These are qualifiers for the British Riding Clubs National Finals which are at Aston le Walls NN116RT on 20/21 May 2023, no provisional schedule available yet. The Combined Challenge is a test of the ability and timing of a horse and rider to negotiate a show jumping course followed by an arena cross-country course.

Show Jumping Phase: The time allowed will be based on a speed of 340mpm. Every commenced period of 1 second in excess of time allowed will be penalised by 0.4 time penalties.

Cross-country Phase: For competitions running in a small arena the Optimum Time will be based on a speed of 340mpm (Challenge 70), 350mpm (Challenge 80), 360mpm (Challenge 90), 375mpm (Challenge 100). For competitions running in a big arena the Optimum Time will be based on a speed of 375mpm for all heights. Competitions running using the old format (i.e. using a cross country course) the Optimum Time will be based on HT speeds (Challenge 80, 90, 100) and 400mpm for Challenge 70. Organisers, in accordance with the Official Steward, will decide on which speeds to use, and this will be communicated to all competitors.
