TRI Equestrian Sponsorship. TRI Equestrian has kindly offered sponsorship for this year. TRI Equestrian are giving vouchers for first second and third in the Open Team and Individual Competitions and these are in ADDITION to prizes being presented by competition organisers.
NOTE: The Equestrian Interschools League Committee facilitates event organisers by publishing these general rules and guidelines and by publishing a calendar of events and results. The commitee also records results submitted which are then, if the event is part of the league, collated for the team and individual league. Event organisers are responsible for the submission of the results. Events are run by schools and/or equestrian centres and carry their own insurance for the event. The central committee is not involved in the running and organising of these events, other than by publishing them in the calendar and recording results submitted by the event organisers. All queries pertaining to the events should be directed to the event oganiser. The equestrian Inter Schools League Committee organises the final of the league in conjunction with the venue nominated to host the final. It will run under the venue's insurance. All people involved in equestrian events, whether running an event, running a club, coaching or otherwise are advised to familiarise themselves with the HSI code of ethics and good practice in Equestrian Sport.
SUBMITTING RESULTS: We have been asked by the Irish Field to remind organisers that the deadline for results is the Tuesday of the week for publication. Also the format is the schools name followed by the pony then the riders name in brackets followed by the next pony and so on. EG:1, Scoil Mhuire: Dobbin (Mary Smith),Golden Wonder (Ann Jones) Bob's Pride (Jack Jones)and Camelot (Joseph Jones); 2, St Patrick's and so on... A short report /article should if possible also accompany this. Both should be copied to us in order for us to collate league results
NEW for 2021/2022
There will be one change to the format for 2021/2022 This season we are replacing the primary team league with a primary Individual league. The primary team competition will still be held as a competition on the day. All other league competitions and qualifiers continue as in previous years.
Primary Individual League will be for competitors jumping 65 to 75cm round. If an event is running a 50 to 55cm in conjunction, those results do not count towards Individual league results. In the final a competitor's best 6 scores are brought forward and there will be points and a half in the final. Competitors must compete at the final to be eligible for prizes in the league, similar to our other league comptitions.
Team and Individual compettions Secondary and Primary
With regard to competition format for 2021/2022 event organisers can if desired (to prevent teams having to wait around) run the team competitions as follows:
The second phase can be treated as the jump off round with the best 3 scores (faults and time in the second phase) added to the best three scores in the first round. This means that a third jumpoff round with two riders nominated to jump against the clock will not be necessary.
The individual competitions can follow a similar format.
This will be reviewed in subsequent school years.
Classes which will be held at venues are as follows:
TRI Equestrian Open team league class-points towards final.
TRI Equestrian Open Individual League-points towards final. Novice team league-points towards final.
Primary individual class-points towards final.
HSI sponsored 1.10cm class-six to qualify from each qualifier-Champion to be decided at final.
Equieire EII 90cm class-six to qualify from each qualifier-Champion to be decided at the final.
In conjunction novice individual and primary team competions will be held. These are not leagues or qualifiers.
Note, not all venues wil run all of these classes. Check the individual show schedules when posted on the calendar.
Some venues will allow suitably experienced primary pupils to jump in the fun novice 80cm class but check with the event organiser to be sure.
The onus is on EII members to be familiar with the rules and to know what classess they are eligible to compete in.
