Changes to BRC Flu Vaccination Requirements
We know that flu vaccinations have been a contentious issue for some time and as part of the BHS, welfare of the horse is obviously paramount, however in the current climate the risk of a flu outbreak is at this time minimal.
BRC are therefore comfortable to remove the requirement of a vaccination within 6 months and 21 days of a qualifier or championship. This will be with immediate effect, however we will continue to strongly recommend a 6 month vaccination when attending BRC qualifiers and championships along with maintaining good biosecurity protocols.
In order to compete in a BRC qualifier and/or championships the annual vaccinations (12 month) and initial course must be correct as per G7 of the Handbook.
BRC reserve the right to amend these vaccination rules should another outbreak occur.
If you are using a venue that requires a 6 month vaccination then you would need to adhere to their rules.
CRC 70cm Show Jumping team take 2nd at National Championships!!
On Saturday 4th September, Cumbria Riding Club's 70cm Show Jumping team made up of Anna Tilsley & Kaleidoscope, Victoria Graham & Miss Dotty, Georgia Clarke & Giggsy You're a Star and Louise Hufton & Sox travelled to Lincolnshire showground to compete at the BRC NAF 5* National Championships. The team originally qualified at the Area 3 competiton at Bold Heath Equestrain Centre in July and eagerly awaited their day at the championships. Only team teams on the whole competition finished on a score of 0 faults and it came down to a matter of seconds to separate the two with Cumbria placing an amazing second!
2021 Summer Dressage and Show Jumping League reaches its conclusion
2021 saw the introduction of a new Dressage and Show Jumping League series at Cumbria Riding Club. The league was made up of 4 competition days each featuring dressage from intro to elementary and show jumping from 50cm to 90cm.

Return of the Fun Jump proves to be a great success!
In August 2021 we revived an old favourite - the CRC Fun Jump! Classes included Fancy Dress and Handy Pony along with a wide range of jumping classes such as Rider & Groom and Horse & Hound! A lot of fun was had by everyone involved and it was great to be back running this event again. Keep your eyes peeled for even more fun jumps running in the 2022 season!
We would encourage members to familiarise themselves with the BRC standards to ensure their Hats and Body Protectors are of the correct standards, as we will be carrying out spot checks at our events. The standards are also pinned up at the club field.
