STARS Champion of Champions event 2019 @ Aintree International Equestrian Centre | England | United Kingdom

STARS CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS

Aintree International Equestrian Centre is thrilled to be once again hosting this fabulous event. Last year will be hard to beat but we are all determined to put on a fantastic event and recognise the achievements of each and every of you who qualify for the finals.

More information will be posted on this page as the STARS team announce it, the schedule is currently being finalised and will be posted on this page as soon as possible. 

IMPORTANT REMINDER RE VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS – As per our Terms & Conditions, all horses/ponies attending Aintree Equestrian Centre events must be fully up to date with annual vaccinations against Equine Influenza. They must also be 6 days clear of any vaccination and may attend on the 7th day. Please present your passport to the show office on arrival for inspection. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR STABLING – Vaccination requirements for stabling are constantly under review, as per BHA guidelines. At present the requirement is for all horses/ponies entering the stables to have had a booster vaccination for Equine Influenza in the 9 months prior to arriving, assuming they have previously had the primary course of 3 vaccinations correctly administered within the appropriate timescales. Passports must be presented to the stable manager for inspection prior to unloading, horses/ponies will then be checked to their passports by their  microchip (or passport description if not microchipped). Any change to this policy will be posted on our website as soon as it becomes known to us. Your co-operation and understanding is appreciated. 

PLEASE NOTE – THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THESE RULES

NO VACCINATION = NO ADMITTANCE

More details to follow but please see the original vision below, from the show director, Sarah Harrison: (rules may be updated for 2019):

“STARS Champion of Champions are going to re-create a HOYS experience for all RC/PC competitors which will be held at Aintree Equestrian Centre, Aintree Race Course, Liverpool on 20th and 21st of October 2018!

No other show has ever tried to create such a prestigious event from start to finish for Riding Clubs until now – where the best of the best go head-to-head to be crowned Champion.

This experience doesn’t just mean the time you walk through those curtains and compete in the ring.

We promise to give you everything from bridle numbers to working-in time slots in the main arena and culminating with trotting down the centre line on your lap of honour.

We will only invite HOYS star judges to preside over classes and all Ridden and In-hand showing classes will be judged using the HOYS-style format of 50 marks for Ride/Show and 50 marks for Conformation/Way of Going. Equitation and Young Handler classes will have their own marks systems in place as well.

Over 50 Riding Clubs and Pony Clubs from all over the country have enquired about how to affiliate to STARS; we hope this will grow year on year.

HOYS themselves have been in touch to say they think that this is a wonderful idea which really aims to put Riding and Pony Clubs firmly on the map!

We have been contacted by some fabulous equestrian magazines offering to cover the event; and we already have some amazing sponsors on board. If anyone would like to support this event through additional sponsorship we do have classes available.

So how do you qualify? It’s simple -all affiliated clubs will send their end-of-year points winners to the grand finale to compete for the title of Overall Champion of their section. Qualification can be passed down to the Reserve or Second Reserve Points Champion if and Points Champion is unable to represent their club. Those lucky enough to qualify will receive their qualification in the form of a Golden Ticket.

All affiliated Clubs will also be competing for the honour of being crowned Supreme Riding club of the Year title which will be awarded to the Club gaining the best results across the Show. To make it fair for all sizes of Clubs we will take your top 10 section results to work out the Supreme titles. There will be a large cash prizes up for grabs being split between the Supreme, Reserve Supreme and Second Reserve Supreme Clubs. We are also offering training days and numerous other prizes to make things interesting for all.

My aim is to give all riding Club and Pony Club competitors something to aspire to – like I once had at Birchinley Manor all those years ago!..”
