New World Ranking class added to the Derby schedule

The schedule for the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby Meeting (25-28 June) is now available, and we're delighted to announce the addition of a brand new World Ranking class for 2015.

Our June meeting comes just three days after another British CSI4* (international four-star showjumping event), Bolesworth International in Cheshire, and we hope that an increasing number of international riders will make the journey across to the UK to compete at both competitions. 

To further encourage more of the world's top riders to come to our June meeting with several of their horses, we have increased the prize fund of Saturday's Tom Hudson Derby Trophy to €24,500. Riders in this class will also be eligible for world ranking points, which determine their place on the international rider rankings.

Prize money in the Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard on the Thursday has also been doubled.

"After feedback from riders, we added an extra World Ranking class in order to provide more options for those bringing a number of horses to the Derby meeting," explains Hickstead Director Lizzie Bunn. "Now those who have a Derby horse, a speed horse and a Grand Prix horse will have multiple classes to enter."

The additional class brings the total of World Ranking classes at the Equestrian.com Derby meeting to four.

From the tiny cross-poles of the Mini Challenge to the towering heights of the Equestrian.com Derby fences, the June meeting caters for riders of all levels. Affiliated jumping classes start at 1m, while there are showing classes for hunters, cobs, riding horses, mountain and moorland ponies, hacks, working hunters, side-saddle and retrained racehorses. Scurry and carriage driving also feature at this show.

Entries are open now, with the schedule and online entries available on the Competitors' Zone section of the website.

The closing date for entries is 18th May.
