2 Events that Count Towards the Trophy
All Graded Endurance Rides and Competitive Endurance Rides listed in the official Endurance GB Ride Programme for the current year are eligible to count towards the Trophy. For avoidance of doubt, Pleasure Rides do not count.
The standard Endurance GB trophy points are also used on an accumulative basis for the RoR Trophy.
The Trophy is for the horse, not the rider, so points accumulated for more than one horse by a single rider will be accumulated separately for each horse.
The points accumulated by one horse with more than one rider will all count towards the Trophy for that horse.
The points for each ride will be attributed to the Trophy once the results for each ride have been ratified by the Endurance GB office.
However, only the best TEN scores will be counted towards the total for the Trophy.
4. Opting "in" to the RoR Trophy
Horses that comply with the qualifications summarises in Section 1 above will be entered for the RoR Trophy only when they are opted "in" by contacting the EGB office either by email at email@example.com or phoning 02476 697929.
5. League Table

£2,500 will be awarded to the winner and £500 to the runner up with the awards being presented at a Retraining of Racehorses prize giving ceremony which is usually held in November each year.
