British Eventing South West Rankings 2017
What are the Rankings?The British Eventing South West Rankings were launched in 2015 as an initiative for the region to:
- reward consistently good performance at BE80(T), BE90 and BE100
- raise the profile of participating Horse Trials
- encourage competitors to enter BE events
EligibilityThese Rankings are open to all riders and all horses who compete at the events listed in our Calendar, except those who are HC. Rankings Points cannot be transferred between the three rankings, so it is possible that a combination could appear in all three Rankings over the year. Rankings Points are based on the combination of Horse and Rider, so a rider could appear several times in the same Rankings if they have several horses competing in the year. The Four Year Old and Five Year classes are excluded from the Rankings.
Ranking PointsThere are separate rankings at BE100, BE90 and BE80(T) levels. Points cannot be transferred between rankings. Points are awarded to combinations who complete in any of the following classes:
The three rankings are based on the combination of horse and rider. If a horse gains Ranking Points with two different riders in the season then it will appear in both Rankings. Points cannot be transferred between horses or between riders.

John Colson Training Bursaries
Lt. Col John Colson was the organiser of the popular event Longleat Horse Trials (which moved to Nunney in 2012) and had been working with the event since 1995. He took over as the organiser in 1998 and also went on to become the organiser of Nutwell Court in 2007 until his death in 2013.
John and his wife Jessica have been involved in the sport of Eventing since childhood and John was engaged in the sport in many ways including his role as a Controller, Course builder at Tidworth Horse Trials and Horse Trials Support Group member. John's passion for Eventing and Hunting developed during his time with The Kings Troop and he went on to organise the Army Horse Trials one day event at Sandhurst with Captain Mark Phillips in 1977.
The John Colson Training Bursaries are presented by the Nutwell Court Committee to the highest placed Junior rider and the highest placed Senior rider in each of the three Rankings. The exact details are on the Prizes page.
