Grandstand Media Ltd are delighted to announce that entries for the British Showjumping National Championships (BSNC) and Stoneleigh Horse Show (SHS) at NAEC Stoneleigh, Warwickshire are now open. The schedule is live and available for download for what will be an exciting fourth year of running the prestigious national championships.
The BSNC 2018 will take place between 7th – 12th August 2018, featuring many national titles and daily warm up classes. BSNC is the culmination of British Showjumping’s qualifying season. The event will play host to world-class riders competing for the esteemed International Stairway League title, as well as coveted opportunities to qualify for Horse of the Year Show. The prestigious International Stairway League final will take place on Sunday 12th August, culminating in a spectacular finale where the British Showjumping National Champion will be crowned.
Stoneleigh Horse Show which runs alongside the BSNC from Friday 10th – Sunday 12th August is offering more HOYS qualifying opportunities than any other show with 57 qualifiers. There is a whole host of different classes from Coloureds to Cobs, Working Hunters to Lead Rein as well as classes for the Mountain and Moorland breeds. As last year at Stoneleigh Horse Show, there will be no membership stipulations for any showing classes, including HOYS qualifiers. Therefore, for competitors who do qualify, a verification period will be held in which time the competitor must become a member of the relevant society within seven working days from the date of the qualifier in order to secure their place in the championship at HOYS.
It is not only competitors who are guaranteed a fabulous day out, the British Showjumping National Championships and Stoneleigh Horse Show also offers a great family day of exciting competition, hospitality and afternoon tea offerings and a retail shopping village. Entry for spectators wishing to take advantage of this fantastic show is free and parking is only £5 per car.
