Retraining of Racehorses Riding Club Challenge


The Riding Club Challenge is an RoR initiative to attract and promote ex racehorses competing at Riding Club level. Previously the RoR has offered very little in the way of unaffiliated competitions for ex racehorse owners and by working with Riding Clubs we can reach many more ex racehorse owners over a range of disciplines.


The main aims of this initiative are to encourage ex racehorse owners to register with the RoR, get their horse out competing at riding club competitions and to encourage ex racehorse owners to join their local riding club. 


The Riding Club Challenge is a points based system that runs within the riding clubs current schedule and points system. The challenge will be applied to all of our own competitions  – across all disciplines, and will be open to non members as well as members of the riding club.


We want to reward participation and performance ­ so the points system awards 1 point for every class entered and then uses our current point system to award the points for being placed.


For example at our Dressage Competitions, using our points system of 12 points for 1st place scaling down to 2 points for 6th place, an RoR competitor who enters 2 classes and finishes 2nd in one class will end the day on a score of 12 points. If no other RoR competitor scores above 12 then that horse and rider combination will win the Riding Club Challenge Rosette for that day’s competition. 


Eligibility for the Challenge ­Horse with an RoR number.

The Challenge is open to all ex racehorses regardless of where in the world they have raced or if they are unraced. They simply need to be registered with RoR and provide their number to the Riding Club. 


There will be a challenge rosette for the highest point scoring ex­racehorse at each of our competitions, this year starting with the Have a Go dressage at Teffont.  At the end of the year at the AGM there will be a special rosette and a trophy awarded to the ex­racehorse and their rider who have scored the most points throughout the year. It also means that anyone who is registered to the ROR regional league can use our competitions as points towards the ROR Championships.
