    Day Membership and Day Registration

    A Day Membership and Registration is a temporary membership which effectively registers a 
    rider and a horse for a specific event. The cost of the day membership/registration depends on whether the rider/horse is a member of Eventing Ireland, or not. Each day membership is designated to a specific rider, each day registration is for a specific horse.  These are not transferable. In the event of a forced withdrawal before the event closing date, the Day Membership/Registration and Entry fee will be refunded in full in the currency they were purchased (less the credit card charge).
