EGB LANCASHIRE GROUP TROPHY LIST (2017)
We have recently reviewed all of the Lancs Group Trophies as some of the definitions were not too clear, and their interpretation was not always used in the sense that was intended. We have therefore included here a list of the current Lancs EGB Trophies available, and the relevant Horse and/or Rider qualifications/entry requirements etc. that apply to them. These rules will apply from 1 January 2017. Please read this carefully and check which trophies and awards you are eligible for. Most of the trophies have the same name as used previously, but there are some changes particularly in age and distance qualifications, so please don’t assume that you do still qualify for the award which you may have competed for previously. As far as is possible, we have tried to keep the qualifications for individual trophies in-line with similar National Awards, in accordance with National EGB Rules and Guidelines. Please note that points or kilometres accrued by non- members will not count towards trophies or mileage rosettes. However, kilometres completed by horses/ponies owned by EGB members but ridden by non-members can contribute to the horse/pony’s cumulative kilometerage. Please also remember that the only EGB Lancs Group approved rides are either EGB National Rides, those appearing on the EGB Lancs Group Fixture list, or other EGB Group Rides (not other group Charity Rides). Not all rides advertised on Facebook are approved by EGB Lancs Group! Trophies based on Non-Competitive Kilometres
