The Championship that features some of the very best of the country’s novice horses is now under new sponsorship as Equitop Myoplast®, the leading nutritional supplement which supports lean muscle growth in horses, signs up to sponsor British Showjumping’s prestigious Senior Foxhunter Series and Championship for the next two years.
A series which has been in existence for over 60 years, the British Showjumping Senior Foxhunter Series and Championship is one of the most prestigious and important championships in the British Showjumping calendar. Combinations compete in two rounds of competition with the aim of getting to the hotly contested final held each year at Horse of the Year Show at Birmingham’s NEC.
Horses qualify by having jumped a clear round in the first round qualifier, followed by a clear round in the jump-off in at least four First Round competitions. The Second Rounds are for horses which have qualified to compete and it is the first two horses, disregarding those already qualified, that will qualify for Horse of The Year Show. The first five, disregarding those already qualified, will qualify for the British Showjumping National Championships where there will be a ‘last chance’ class to qualify with four qualifying tickets available. The British Showjumping National Championships will be hosted at the National Agricultural and Exhibition Centre (NAEC), Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire 8th – 13th August 2017.

Equitop Myoplast® has been designed with the aim of helping horses respond to the demands of training and rehabilitation. It is a unique amino acid supplement which provides horses with the building blocks needed for lean muscle growth. It has been tested free of doping relevant substances.
