National Schools Equestrian Association
In 2011 KBIS started to support the National Schools Equestrian Association (NSEA) with their County Dressage Series, which we are now into our third year supporting. Having been established for over twenty years the NSEA work hard to promote equestrian sports in both State and Independent schools across Great Britain, promoting riding at all levels. Working together with the BHS, many schools now include riding as an option for both GSCE and A level P.E.
The National Dressage Series was introduced in 2010 and over 4,500 children took part in the series, which offers classes from Preliminary level through to Elementary. There are both team and individual classes and in 2012 over forty counties took part in the series, hosting Inter School competitions. These competitions then act as qualifiers for the annual NSEA Championships, which are held at Addington in October.
The Championships also include the county show jumping finals and jumping and style classes and is the highlight in the schools calendar. Last year just under a hundred riders qualified for the individual dressage championship and thirty teams, with the standard as high as ever.
