League Points

To qualify for points and prizes for the summer league combinations must compete in a minimum of 3 shows plus the FINAL.

League points will be calculated on a percentage basis for your grade at each show. Your best score in your grade per show will be used. The league result is based on the sum total of the three highest percentages achieved during the league for each horse/rider combination, with one result per show to count. Percentages will be used in the standard format, e.g. 65.52%

An extra 5% will be awarded to those who attend 5 shows or more.

Points example: Joan Murphy riding Super Star who achieves a 71.68% and 69.12% in 2 different preliminary tests at the first show will be awarded 71.68 points in the league. If Joan Murphy also competes Super Star in 2 Novice tests and scores 64.25% and 68.05% then the 68.05 becomes her league points for the novice league.

Notice

Closing date for Leinster Dressage Shows is changing

We are delighted that shows are going from strength to strength and we continue to experience growing numbers at every show. It is important that shows continue to be run to the same standards regardless of the numbers competing. in order to achieve this more behind the scenes work needs to be done in order to get the show ready for show day. To help facilitate this entries will now close midnight the Sunday before the next show.

We get a large number of late entry pleas and it is very hard to say no but unfortunately we simply can’t accommodate any late entries for any reason. Shows are continually running at the maximum numbers that can be accomodated and this is one of the reasons we cannot accommodate late entries.

We advise competitors to get their entries in as early as possible, withdrawals may be made up to midnight on the Tuesday before a Sunday show.

The committee may be contacted at leinsterdressage@gmail.com
