Show Affiliation

We are currently inviting new shows, venues, pony clubs, riding clubs and agricultural shows to apply to hold qualifiers for the 2017 Sunshine Tour Championships and existing affiliates to submit their 2017 show dates.

Affiliated shows can be hosted by any size of show or centre that offers unaffiliated competitions. We don’t mind if you hold one show a year or one every week, our competitors take part at all sorts of shows and venues across the country. You can apply for qualifiers for dressage, show jumping, showing and eventers challenges.
