As with Horse Distance Scolls it is requested that Riders apply for these awards on the attached application form, the cut off date for this year for 15,000 plus is 31/08/2016.

It should be noted that all previous applicants do not need to re-apply as your application forms will be processed accordingly now.

It has become apparent the merging of three data bases to create AERASPACE has created many rider distance anomalies. Jo Bailey the AERA distance registrar is working her way through errors as they are brought to her attention.

All who were expecting recognition and those who are wondering if they are there, should go into AERASPACE and check their distance and advise Jo Bailey of any anomalies ASAP, please email [email protected]
