Would you like to compete for your school at Grass Roots events in your region?

Grass Roots Show Jumping and Dressage competitions are aimed at our least experienced members. They are designed to give riders confidence during their initial stages of competition.
Riders can begin their competition journey in our 40 cm led classes which are judged on style, and then progress through the 50 cm assisted, 60 and 70 cm classes with simple confidence-giving courses designed with the Grass Roots competitor in mind.
In addition, there are also Grass Roots dressage classes now being introduced in some areas.

What to wear

  • Approved Skull Cap
  • Johdpurs and johdpur boots.
