A horse may only compete in three tests on any day.

Horses and riders must be registered with Dressage Ireland before the closing date of entry to any Regional Show in order to be eligible for qualifying scores

All qualification scores must be gained under a suitably listed Dressage Ireland judge at Dressage Ireland shows.

Entries

Qualifications

Qualifying scores will be accepted from the 30th September 2019 up to and including the 17th March 2020. Entries made by those pending their final qualification scores will be accepted once entries are made by the closing date of the 10th March 2020. Should an entrant not attain the necessary qualifying scores by the 17th March 2020, their entry fees will be refunded.

Two qualifying scores at the same level may be obtained at the same show as long the two tests are judged by different Judges.
