RoR Area 9 Qualifier information
Dear Area 9 Members, Please find attached information about the Retraining of Racehorses Area 9 Riding Club Challenge (RoR Area 9 RCC). The aim of the Challenge is to encourage ex racehorse owners to register their horse with the RoR, get involved with their local Riding Clubs, and to provide an extra incentive to compete with their horses at Riding Club level.
The RoR Riding Club Challenge is a relatively new initiative, designed to attract and promote ex racehorses competing at Riding Club level. The Challenge has already been taken up by 25 individual Riding Clubs around the country with more signing up each week, and is also run by at area level by Area 4. Area 9 will be the second Area to take up the Challenge, and it is designed to run in parallel to the already existing Area 9 competition season.
The RoR Area 9 RCC will be two-fold:
1) An RoR Area 9 RCC Rosette awarded to the best performing ex racehorse in each section of Area 9 competitions.
2) Points will be awarded based on performance and accumulated towards the RoR Area 9 RCC Performance trophy.
How to get involved:
1) Register your horse with RoR. This is FREE and details are at www.ror.org.uk. You will be given an individual RoR number for your horse, and this is required to participate in the Challenge.
2) Send your details (Name and contact details, Horse’s registered name and RoR number and your Riding Club) to the Area 9 RoR co-ordinator. firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Notify the Area 9 RoR co-ordinator of any Area 9 competition entries prior to the event.
RoR Area 9 RCC is open to ALL Ex Racehorses - All participating horses are to be registered with Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) and be assigned an RoR number. Please note - horses do NOT have to have raced in GB to be eligible to compete in the Riding Club Challenge. Any ex racehorse regardless of racing background will be given a registration number by the RoR in order to compete in Riding Club events. Details of how to register a horse may be found at: www.ror.org.uk
I hope you like the idea of the Challenge, and look forward to working with your Riding Clubs to offer RoR prizes to your members competing at Area competitions. If you have any comments or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. If your Riding Club would be interested in also running the RoR Challenge on an individual Club level, please contact Pippa Boyle at email@example.com
