Welcome to Crosby Stables! 


Crosby Stables by Shotechi

ABOUT
Crosby's Grand Prix Showjumping Clinic is a one-week advanced course for showjumpers looking to expand and deepen their knowledge about the sport. It's aimed towards both human and equine athletes who are competing on 5* level or plan to rise in the ranks. It's not a course for beginners!
Internationally recognized trainers and successful riders give insight into their experiences and knowledge through daily workshops and lessons - both theoretical and practical. Ridden lessons are ndividually fitted to each rider's and horse's needs in small groups of 5 max. 

ACCOMMODATION 

Horses are boarded in the guest tract of the stable, while riders can book either single or double rooms in two shared guest apartments (one kitchen per apartment, each room has a separate bathroom). The guest quarters are in the main building, but have their own separate entry. 
Three meals per day are included in the booking price.

How To Participate


Crosby's GP Showjumping Clinic is open for everyone! It doesn't matter if you are a registered HARPG stable or an independent player. 
There is no registration, no qualification - just go ahead and draw your characters joining. Please add it to the HA-Champions-League gallery, so we all can admire it!

However, please keep in mind that, even though there is no formal registration or required experience, your horse and rider should at least be fit to jump those heights from a roleplaying point of view - else an expensive clinic wouldn't make that much sense.
For roleplaying purposes, the clinic takes place in the first week of every second month, but you're welcome to enter at any time.


Qualifier for the HARPG Champions League


Now here's the interesting stuff!
A successful completion of the GP Jumping Clinic automatically qualifies participants to register for the HA-Champions-League
The catch is, "normal" qualification for the League requires at least three pictures - via the Clinic, you get the opportunity to qualify by only drawing two pictures. That way, you can get new characters into the competition much easier! 

The following pictures are mandatory to complete the clinic:
ONE picture showing your horse and rider during the workshop "Course Jumping" on Saturday,
PLUS 
ONE picture showing your horse and rider during a workshop of your choice.

These pictures have to be fullbody, fully coloured, and need to have a background. 
If qualifying more than one horse or rider, both can be shown in and qualify with the same picture. (in that case, they don't both have to be shown jumping or performing)
Extra pictures are not required, but encouraged! This is an excellent opportunity to socialize and roleplay with fellow entrants, why not make use of it?
