First Round Qualification - Numbers to Qualify
Qualification for Trailblazers Second Rounds consists of a clear round in a height competition which will entitle that horse / pony and rider combination to compete in any number of second round qualifiers in that height competition.
Riders can qualify a horse or pony for all height competitions, but can only jump a maximum of four horses or ponies in any one competition at Trailblazers First Rounds.
Only qualified partnerships (horse / pony and rider) from a Trailblazers First Round Qualifier are eligible to compete at the Trailblazers Second Round Qualifiers.
Once a Competitor has qualified at a First Round Qualifier they will be issued with an envelope from the Venue at which they have qualified containing a congratulatory letter telling them that they have qualified. The Competitor will then have the choice to take up the qualification or not. Should the Competitor decide to accept the qualification for the second rounds, then they will return the congratulatory letter (within 14 days) together with the appropriate fee and TWO stamped addressed envelopes, to the Venue of Qualification. One envelope will be used to return a Qualification Card. The other will be used to forward details of the Second Round.
The Qualification Card can be used to compete in any Trailblazers Second Round at the level qualified. There is no restriction on the number of Second Rounds at the level qualified that a competitor may compete at to try to qualify for the Trailblazers Championship Finals.
