South Essex Launches Its 2003 Search For Showing Stars

The first selection day for this year's South Essex Insurance Brokers Search for a Star championship will be held at Osbaldeston Equestrian Centre, Lancashire, on June 7.

Search for a Star is designed to give amateur owners and riders an opportunity to compete at the Horse of the Year Show, due to be held at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, on September 17-21.

Horse and ponies which fall into the following categories are eligible - Working Hunter, Riding Club Show Horse, Show Ponies and Show Hunter Ponies, Cobs, Show Hunter and Riding Horse/Hack.

Judging on selection days follows accepted showing routine, except that riders can talk to the judges afterwards to seek their opinions. Two entries from each class, provided they reach a good show standard, are invited to take part in Birmingham.

Other selection days this year will be held at West Wilts Equestrian Centre, June 28; Merrist Wood College, Surrey, July 19; College Equestrian Centre, Bedford, July 20; Richmond Equestrian Centre, Yorkshire, August 10.
