details.
