    The last couple of years it has been run in October alongside the Eventing GP. No idea about this year yet, sorry! :}

    Could someone tell me the conditions/how it works/what it's all about? It sounds intriguing :D

    Or if there's a handy link, that'd be great too **)

    You do a dressage test then straight into a show jumping round then straight out to a few x country jumps these are all judged then I think its the top 6 in each class have to do the gallop. My daughter did it last year and had a ball

    there is also a vet inspection where you have to trot the horse up after the cross country part. so all gear besides bridle is removed, you have to stand them up then trot to a certain part turn around and trot back

    Thanks Pelly **)

    I more meant what are the "rules and regulations" etc though - ie. what the horse's age and previous experience is allowed to be...

    experience doesn't matter.

    it is in age groups
    horses 4 and 5 years
    horses 6 and 7 years
    ponies i think they are just 7 and under though the more ponies that start to come they may break it down a bit

    i would ring the organisers when it comes out but last year it was the horses age as at the 1 of jan

    just had someone I know asking if I was going and she gave me the impression she'd already entered and it sounded soonish? Must just be well organised :)

    yea im pretty sure its around that time every year...

    am aiming to have my new one running in the 6&7 years...
    also have my good boy in the gp... hopefully will turn out better for me than last year#(

    the trot up is just assessing the conformation of the horse and its suitability to be the next big eventing superstar

    they dont have to perform terribly well, just move nicely, be relatively well behaved and show jumping/x-country potential.

    its a really good day and the gp is very entertaining cos its done against the clock :D

    last year Nadine Bennet took entries before that Julie Isbister did, i don't think the EFA has a lot to do with the actual running of it
