The method of scoring the showjumping phase is based on BE scoring for showjumping in horse trials. In the event of equality for team placings, the fourth riders score will count.If equality remains, the three scoring riders combined dressage score will be the deciding factor. If equality still remains, the fastest aggregate time of the three scoring riders in the showjumping phase shall be the deciding factor.In the event of an individual tie, the highest dressage score will be the deciding factor.

G7.1: Vaccination Procedure
Each pony or horse must have a valid vaccination certificate which undeniably
relates to that pony or horse, completed, signed and stamped on each relevant line
by a veterinary surgeon who is not the owner of the pony or horse. It must state that
the pony or horse has received the appropriate course of injections:
Primary Vaccination Two injections, the 2nd between 21 and 92 days after the 1st
First Booster An injection between 150 and 215 days after 2nd primary
Annual Booster An injection not more than 1 year after the preceding injection
None of the vaccinations may be given within the preceding 7 days including the day
of competition or entry into the competition stables.
Annual Boosters may be given on the same date each year, but this is not
If the pony or horse competes at FEI level then the annual booster is replaced
with a six monthly booster. This FEI Rule applies to any team that qualifies for
the Quadrille Championships at Olympia.
It is the competitor’s responsibility to ensure that their pony or horse has a valid
certificate that fully complies with the BHA Rules in all respects and to present that
certificate at all Official Competitions.
G7.2: Checking of Certificates
There is now a legal requirement for a valid passport to accompany the pony
or horse when travelling to any competition. If the passport does not contain
the full vaccination history then, to comply with rule G7.1, the flu vaccination
certificate must also accompany the pony/horse to all BRC Qualifiers and
Full vaccination histories and drawings will be checked at all Area Qualifiers and
at all Championships before the pony or horse is allowed to compete, and anyone
with an invalid certificate will not be permitted to compete. Any pony/horse that is in a
team competition that is disqualified at an Area Qualifier cannot be replaced, the
team will have to continue as a team of three, or if already a team of three, will have
to compete as individuals only, if there is an individual competition.
Any pony/horse disqualified at an Area Qualifier under this rule will be reported to the
BRC Office. If that team qualifies for a Championship then the disqualified
pony/horse cannot be replaced with a reserve for that Championship and the team
must remain a team of three.
Every effort will be made to ensure that the checking at Area Qualifiers is carried out
correctly. BRC accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any losses suffered, whether
directly or indirectly, due to incorrect checking at any BRC Area Qualifier or
Championships. It is the sole responsibility of the competitor to ensure that their
certificate is valid and it should not be assumed that because a certificate has been
accepted at one competition in good faith it would also be accepted at another
G7.3: Dual Names
The name shown on the certificate/passport must be the one that is used on all
official competition entry forms. If a stable name is also shown on the
certificate this must be endorsed by a veterinary surgeon.
G7.4: Ponies/Horses Foaled before 1 January 1980
Ponies or horses foaled before 1 January 1980 need not have the first booster
injection (between 150 and 215 days after the second injection) but must have had
annual boosters (every 12 months) thereafter. Any ponies or horses foaled before 1
January 1980 who re-start their vaccinations after 1 January 1991 must have the full
course of injections including the first booster.
G7.5: Allergic ponies/horses & Homeopathic vaccinations
Ponies or horses that, for any reason, are unable to be vaccinated against equine
influenza will not be given any dispensation to compete. Homeopathic vaccinations
are not acceptable.
