Still Time To Register Your School For The Schools Equestrian Games 2020
With a motto of “showcasing tomorrow’s equestrian talent”, the Schools Equestrian Games 2020 provides a platform for all school children to compete in equestrian sport at all levels of competition. A series of One Day Events around the country, the event gives children the opportunity to compete for their schools in Eventing Championships, Arena Eventing and Show Jumping.
Eligibility & Registration for the Equestrian Games 2020
The series is open to any child attending school, with consent from the headteacher to represent their school at competitions. Home-schooled children can also compete.
An SEG Registration Form is required to be completed per school, but only the first time your school is represented at an SEG competition. For registered schools, a new form is only required if the headteacher changes.
