Generous cash prizes, a photoshoot, branded clothing and a training session from a British Team rider, are among the rewards for the highest-scoring combinations taking part in a new BE100 League.

Taking place across the six BEDE Event competitions, the Agria Lifetime Equine BE100 League will culminate in the grand finale, the new CCI1* class at September’s Osberton International Horse Trials.

The league is open to registered members of British Eventing (BE) who haven’t competed at Intermediate or above in the previous five years. Points can be collected by a horse and rider combination in any BE100 division across the six qualification events and the finale*.

Pre-registration is required to join the league, and points cannot be collected for events completed prior to registration.

The participating events are as follows:

  • Oasby (1) 9 – 12 March (entries open 3 February)
  • Agria Shelford (1) 28 – 30 May
  • BCA 10 – 11 June
  • Catton Park 17 – 19 June
  • Brightling Park 1 – 2 July
  • Agria Shelford (2) 26 – 28 August
  • Osberton International 27 September – 1 October CCI1* Final

Points will be collected through the initial six events: Three points will be awarded upon completion; two points for jumping clear in the showjumping phase; and two points for jumping clear in the cross-country phase. Those who meet the Minimum Eligibility Requirements three times may enter the CCI1* at Osberton, at which points will be awarded for placings: 15 points to the winner, 14 points to the runner up, and so on, with 15th place receiving one point, while all double clears will receive a two-point bonus. The league prize-giving will be held alongside the CCI1* prize-giving in the main arena.

Exciting prizes

Agria has enhanced the prize pot for these events with:

  • An enhanced cash prize fund for the series totalling £1,500
  • A BEDE exclusive “Agria Sponsored Rider package” for one year (to include branded kit and a photoshoot) for the overall winner
  • An Agria-branded Bucas rug to the overall winner
  • A training session with one of Agria’s four sponsored British Team riders for overall winner

“We are thrilled to be supporting this series for talented amateur riders and to help spread word about our game-changing horse insurance,,” said Vicki Wentworth, MD of Agria UK. “With its reassurance that vet bills can be covered year after year for recurring injuries or repetitive or chronic conditions, it is especially important for the one or two-horse rider.

“I know personally the hard work involved in eventing to a good level as a hobby — and how thrilling it is when it goes well! Agria Lifetime Equine can’t wait to support and celebrate others as they do that.”

Stuart Buntine, Director of BEDE Events, added: “It’s great to see Agria Lifetime Equine expanding their support of eventing and we’re pleased to host this new league across all of the BEDE BE100 fixtures. The new CCI1*, at Osberton, will run with showjuming as the final phase and giving the riders a great destination fixture to end the season with.”

Pre-registration for riders is now open via

*GO BE classes will not count towards point allocations.
