British Show Jumping

KBIS started its support of the British Show Jumping Association with the sponsorship of the BSJA Amateur and Veteran Championships. In 2009 we then took on the British Novice Championships, the leading competition for grass roots riders. Now named the KBIS British Equestrian Insurance Senior British Novice Championship Series it attracts over 65,000 competitors each year.


The KBIS British Novice series is highly contested, being set at a height of 90cm in the first round, it is suitable for amateur riders as well as professionals with young and novice horses. British Novice classes are run at numerous equestrian centres throughout the year providing plenty of opportunity to qualify for one the regional competitions and then the subsequent championship, which is held at the British Show Jumping Scope Festival during August/September. The Scope Festival is one of the major fixtures in the show jumping calendar and takes place at the Stafford County Showground running over six days.


In order to qualify for the championships competitors must jump double clears in at least four British Novice Competitions between the 1st of May and the 30th April. Once completed you will then be eligible to ride in one of the twelve regional finals held throughout the country.


Those riders who go on to gain a treble clear at a Regional Final then qualify for the Championships. Competitors can enter up to two regional final competitions in order to try and gain their championship entry.
