The purpose of the Grass Roots programme is to provide very novice riders with the opportunity to experience the
excitement of competition. The rules are, therefore, kept as flexible as possible but, please embrace the “spirit” of
the rules. Please do not use Grass Roots competitions as an easy opportunity to “pot hunt,” as it is not in the spirit
of the competition.
