How do I get Talent Spotted for the Training Pathway & TSR/HOYS Showing Master Class?
Please go to the Training Pathway page of the website for all the details.
Am I Eligible?
The TSR Training Pathway & HOYS Showing Master Class is EXCLUSIVELY for AMATEURS. Riders MUST be Amateurs as per the following definition AND must not ride on a regular basis for owners or professional producers no matter if they are paid or not and must not have ridden any animal at the Horse of the Year Show in the past 3 years and the current year. The horse/pony must not have competed at the Horse of the Year Show in the past 3 years.
You are NOT an Amateur if :
- Your main income is from working with horses or ponies either as a self employed person or as an employee
- You engage in breeding, livery, buying, selling or dealing in a commercial capacity.
- Receive remuneration for employment in the connection with horses in racing, showing, livery or riding school (inc teaching)
- Show a horse owned or sponsored by a company or commercial firm.
- The horse/pony is stabled in a professional show producer's yard during the current season. You may keep your horse or pony at part livery or DIY Livery as long as the owner of the yard does not fall under the definition of Professional Show Producer. You may receive lessons / training in either a clinic or one to one basis.
- If you teach or train horses or riders on a paid or unpaid basis you are not eligible.
- Junior Riders under 18 years can only be classed as amateurs if both parents are amateurs.
If you work with Horses/ponies but it is not your main income it must be on a 'hobby' basis and if this is the case you may have a ruling from the office on request. The definition by TSR of a Professional Show Producer is a person who derives income from keeping and training horses and ponies for the show ring even if this is not their sole or main source of income.
