An Area Spring Qualifier qualifiers Members and Non-Members to the Spring Festival held on 23rd April 2017 at Summerhouses Equestrian Centre, Gloucestershire and 2017 Regional Finals  Where you may compete to gain a place in the Championship of the Day and gain a further ticket to the Supreme Veteran of the Year in September 2017.


Competitors placed 1st to 4th at a Spring Area Qualifier are then eligible to enter the Regional Final (second round) providing they become a member.


All Area Qualifiers will have the choice of 6 standard age category classes or 2 combined age classes. These are called foundation classes.


In addition to these foundation classes, we also offer optional specialist class, for M&Ms. Competitors placed 1st to 4th in these specialist classes qualify for the main foundation classes at Regional Final level where the highest place M&M in each class will qualify for the VHS M&M Supreme Final, also to be held at the National Veteran Open Championships, on 1st October 2017. We currently do not hold specialist classes at Regional Final Level.
