Conditions of Entry

To be eligible to compete in either the 4 or 5 Year Old Masterclass, the following will apply: 
  • All horses must be registered in a WBFSH studbook, with the sire and dam documented on their passport
  • All horses to be entered via the Eventing Ireland website.  Copies of passports must be sent to Eventing Ireland Head Office (Head Office ) before close of entries so breeding can be recorded and confirmed in the Event Programme
  • The Masterclass is open to day members and horses competing on day registration.  If not members, competitors must make themselves and their horses web-only members
General Competition Information

The 5yo Masterclass will take place at 6pm on Friday 26 July

The 4yo Masterclass will take place at 6pm on Saturday 27 July

Entries will be limited to 32 for each class

All entries will be checked to ensure they are eligible to compete (ie: breeding is correct).  If a horse does not meet the eligibility requirements, entries will be refunded (less administration fee).

If maximum entries are reached, Eventing Ireland will open a waitlist which will be on a first come, first served basis.  Entries close at noon on 12 July.

Warm Up:

Riders/Horses will warm up for both flatwork and jumping in the specified warm up area.  

Start Order:

Riders will proceed in strictly numerical order to the Dressage Arena where they will perform their Flatwork Test.

Flatwork Phase

The horse and rider will show a required sequence of basic movements, at walk, trot and canter in a 20m x 60m arena, which will allow the horse to move freely forward.  This will not be marked per movement [like a dressage test] but will be assessed as to the quality of each of the three paces, and the overall way of going ie: the willingness of the horse to perform the test.  Faults such as being “over bent/behind the vertical” etc. will be penalised.  

All trot and canter work should be at working paces and rising trot is encouraged.

Immediately after the Flatwork Test, riders will proceed to the jumping area where they will start the jumping test.

The Flatwork Test can be downloaded below

Jumping Phase

The 4yo jumping will be at EI90 level (90cm max) and the 5yo jumping will be at EI100 level (1m max).

The horse will jump five Show Jumps [six elements including a double] and then proceed to six portable Cross Country Fences, which will be simple and inviting.  They will then leave the arena for the final Conformation Phase.

Conformation Phase

Riders will be asked to remove the saddle before commencing this phase which will include walking in hand and a trot up.

  • Tack is as per Eventing Ireland Rules, snaffle bridles only, with approved bits
  • Spurs are allowed per Eventing Ireland rules
  • Front boots and a running martingale are both optional for Flatwork and Jumping phases
  • No hind boots or bandages of any kind to be worn in any phase
  • A jumping whip is only permitted in the Jumping Section (this may be handed to you before you enter the jumping arena).
