A league rewarding those older riders whose passion for eventing burns as strong as ever, with the results of a maximum of five British Eventing competitions completed on one horse to decide the winner of a prestigious trophy accompanied by a generous prize fund.
An initiative supported by BETTALIFE, providers of targeted nutritional support for horses, humans and dogs and the Event Horse Owners Association.

▪ To be considered for the award, riders must register their eligibility with the EHOA by sending their name, BE membership number and the name of their horse, and stating that they agree to be bound by the rules of the competition by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org ▪ Ideally, applications to register should be received before the rider and horse have competed in a maximum of THREE British Eventing competitions.
▪ The final date for registration is 1 September 2023.
▪ If more than three competitions have been completed at the time of registration, then the first three completions are counted and subsequent completions are ignored until registration is requested. Thereafter, all subsequent, best scores are considered up to a maximum of five completions.
▪ Riders may register only one horse per season.
▪ By registering, competitors agree to comply with all British Eventing rules and ethical considerations and to the publication of their results, commentary and photographs
