We are delighted to announce that the 2016 SEIB Trailblazers Championships will once again take place at the impressive Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. The dates have moved to ensure the Championship Finals are within the school holiday period, which varies around the country and fits within the venues schedule of events.

There are currently no restrictions on seniors riding ponies in senior Trailblazers first round qualifiers and the change will enable senior riders to compete in 65cm, 75cm & 85cm senior second rounds and to qualify for senior on ponies finals at the Championships.

With the superb facilities at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, finalists will enjoy that unbeatable big championship atmosphere, the thrill of riding in the grand arenas and the prospect of completing a lap of honour in magnificent style.

The popular Master class in the Park will also be taking place again at this year’s finals.  Last year Geoff Billington and Adam Kemp wowed the crowds with their entertaining and informative demonstrations.  

A full timetable for the Championships is available for download from the Trailblazers Championships website, along with further information on the finals.
