Teams

Riding Club Team Information

Welcome to the EEFDG Team page.  The Team Manager is Colleen Taylor.  If you are a member there are plenty of exciting opportunities for Seniors and Juniors to get involved and you don’t have to ride, non riding helpers are also invited.

We are part of Area 8 which comprises other British Riding Clubs in the Essex area (see web site www.brc-area8.co.uk for further info).  These Areas have inter regional competitions and those qualifying go on to represent their club and area at the National finals.

Dressage is our main theme and there are both Winter and Summer qualifiers that we like to put teams forward for.   These are primarily at Preliminary and Novice levels for Riding Club (there are restrictions on the number of BD points allowed but we can help you see if you are eligible).

Also there is the annual dressage to music qualifier and a chance to have a go at qualifying to ride at Windsor.  Plus, although we are mainly known for our dressage, we have had teams and individuals at show jumping and hunter trial events.

If you would like to be considered for any team event please get in touch with us (see contacts page for links details). We have a large membership and whilst we go to shows to see how you are all getting on it is impossible for us to be everywhere and contact everyone.  So please if you are interested in representing EEFDG then take the plunge – you are not alone there is a great team spirit within the club and plenty of people to help (if you need it, we know nerves do funny things!).

We have produced a guide to representing EEFDG so that everyone understands what is expected of them.  This guide tells you what we do, what you do and how to get involved.  The dates of course differ year to year but keep an eye on the calendar for the qualifying dates and PLEASE if you do represent us make sure you can go to the final if you get through.

Please note: No horse and rider may represent more than one affiliated club in official competitions during the official competition year.  All dressage competitions are entered by the Team Manager only.

Happy competing.

Colleen
