In 2018 the RoR Elite Endurance Performance Award, in association with Endurance GB (EGB), will offer a first prize of £1,000 a second prize of £500 and a third prize of £250.
To qualify your horse must have raced in Great Britain and be registered with RoR and with EGB. The horse must be ridden by an EGB member.
To encourage competition, all previous winners (1st placed horses) from the RoR series 2010 onwards will no longer be eligible to win 1st place in the same competition in subsequent years.
All Graded Endurance Rides and Competitive Endurance Rides listed in the official EGB Ride Programme for the current year are eligible to count towards the Award. Click here to view and search on the EGB Ride Programme.
The standard EGB trophy points are used on an accumulative basis for the Elite Performance Award. 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.
The horse with the highest EGB Trophy Points will win the first prize. The prizes will be presented at a Retraining of Racehorses Awards Ceremony at the end of 2018.
To enter for the RoR Elite Performance Award, owners simply have to register their horses with RoR (Competition Membership is only £10 per year), join as a riding member of EGB and register their horse. Horses must have raced in Great Britain, The trophy points will accumulate automatically through the year.
