Vi är glada att välkomna Dig som reiningryttare till Svenska Ridsportförbundet!

Arbetet med att hitta formerna med reiningen är i uppstarten men ni kommer här få den information ni behöver för att kunna komma till start internationellt.


Ni behöver ett medlemskap i en förening ansluten till Svenska Ridsportförbundet. Förteckning över alla föreningar finns via denna länk:—O/

Användarkonto i Tävlingsdatabasen – TDB

TDB är det system som all tävlingsverksamhet administreras genom. Här behöver ni registrera er genom att skapa ett användarkonto för att genom det kunna lösa er ryttarlicens och hästlicens vilket är obligatoriskt för alla tävlingsryttare inom SvRF. I ryttarlicensen ingår också ett försäkringsskydd.Betalning för era licenser sköts också genom TDB genom att ni sätter in pengar på ert konto.Mer om hur man skapar användarkonto finns via denna länk:

Ryttarlicens beställs genom TDB.

För att rida endast en internationell tävling behöver ni lösa en seniorlicens. För fler internationella tävlingar behöver ni lösa internationell licens. Är man osäker hur många CRI-tävlingar man ska rida kan man först lösa seniorlicens och uppgradera den till internationell senare. Juniorer löser juniorlicens vilken även gäller för internationella tävlingar. Ryttarlicens gäller per kalenderår. Information om hur ni löser ryttarlicens finns via denna länk:


För att kunna lösa licens finns krav på något som kallas “Grönt Kort”. Detta kommer ni tillsvidare inte behöva men för att ni ska kunna komma till läget att lösa licens måste ni meddela någon av mina kollegor att ni är reiningryttare som ska ha licens. De kommer då att lyfta spärren för er angående det gröna kortet. Kontakta Lena Svensson 0220-456 07 eller Malin Berntzén 0220-456 01  malin.berntzen@ridsport.seObservera att ni måste ha skapat ert konto innan ni kontaktar Malin eller Lena!


Beställs även den genom TDB och hästlicensen gäller under hästens livstid.Vi har ett samarbete med ASVH vilket gör att hästuppgifter kan hämtas från deras databas. Era hästar måste däremot fyllas i manuellt och kopior på hästens ursprungspass ska skickas/ mailas till Svenska Ridsportförbundet.Mer om hästlicens finns vis denna länk:

What is Reining?

Published by:

Designed to showcase the maneuvers of a working ranch horse, reining is a judged competition that highlights the athletic ability of a horse through the performance of required elements such as small slow circles, large fast circles, flying lead changes, roll backs over the hocks, 360 degree spins, and exciting sliding stops that are the hallmark of the reining horse.

Dubbed “Western Dressage”, this variety of movements is linked into a graceful sequence with no observable resistance on the horse’s part.

As the fastest growing sport in the equine industry, Reining quickly gained popularity not only in the USA but throughout the world. In 2000, reining became the first Western Discipline to be approved by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) and became a full medal discipline at the 2002 World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain. The 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany also featured reining as a full medal sport before large sold-out audiences. In 2010, a the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky, Reining was a smash hit with sold out performances, major media coverage and network television live broadcast reaching tens of millions of homes regionally and more than 40 million around the world. Reining was demonstrated at the Olympics in Sydney, Australia and is being considered by some as a possible candidate full-medal Olympic sport for the summer Olympiad.

For new players

Published by:

If you’ve never placed your first bet on the horses then you have come to the right place. Placing wagers is extremely easy and can be done by anyone in the UK with a credit or debit card and over the age of 18. There are dozens of licenced UK sports betting companies that accept bets on the horses every single day. If you are outside the UK than there are still plenty of options. Just remember to always go somewhere that is licensed in your jurisdiction. If you live in a country which doesn’t have licensed operators or where the government simply hasn’t decided either way whether to legalise online betting then you should always sign up for a company like bet365. They are one of the most reliable and trustworthy online operators and accept players from pretty much every country in the world.

To place your first bet simply visit the sports book of choice. In this case we will sign up to bet365 (get the full deposit bonus here). Once you have found the join page simply fill the  form in with your correct and accurate details. Most sites will needs you to verify these details before making a withdrawal. This is 1st to ensure that you are over the age of 18 and secondly to make sure that your details are accurate and that you do not have multiple accounts. Those of you that are not of legal age should simply not sign up as you will not get paid and you may be banned for life from that particular company and any other affiliated companies.

Once you have your account set up and verified you can then make a deposit using credit or debit cards. Most sites such as bet365 will also accept PayPal. This is a new deposit option for those of you in the UK and several other European countries in which PayPal have started accepting gambling transactions.

Once you have money on the site than simply find your selected horse race. The site’s should be easy to navigate and should have a link to horseracing somewhere on the homepage. Now you should have a list of horse races simply select the particular race and your horse should appear. By clicking on the odds it should add it to your bet slip. From here you can enter the amount you wish to bet and whether you want it to be each way. The each way info should be listed next to the price. Betting each way simply means you are covering if the horse will finish in the top few positions and you will be paid out at lower odds. For example with a 20 horse race it may pay the top four positions but with quarter of the odds that a win will pay. Once you have your bet amount decided click on the place bet button. Some sites will ask you to verify your bet and you may need to press submit again while other sites such as bet365 will place the bets as soon as you click submit so make sure your bet amount is accurate. You will then get verification of your bet being place as well as a ticket number. You can view your bets in the my account section or in the case of bet365 on the right-hand side you can click on my bets and it will show you a list of all your unsettled bets.

If you still have problems placing wagers get in contact with the site or go on live chat. Any decent sports book will have live support around the clock as well as a live chat option which is usually the best support method especially if you live outside the country or do not speak  English very well.
