The 22nd running of the tremendously popular horse showing series, SEIB Search for a Star, gets underway on Sunday at Osbaldeston Riding Centre.

SEIB Search for a Star was set up to give amateur riders and their horses the chance to compete at the Horse of the Year Show and has led to many thrilled competitors achieving this dream.

Each SEIB Search for a Star qualifier holds classes for Working ponies and horses, Riding Horse Hacks, Show Hunters and Cobs. Competitors have the chance to qualify for HOYS in each of these classes. SEIB Search for a Star is professionally run with strict entry criteria.

For the 2018 running of the series there is a new SEIB Search for a Star Mountain and Moorland Championship with its very own final at Your Horse Live 2018. Following on from the success of the first running of the SEIB Riding for the Disabled (RDA) Championships in 2017, this year sees the return of these Championships with extra qualifiers. In 2018, each of the five SEIB Search for a Star qualifiers will have an RDA class. The SEIB RDA Championship will take place at the British Show Horse Association Hunter Championships in September.

At each of the SEIB Search for a Star qualifiers there will also be a HOYS qualifier for the SEIB Racehorse to Riding Horse Show Championships.

Expert advice and support from the very experienced judges is on hand for all competitors at each of the five qualifiers. During the Championship build up there is the renowned Search for a Star workshop for all qualified combinations.

Competitors are advised to enter early.
