GBPRE Online Show

GBPRE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS 2020

Online Photo Show 1 May 2020 to 31 May 2020


Welcome

Welcome to our GBPRE online photo show, bringing the GBPRE show straight to your stable door.

We will really miss everyone coming together to compete at Hartpury this year. With this in mind we have tried to capture the spirit of the show in our online photo show with classes for everyone, including free entry classes for our valued GBPRE members.

A photo show is exactly as it sounds, you select your classes to compete in and submit your photo entry.

Rosettes will be awarded 1st to 6th place in each class, kindly sponsored by Knights Equine Transport.

Special rosettes will be awarded to the highest placed purebred Lusitano in certain classes, kindly sponsored by the Lusitano Breed Society of Great Britain.

Prizes will be awarded to all 1st placed competitors, 2nd and 3rd placed competitors win £5 prize money kindly sponsored by GBPRE.

In-Hand and Ridden Champions win a luxury show rug, champion rosette and sash supplied by GBPRE, and the Supreme of Show will win a £200 Knights Equine Transport Voucher, supreme rosette and sash.

50% of all our show profits will go to the Animal Health Trust Charity – they currently need government funding to continue their vital work; should they close we will reassess our chosen UK equine charity.

Our photo show prize pot has a total value of over £1,000 !!!
