Premier league riders head for British Open

The BSJA’s new championship series will come to a head at the British Open Show Jumping Championships (12-15 April).

Points were allocated to the highest placed riders at the Premier Shows this winter and the top 20 have been invited to contest a £15,000 prize fund at the British Open.

By grouping the Winter A&B Grand Prix at Premier Shows into a series, the BSJA has created a league for both amateur and professional riders and both newly upgraded and more established horses.

Points were earned at South View, Addington, Rowallan, Patchetts, Towerlands and Arena UK. The winner of the Championship Final at the British Open will receive a £5000 prize.
