Upgrading for Underage Athletes

If you have any queries regarding upgrading, please contact your regional co-ordinator, whose details can be found HERE.

Criteria for Underage Athletes Wishing to Upgrade

Upgrades to EI110

  • As per Eventing Ireland rules, recommended Minimum Requirements for an upgrade to EI110 (Junior or Pony), is 3 cross country clear jumping rounds in the current or preceding year at EI100J/EI100P or EI105 as a combination
  • Athletes wishing to upgrade to EI110 level must be assessed by a Level 2 or 3 Eventing Coach, or a senior rider (one with a proven record at 4*) who holds current vetting and child safeguarding certs. The assessor must not be their current trainer, to avoid a conflict of interest.
  • Assessments for EI110 can be done by the coaches privately (at their own venue or at an agreed venue). Cross Country MUST be assessed on grass, not in an arena. Alternatively, assessments may also be done at a HP Training day (arranged by HSI – please see below).
  • The coach will send the approved assessment form to Head Office by email, to be received at least TEN DAYS before the event at which the athlete wants to compete. No exceptions will be made.

Upgrades to EI100

  • Trainers can upgrade underage athletes to EI90 or EI100 level. You can upload the competency form found HERE onto the website or email the upgrade to Head Office at least TEN DAYS before the event (as above).
  • All new combinations must also send in competency forms (ie: if you have a new horse or pony, you must be assessed).
