Run at Intro to Advanced Medium levels, this series is for riders competing via Dressage Anywhere. To qualify directly for the championship, horse and rider combinations must achieve three scores of 60% or above, gained between 1 January 2020 and 30 September 2020.

This series is only open to British Nationals and British Expatriates.

Scores can be gained in any of the monthly classes on www.dressageanywhere.com. Entries from the monthly Veteran Horse competitions will be eligible to qualify but there will not be a specific Veteran Horse class in the Online Championship Show. Results from Ex-Racehorse and RDA competitions are not eligible as they have their own championships.

Combinations may compete and qualify at different levels but can only compete in two levels/classes at the final.

When you have achieved three qualifying scores, the next time you login you’ll see a notification with a link to register your qualification and book you Championship Show entry with British Dressage. To qualify and compete in the final, riders must also book their Championship Show entry via BD's Bookwhen system for £10.00 plus the entry fee.

The final will be held in the late autumn of each year, via Dressage Anywhere.

A fun introduction to British Dressage or if you're already a BD Quest member, this is an opportunity to be part of the relaxed Quest series. Points and qualifications will be awarded by competing in the BD Quest Online monthly competitions. BD points will not be awarded.

This is separate to live BD Quest competitions, which should hopefully resume in July. It’s just another great opportunity to compete in dressage!
